NCIS is objectively one of the most popular shows on TV right now, if not of all time. And as a spinoff of JAG, it's one of the few spinoffs to outlive its predecessor (300 episodes and counting, compared to JAG's relatively scant 227). Where most shows' popularity drops off over time, that's just not true for NCIS. In its seventh season, it became the most-watched scripted show on broadcast television. In its tenth, it surpassed the two reality-based shows in front of it—Sunday Night Football and American Idol—to become the No. 1 show on network TV. It's never left the top three since. But as much as viewers love it, it hasn't won very many awards. Not surprisingly, the show has been nominated for more than a dozen People's Choice Awards; surprisingly, it's never won any of them. And at the Emmy Awards, NCIS has been nominated just three times: twice for stunt performers and once for Outstanding Guest Actor in a Drama Series (Charles Durning, for a 2005 episode). It didn't win any of those either.
