CBS Renews NCIS for Season 11 America F*CK YEAH!

This may come as a shock, but CBS has renewed NCIS for an eleventh season. The announcement came after the network locked up star Mark Harmon for another season.

"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."

(Sorry, I had to include that quote from the press release because it's so awesome.)

NCIS is averaging 21.48 million viewers per episode, or roughly 18.36 million more viewers than Do No Harm pulled in last night for its series premiere. NCIS is also earning a 4.2 rating among the 18-49 age demo and is a huge hit overseas, which is a good thing because now those countries know to fear us. Look at us the wrong way, and we'll sic Mark Harmon on your ass. Not the Summer School one, either.

    I love NCIS and NCIS: Los Angeles. I would hate to see them canceled like CSI:NY!!!! What is going through the networks minds to cancel such popular shows? I love all the CSI shows, even the canceled CSI:Miami which I miss but don't cancel anymore of my shows please!!!!

    Fantastic! Mark Harmon is the glue that truly makes the show work. I watch or tape it every Tuesday night and look forward to every episode. Mark Harmon's character "Gibbs" is my favorite. I agree - NCIS is Unbeatable!

    YES, YES, YES.... Mark Harmon is the Best - and with his Team - NCIS is Unbeatable!!

    The AD this week said FINAL 3 episodes - are we SURE it has been renewed??? This is my #1 don't miss show! - My ONLY problem is that Tony and Ziva haven't gotten together yet - the series would work just fine with them together - if the writers are good - they find a way to make it work! Hope CBS is listening or they will be starting down the NBC road to nowhere!

    Good I started watching NCIS late in the game because I loved JAG and was mad when NCIS took its timeslot and JAG got moved to the timeslot of death aka friday nights. With the NCIS channel always playing episodes I caught up on all the seasons and storylines. I love Mark Harmon and that is what keeps me watching.
