Ncis Draws 20 Million Viewers Entering Ninth Year
CBS's NCIS wasn't showing the slightest signs of faltering in its old age as Tuesday's episode attracted 20 million viewers. Against it, the series debut of ABC's cross-dressing comedy Work It didn't stand a chance. (Awful reviews didn't help either. Time magazine's James Poniewozik called it "the kind of bad dumb show you will use in years to come as a benchmark for other bad sitcoms.") It drew just 6.1 million viewers. ABC's Celebrity Wife Swap didn't do much better against the NCIS spinoff, NCIS Los Angeles, which drew 17.1 million viewers. Wife Swap wound up with 6 million viewers.
