The Media Chart is a weekly look at what's topping the rankings and the ratings.

Surprise! Leroy Jethro Gibbs is back near the top of the broadcast ratings. Second only to NFL football, CBS's "NCIS" is still the scripted show to beat. And it's followed by CBS properties "Bull" (starring former "NCIS" player Michael Weatherly) and "The Big Bang Theory." Then "The Voice," more "NCIS" and "60 Minutes." So, basically, more of the same this fall.
