NCIS: The Summary of Ratings for Season 20 Fall Finale


For years, NCIS has dominated the network ratings. However, the numbers have dropped significantly in Season 20. The long-running police procedural’s recent fall finale, which aired on CBS on December 5th, received poor ratings. And the spinoffs aren’t doing much better either. Both NCIS: Hawai’i and NCIS: Los Angeles are declining in popularity.

‘NCIS’ Season 20 fall finale ratings

According to Spoiler TV, the NCIS Season 20 fall finale drew an estimated 6.4 million viewers in its Monday night time slot. And the show is averaging just 6.555 million live viewers per week this season. This represents a significant 10.5 percent decrease from just a year ago.

This is the first full season without Mark Harmon (Leroy Jethro Gibbs), which may account for the drop in ratings. His departure was the latest in a series of major cast changes over the last few seasons. And, after nearly two decades on the air, it appears that viewers are losing interest.

NCIS was consistently at the top of the ratings and drew 12 to 15 million live viewers throughout the 2010s. For years, it was considered TV’s most-watched drama, but the show has officially lost that title.

Ratings for the spinoffs have also fallen

NCIS: Hawai’i, the spinoff, is currently in its second season and airs Monday nights after the flagship series. Its final episode of 2022 drew an estimated 4.5 million viewers, a decrease from the previous year.

Both NCIS and the Hawai’i spinoff are averaging smaller audiences than last year, and key demographics are declining. The only good news is that they were the network shows with the highest ratings on Monday night.

NCIS triumphed over NBC’s The Voice, ABC’s The Great Christmas Light Fight, Fox’s The Cleaning Lady, and the CW’s The Waltons Homecoming Movie. NCIS: Hawai’i outperformed The Good Doctor on ABC and That’s My Jam on NBC.

NCIS: Los Angeles, which is currently airing Season 14 on Sunday nights, has the lowest ratings of all. The show is averaging just 4.119 million viewers per weekend, a decrease of 22.74 percent from last year.

Another ‘NCIS’ Season 20 crossover has arrived.

All three shows are currently on hiatus for the winter and will not return with new episodes until the new year. A major crossover event involving all three shows will take place in 2023 to boost ratings. The break will end on Monday, January 2, and it will be the first time that all three shows have aired on CBS on the same night.

The evening will begin with a new episode of NCIS, followed by Hawai’i, and finally Los Angeles. The storyline throughout the night that will bring everyone together will be the death of a beloved professor who taught characters from each of the shows.

The man’s death is staged as a suicide, but his students-turned-NCIS agents all believe otherwise.
