On the digital front, NCIS is one of the most-watched primetime series across CBS' digital platforms, including CBS All Access and in the Electronic Sell Through (EST) market. The series also continues to be a powerhouse in the global market, licensed in more than 200 territories. In syndication, previous season episodes of NCIS are cable television's most-watched off-network drama, out-delivering the next closest competitor by +27%. NCIS is also cable's second-most-watched off-net series, behind only THE BIG BANG THEORY. NCIS premiered on CBS in 2003.
