Last year, despite being harder to find (thanks to varying football game times), the NCIS: Los Angeles TV show earned just about the same demo numbers it did in the year prior, while its total viewership increased by over 17%. Not too many shows grow like that, this far into the game. Can it continue on that track in the ninth season? Will NCIS: Los Angeles be cancelled or renewed for season 10? Stay tuned.
A military police procedural, NCIS: Los Angeles stars Chris O’Donnell, LL Cool J, Linda Hunt, Daniela Ruah, Eric Christian Olsen, Barrett Foa, Renée Felice Smith, and Nia Long. The CBS action drama centers on the high-stakes NCIS division charged with apprehending those elusive criminals who threaten the nation’s security. Working undercover with advanced technology, these highly trained agents readily risk their lives to bring down their targets.
