LGBT ally Pauley Perrette’s high Q rating makes the “NCIS” cast member the most popular TV star
My 80-year-old dad, whose absolute favorite TV star is Pauley Perrette
of CBS’s NCIS
, will be very happy to hear this news.
According to the latest Q Ratings, a survey taken a few times a year to judge who are the most popular stars, based on audience awareness, she is the most popular actor in primetime right now.
Q ratings come in handy when networks want to gauge whether an actor is worth the time (and money) to cast and/or keep on the payroll.
Looks like Pauley has some job security. NCIS remains as popular as ever and Pauley is one of the reasons. She is much beloved by the LGBT community for her staunch support of equality and she gives her her time and energy to such events as AIDS Walk Los Angeles, LifeWorks Mentoring and GLSEN.
