The end of “NCIS” is coming, it’s death by paper cuts.
The 19th season saw the show move to Mondays on CBS at 9pm, leaving its 18 year run on Tuesdays. Star Mark Harmon is one foot out the door, and none of the people on the show except for McGee are recognizable.
Last night’s episode fell 5% in total viewers, and almost 16% in the key demo. Ouch! It’s a series low of 7.6 million viewers.
“NCIS” basically tied “The Voice (7.23 million) and walloped the also dying “Dancing with the Stars,” which came in at 4.77 million.
The good news for “DWTS” is that they went up 4% in the key demo even if their total viewers declined by 2%.
The other good news, for CBS, is that new spin off “NCIS: Hawai’i” took the 10pm hour and beat ABC’s “The Good Doctor.” So that’s something. CBS viewers like shows set in Hawaii, that’s for sure, with or without an apostrophe!
