Following Pauley Perrette’s exit on the show, the ratings of NCIS dropped 25 percent of its viewership. CBS might have to think of some ways to boost the ratings.


A quarter of a hundred percent of the show’s viewers boycotted the episode after Perrette’s final episode, according to TV ratings released on May 15th.

TV Line shared that the second to the last episode of season 15 only had 12.5 million viewers. NCIS had almost 15 million viewers when they aired the final episode that featured Perrette.

Despite the significant decrease in ratings, NCIS still stood firmly at the top, beating Roseanne with only 10.6 million viewers, as well as NCIS: New Orleans’ two hour-finale episode which only had 9.5 million fans tuning in.


Perrette was among the original cast of NCIS. She played Abigail “Abby” Sciuto, a forensic scientist. It would come as no surprise that many fans would make efforts to watch her final episode since she has been on the show for so long.

Before the episode aired, Perrette’s fans showed their support on social media. Even her co-star, Wilmer Valderrama, shared a heartfelt post in her honor.

with the caption, ‘Dear Pauley, you were a light and made me feel like family from the first day and every day for the last two years.'

A lot of Perrette’s fans retweeted Valderrama’s post and offered their sentiments through their replies.

One fan named Sarah wrote, ‘I'm going to be so sad!! It's hard to imagine #NCIS without her! You all work so well together and I've been sad ever since she announced that she was leaving! I wish her all the best! We'll miss you and thank you for 15 years of Abby!’

As for Perrette, she tweeted to thank CBS for everything they have done for her and for always being by her side.
