NCIS Season 12 Report Card: Grade It!

As for the ratings this season....we've had quite a few series low in viewers and demo. And overall ratings isn't looking so good either. This show hit it's peak in Season 10 and has been downhill ever since. But hey, apparently the show is doing fine even with these series low. :-)

That's okay, chris. I'm about to turn 65, your opinion will become more irrelevant as you age. When NCIS began, I was working 12/7, but a couple of years later a lady turned me on to it and I hit Netflix (maybe Amazon) and caught up in a marathon and have watched it with dedication since. I do wish the ad people would catch on to the fact that us more mature people buy much more than depends and Viagra.
(I've never bought either, but I do buy big screen tvs, electronics, and other high priced stuff that the twenties don't.)

Well that's to be expected of any aging show. And while the show hit its audience peak in Season 10, the demo started dropping in Season 8. And, really, all you have to do is look at the long list of series who hit their season lows this year. Why should NCIS in its 12th season be exempt from that? Why are TV pundits saying that only a handful of shows will be hitting 2.0 or above next season? The ratings landscape is changing. Why else are networks happy to renew shows averaging 1.1 in the 18 - 49 demo?
What we're really seeing is Nielsen's increasing inability to capture all the viewers watching network content as viewers find other content delivery vehicles.
So, yeah, NCIS is doing fine. And its viewer percentage drop is well within norms for an aging show.
I do wish people would do a little more research (like how about analyzing the ratings for a few other shows in NCIS' genre and/or years on the air), then tell me NCIS is underperforming when compared to other scripted series.

People watch only for Gibbs or Tony, what's the difference if they watched for Ziva? Everyone has a favorite and some of these opinions are getting contradictive when most watch for one person, no matter who it may be.

I look at it as weeding out the posers. The so called fans who watched for one character and/or the nonexistent love story.
The show is now left with the fans who started watching day one and stuck with it no matter who quit and who replaced them.
Of course, I'm one of the old people that doesn't count, I am 50, so even my opinion is irrelevant.

Vikings Season 3 Episode 10 Review: The Dead

I was disappointed in the last episode. I couldn't get my teeth into it. It felt rushed

With the actress constantly getting PG the writers have to figure a way to deal with it as best they can. Any way they choose/chose would be awkward at best as the show is not a family show to begin with. Lucky next season will be the last as a lot of the quirkiness of the original show wears off and the writers try to figure out new and different things to do with the characters same characters..

I don't mind their family stuff I just want to see more of Booth and Brennan together that's why this story is tough because the separation is necessary. I re watched episode and Brennan's part wasn't as bad as I thought but it would have been nice if they could have enjoyed her pregnancy more. Hopefully last two episodes will get them closer

she is one of the worst actresses I have ever had the displeasure of watching

Such lazy writing to go for Iris as 'character who needs work' when SO many other characters need so much more. I mean, I expect it from The Flash fandom but I still can't remember a single time Iris has been whiny or self-involved. Then again, you gave Captain Cold "best villain" completely inexplicably. He's such a mediocre character that is completely one-note and, at the very best, bland. Maybe he'll get better writing on LoT but on The Flash he was little more than a stock character, showing up occasionally when they needed to fill a specific trope.

At least we don't have to worry about Diane Neal replacing Tony anymore

Great recap for an incredible season of The Flash. It was an incredible season with some outstanding moments. I hope they keep the level of storytelling. ^_^

B - I liked a good part of the season. Grounded was my favorite along with Cadence. As far as characters go, Loved meeting Jake. Sergei was interesting but should never have been tied to Ari & should have lasted longer. Like the vibe between Tony & Zoe & am looking forward to hearing that the relationship is growing (off screen please). Same for Tim & Delilah. It's way past time that these characters had LIVES outside of the bullpen. As far as the negative goes, can someone please send Gibbs back to FLETC & give him a course in chain of command? McGee is not the SFA. Jimmy could & should be so much more than comic relief. Totally agree that it's past time for Abby to grow up. Also past time to let the angels come for Mike Franks's ghost. Was glad when they killed off Diane. Was upset that they sent Tobias down the same road Gibbs went. The Dornegat death was completely choreographed & dumb. & now for the worst part - it's time for the show to do something more permanent with writing off ziva. Feeding the fanatical trolls is killing the fanbase & fandom.
It's also past time to take script-writing away from GG. He really stinks at it. & now Gibbs....really, it's been 12 years & suspension of belief on how long Gibbs can remain in the field is getting to be impossible. Deal with it unless season 13 is the end of the show.

Loved your comment "past time to let the angels come for Mike Franks' ghost".

Thanks - Guess I'm in the minority but the character has been dead for seasons & the mere idea that he's Gibbs's conscience is mind-boggling.

@ annsan

Franks as the 'devil' on Gibbs shoulder could be believable, but Franks never showed Gibbs the "path of right" when he was alive, why on earth should Gibbs subconcious turn him into that now he is dead.
Everything that we were shown of Gibbs and his morality would have put Shannon as his conscience, not Franks.

Oh, I'm so ready for the angels (although I suspect they'll be taking him south) take Franks to final resting place. I would love to see Gibbs go to Tony or Ducky when he is in need of help. Knowing that Franks is going to be featured yet again in the premier makes me not want to watch it. The mere thought of all the dysfunction and hand wringing among the team members because of the latest Gibbs drama is really not something that I'm looking forward to either. I may just skip the premier. We know that super Gibbs will still be in the center of every story and the eye of every storm by episode 2 anyway.

Then I'm in the minority also. Franks needs to get dead permanently. And as I read somewhere, "Run to the light Mike, run!"
