Loyal viewers were left surprised to see CBS wasn’t airing new episodes of NCIS or its most recent spin-off NCIS Hawaii. As a result, the fans express their frustration about the scheduling shake-up on Twitter.

One of the many fans disappointed with the series’ unexpected shift tweeted: “No new episode of NCIS Hawaii episode today,” alongside a crying emoji.

As well as the newest spinoff based in Hawaii, CBS also didn’t air the latest instalment of NCIS this week. Instead, the upcoming sixth episode will air on Monday, November 1.

Alternatively, the network decided to air a repeat, titled 1mm, which first premiered in January.

This was the same for NCIS Hawaii with the next show scheduled to air after NCIS on Monday.

Alanna was also frustrated with the network’s decision and wrote: “It looks like #TheNCISs are repeats next week #NCIS #NCISHawaii.”

NCIS Hawaii, which first debuted in September has a much smaller pool of episodes to repeat, compared to NCIS which is in its 19th season.

Although CBS had the rest of the series to air, they instead chose to repeat the show’s second episode titled Boom.

Another viewer was taken by surprise as they tweeted: “WAIT NO NEW NCIS HAWAI’I TONIGHT?”

Anntoinette shared: “Well I’m disappointed I was looking forward to tonight’s episode.”

Many NCIS fans tuned in to see McGee (played by Sean Murray) confronted about Gibbs’ (Mark Harmon) departure from his role.

Instead, they were transported back to a time when Gibbs was still leading his unassuming team, unaware the special agent would soon leave.

According to cartermatt.com, the reason behind CBS scheduling shakeup was down to ratings.

The site continued: “These two shows are probably going to air together the remainder of the season, with the big reason for that being that it helps the ratings.”

“Also, you want to have episodes in the key November sweeps ratings periods,” they added.

However, it’s not all bad news, as other viewers were able to find a silver lining in the delays.

One fan tweeted: “This episode not being aired today kinda is good, cause it means I’ll be able to watch it live at 4 am with everyone tweeting and going since it’s my vacation week.”

With NCIS Hawaii only five episodes into the first season, fans have been able to get a taste of the team being led by a woman for the first time ever.

Vanessa Lachey plays Jane Tennant – the Special Agent in Charge of the NCIS Pearl Harbor field office.

The upcoming latest episode will see Jane and her team aim to find a missing social media star who has a secret life her husband and fans do not know about.

This will follow a new episode on NCIS titled False Start, which will see the team investigate the mysterious death of a Navy commander who trained top athletes.

Thankfully, both shows will return to regular scheduling on Monday, November 1.
