• The new season of NCIS is here
  • New episodes are already airing in the US
  • But they are not very successful

NCIS returned to TV screens on September 19th. The series started its 20th season on the American broadcaster CBS.

NCIS had lousy ratings

Its numbers were lower than ever. NCIS sets a negative record. According to serienjunkies.de only 5.8 million viewers watched the show.

According to TVInsider, that's 31 percent less than when Season 19 premiered a year ago. Fans wonder if the exit of fan-favorite Mark Harmon could be a reason behind the low ratings.

The latter played "Leroy Jethro Gibbs" but decided to leave the series. The main role is now played by Gary Cole.

 However, the reason for these low ratings could also have been due to the show being broadcast at the same time as a Football game. In addition, the crossover series NCIS: Hawaii could also be to blame for the low ratings.

Not all viewers follow both series, and they usually opt for one over the other. In NCIS: Hawaii, Vanessa Lachey takes on the lead role of "Jane Tennant." The first broadcast took place on September 20, 2021.
