NCIS Earns Award as Most Watched Program in the Universe

NCIS is officially the most-watched show in the world. It actually won an award for it this week.


unforgettable averaged 11.5-13 million viewers each episode and look what happened to that they canceled it and then brought it back as summer filler. not a bad show but it didn't bring in the demo rating they wanted which is probably what will happen to golden boy. it follows ncis so that should help it.


Not sure why Golden Boy is looking slim for renewal, it has over 9 million viewers each week! It is such a great show!
I really enjoyed Smash.
