CBS Announces NCIS Renewal

February 1, 2013 by Marc Berman in Highlights with 2 Comments

FIRST OFFICIAL RENEWAL OF THE 2013-14 SEASON

CBS, not surprisingly, has issued its first official renewal for the 2013-14 season to the most-watched show in primetime, NCIS. And the pick-up will include the return of series star and producer Mark Harmon, who has signed a contact extension.

“In a world gone niche, NCIS keeps getting bigger, and Mark Harmon continues to define the role of leading man on the #1 show on television,” said Leslie Moonves, President and Chief Executive Officer, CBS Corporation. “NCIS is the type of franchise every company wants in today’s global content ecosystem – high-quality storytelling that generates passionate viewers and drives revenue on every conceivable platform.”

Currently in its 10th season, the JAG spin-off, which debuted as NCIS: Naval Criminal Investigative Service on September 23, 2003, is averaging 21.48 million viewers (according to Nielsen). Comparably, that is up by seven percent over last year and is the highest rated drama in primetime among adults 25-54 (5.9 rating/15 share).

    I wonder how long this show will be on TV? Probably until the cast calls it quits at this rate.

    NCIS could be the next Gunsmoke or Law & Order at this point.
