Buzz In: What TV Show's Success Baffles You?

Buzz In: What TV Show's Success Baffles You?

Over the weekend, the New York Times ran a feature on CBS's NCIS, which has somehow become the most successful show on television. It's currently dominating two different nights (Tuesdays, when new episodes air, and Fridays, when it airs in repeats) and has also made a splash in reruns on cable.

This is all a little weird to me because — forgive me, NCIS fans — I've never really thought of the show as anything more than "CSI on a boat." To be TV's most-watched show, beating even the many CSIs? That seems crazy!

That got me thinking about TV shows that have risen to extreme popularity that you just don't get, no matter how hard you try. Are you baffled by your friends who arrange Thursdays around that sex-and-medicine show called Grey's Anatomy? Do you roll your eyes the second anyone says the words American Idol? Air your grievances below!
