The enduring CBS series “NCIS,” which premiered in 2003 and has spawned various spin-offs, maintains its popularity among viewers due to consistent performance. The show follows a team of agents solving crimes related to the U.S. Navy and Marine Corps, offering a blend of mystery, action, and a compelling character ensemble.

In a recent Looper poll, “NCIS” fans voted Anthony DiNozzo Jr. (Michael Weatherly) as the least likable character, with 24.43% of 618 respondents expressing their disapproval. This outcome may be surprising to long-time viewers, considering Tony has faced criticism over the years. Timothy McGee (Sean Murray) followed with 19.90%, while Ducky (David McCallum) and Ziva David (Cote de Pablo) received 18.61% and 14.24%, respectively.

Leroy Jethro Gibbs garnered 12.30% of the vote, although some viewers might still be upset about Mark Harmon’s departure in 2021. Despite once being considered the least liked, Abby (Pauley Perrette) received only 10.52% of the votes, indicating a positive shift in perception over time.
