CBS' PERSON OF INTEREST is the Season's Fastest-Growing Show on Network TV

Related: PERSON OF INTEREST, CBS

PERSON OF INTEREST is the fastest-growing show on network television, according to Nielsen most current ratings through Dec. 2.

The second-year drama has added +3.63 million viewers (17.26m from 13.63m), a +27% increase from last season. Among adults 18-49, PERSON OF INTEREST is up +0.5 (3.8 from 3.5), making it the fastest-growing drama on network television.

PERSON OF INTEREST ranks as television's #5 series overall and third-highest-rated drama (behind only CBS's NCIS and NCIS: LOS ANGELES), outdelivering every scripted program on every other network.

PERSON OF INTEREST stars Jim Caviezel, Emmy Award winner Michael Emerson and Academy and Emmy Award-nominated Taraji P. Henson in a crime thriller about a presumed-dead former CIA agent who teams up with a mysterious billionaire to prevent violent crimes by using their own brand of vigilante justice.  Reese's special training in covert operations appeals to Finch, a software genius who invented a program, aka “The Machine,” that can identify people about to be involved in violent crimes. Tapping into ubiquitous surveillance feeds throughout the city, the two work outside of the law, combining Reese's black ops skills with Finch's technological prowess and unlimited wealth to unravel the mystery of the person of interest, and stop the crime before it happens. Reese’s actions draw the attention of the NYPD, including by-the-book homicide detective Carter.  After initially pursuing Reese as a criminal, Carter now shares in his pursuit of justice.  Also working with Reese and Finch is Detective Fusco, a dirty cop who began as Reese’s unwilling pawn, but now views their missions as a chance at personal redemption.  With infinite crimes to investigate, Reese and Finch find that the right person, with the right information, at the right time, can change everything.
