Though NCIS: Los Angeles airs on Sunday nights and often has inconsistent start times during football season, it’s remained a solid performer for CBS. It’s become tougher and tougher to establish new shows these days, so networks are sticking with proven performers more than ever before. Will NCIS: LA be cancelled or renewed for season 15? Stay tuned.
