NCIS season 15, The Flash season 4 ratings fall — why now?

NCISThe latest NCIS season 15 and The Flash season 4 ratings are in — but unfortunately, they are probably going to disappoint some people out there.

Let’s begin for a moment with NCIS season 15, given that this past episode of the series ended up generating a 1.2 rating in the 18-49 demographic coupled with 12.3 million viewers overall. Why is the show sagging at this point? It’s been on this trajectory for a while now, as are many shows that are on TV. The cast turnover hurt the show, and the same also goes for what is a very different television climate now. This is not 2010 anymore when streaming services where less common and there were fewer people with DVRs. There are just less incentives to watch television live and, as a result of that, CBS has to figure out some other ways to plan around some of the viewership pools.

The good news for Bull here is mostly that this show drew most of its lead-ins audience at around a 1.1 rating.

For The Flash season 4, the situation is a little bit different since we’re writing here about a series that is actually rather popular, but there’s very little incentive to watch it live if you can just do that on Netflix down the line. So long as you can avoid spoilers, it’s the perfect show to binge-watch — especially with this season.

As for elsewhere on the night, This Is Us still won the night with a 2.7 rating while Chicago Med after it held on to almost all of its previous audience with a 1.4. Basically, that show has furthered its odds of renewal quite likely. All of the shows mentioned within this piece are all likely to come back for more episodes; we just like pointing out some of these numbers for the sake of trends.
