NCIS: Naval Criminal Investigative Service

Trivia: The show originally premiered as "Navy: NCIS", and ran with that title for the first season. Beginning with season 2, the title was shortened to just "NCIS", after the producers convinced CBS (the network had insisted on the longer title) that "Navy: NCIS" was redundant, since the "N" in "NCIS" stands for "Naval".

Trivia: Since the two-part episode "Legend" is also technically part of NCIS: Los Angeles canon, it makes Gibbs, Tony, Abby, and Ducky the only characters who have appeared on the two NCIS shows and its parent series JAG. Abby is the only one who also appears in a stand-alone NCIS: LA episode.
