    It doesn’t feel like the audience that drives streaming subscription revenue is the same audience that watches NCIS on CBS. I’m guessing Paramount is basing this decision on streaming numbers of other NCIS properties on their channel?

      I feel like you’re right on that. Is anyone going to sub to Paramount+ for a spinoff of NCIS?

      Wonder if this is more to try and make them a better merger target?

      But see, they have to make all the money, so they’re gonna try to force that demographic onto the platform with what I can only assume they think is a show that will push them to subscribe. Or at least, they have to say they tried to convert that audience to subscribers and when it doesn’t work, fire everyone except the people responsible for the decision making and write off the losses.

      You would be surprised, the huge chunk of subscribers are boomers, who watch shows like this ad nauseum on repeat.

      Gibbs is no longer on the show. I believe he is still behind the scenes but he hasn’t been on screen for a few years now.

        The only original member left’s McGee. I stopped watching once “Bingo Bob” took over the team, so he might have left too.

          That depends on how you define original. Ducky’s helper is now the main guy and has been on the show since the early days.

      I watched the first few seasons and its not too bad, but they have a bunch of spinoffs already. I think ncis hawaii just started in the last year or two.
