Some were worried that NCIS: Los Angeles being moved to Monday nights, away from the NCIS mothership, would lead to the show’s cancellation. Well, the ratings have dropped quite a lot but the series will return for a seventh season.
Based in the City of Angels, NCIS: Los Angeles follows the members of an elite division of the Naval Criminal Investigative Service (NCIS), one that specializes in undercover assignments. This drama stars Chris O’Donnell, LL Cool J, Linda Hunt, Daniela Ruah, Eric Christian Olsen, Barrett Foa, Renée Felice Smith, and Miguel Ferrer.
Airing on Monday nights, the numbers for NCIS: Los Angeles have indeed come way down in season six. It’s averaged a 1.62 rating in the 18-49 demographic with 9.32 million. That’s a decline of 34% in the demo and a drop of 37% in viewership.
While that’s not good news for the show’s future, the series is still CBS’ fifth highest-rated drama series of the season. Those ratings are apparently still good enough to secure a renewal for the 2015-16 season.
