Looper polled “NCIS” fans across the United States to find out which character they considered the least likeable of all. Of the 618 participants polled, 24.43% agreed that Anthony DiNozzo Jr. (Michael Weatherly) is the worst. On the other hand, some viewers believe Tony has aged poorly on “NCIS,” so as surprising as the poll result might be to some long-time viewers, he’s been in people’s bad books for a very long time.
Timothy McGee (Sean Murray) trailed DiNozzo with 19.90% of the vote, while Ducky (David McCallum) and Ziva David (Cote de Pablo) took 18.61% and 14.24%, respectively. 12.30% rank Leroy Jethro Gibbs as the least likeable character, but it’s possible that some of those voters are still angry following Mark Harmon’s departure from “NCIS” in 2021. To date, Gibbs is arguably the character most synonymous with the franchise.
Surprisingly, Abby (Pauley Perrette) only received 10.52% of the vote, effectively making her the most popular character among respondents. This might be the most shocking and strange revelation of the results. As Cheatsheet noted, Abby was once considered the worst main character in “NCIS” history, but time seems to have been kind to the forensic scientist.
