Wow! Series In Its Eighth Season Drew Its Largest Audience Ever on Tuesday Night, Jan. 11, 2011 Deadline.com

This is pretty amazing--a show in its eighth season drew its largest audience ever on Jan. 11, 2011, Deadline.com reports.

It's CBS phenom "NCIS."

According to the article, "CBS' NCIS last night posted a series high in total viewers: 22 million. The veteran procedural was the top program on the night by a mile in viewers and adults 18-49 (4.5/12), leading CBS to an easy nightly victory and solid ratings gains from the Tuesday lineup's last originals on Dec. 14."

Not bad for a series that started as a spinoff of a show--"JAG"--that NBC had rejected after its second season...
