New NCIS Season 17 Is Officially Happening! CBS Already Renewed It Early
Hey, “NCIS” fans. We have super great news for you guys in this article. It turns out that NCIS’ very strong ratings and weekly viewership numbers have impressed the folks over at CBS once again. We are officially hearing that CBS just had to go ahead and renew their ratings superstar NCIS for yet another season! That will,of course,be season 17.
According to the folks over at TV Line, this awesome announcement took place on or around April 11, 2019. During the announcement, the president of CBS Entertainment Kelly Kahl had some lovely words to say about NCIS and all of you terrific fans that watch the show.
He stated, “NCIS has been a global juggernaut for almost two decades. Its viewers are clearly the most loyal of any drama on television. They are passionate about the characters, the plot lines, and the storytelling.
We owe a huge debt of gratitude to the gifted production team and the cast, led by the extraordinary Mark Harmon. We are delighted that the show will remain a lynchpin of the CBS schedule this coming season.”
It’s currently not yet known how many episodes the brand new season 17 will feature, but after skimming over the ratings and viewership numbers for season 16, there’s no doubt in our minds that CBS will give NCIS another full, 24 episode season order. That means Mark Harmon and company will be very busy again this summer, filming a ton of new episodes for you guys.
Also, if any of you are fans of the two NCIS spin off shows, NCIS: Los Angeles and NCIS: New Orleans, you’ll be happy to know that those two shows were also renewed for brand new seasons. That means the New Orleans cast will return for a new season 6, and the Los Angeles cast will return for a new season 11.
TV Line pointed out a couple of other CBS shows that were renewed for new season.They are: Criminal Minds. (renewed for a 15th and final season), FBI, God Friended Me, Magnum P.I., Young Sheldon, Mom and The Neighborhood. If any of you guys are fans of those shows, this article is definitely bringing you bundles of joy. We aim to please.
I want to briefly go over these fantastic ratings and viewership numbers for NCIS season 16. Season 16 started off really strong, and just never stopped! The season 16 premiere drew in 12.558 million LIVE viewers, and it scored a 1.43 rating for the 18-49 year old demographics.
The most recent episode 20 that aired last week, April 16, 2019, brought in 11.879 million viewers with a 1.12 ratings score. During the season, the LIVE viewership numbers fluctuated between 11 and 12 million per episode. One of the weeks, it brought in 13.370 million viewers, which is huge. The LIVE viewership numbers never dropped below 11 million per episode. Again, that is just huge.
Those types of numbers means this show won’t ever end unless the NCIS cast just wants to end it. CBS will definitely keep paying for this show. All these LIVE viewership and ratings numbers are only for the United States. This doesn’t include the worldwide viewership this show gets.
Alright guys. That’s all we’ve got for this latest NCIS report, but definitely stay tuned for more.
