NCIS and THE BIG BANG THEORY are America's top two favorite current shows, according to a newly released Harris Poll of 2,232 U.S. adults who were surveyed online in English between Jan. 14 and Jan. 20, 2015.

"We all know that NCIS and THE BIG BANG THEORY are the top-rated scripted series, but this survey demonstrates that these shows clearly stand out as America's favorite choice in a growing television universe," said David Poltrack, Chief Research Officer, CBS Corporation, President, CBS Vision. "This level of viewer engagement is important because research has proven that engaged viewers are more receptive to and more responsive to advertising. The CBS primetime lineup accounted for far more 'favorite' mentions than that of any other network and contained more different programs chosen as viewer favorites, confirming the unique bond between this Network's programs and its audience."
