CSI: Miami: Cancelled by CBS, No Season 11

canceled CSI MiamiAfter 10 seasons, it’s time for David Caruso to turn in his sunglasses. CBS has cancelled CSI: Miami, the first show in the CSI franchise to end.

Starting in 2002, the TV series follows a South Florida team of forensic investigators who often use advanced scientific methods to solve crimes. The current cast includes Caruso, Adam Rodriguez, Emily Procter, Eva La Rue, Jonathan Togo, Omar Benson Miller, and Rex Linn.

The ratings for CSI: Miami have declined over the years. Season nine averaged a 2.1 in the coveted 18-49 demographic with 9.85 million total viewers. That was down from season eight by 13% in the demo (vs a 2.4 rating) and down by 5% in viewership (vs 10.39 million).

While the cop show’s overall viewership is still impressive, advertisers want shows that cater to the demo audience and the network has many shows that attract big overall audiences.

Should CSI: NY have been cancelled instead?

What’s more, after 10 seasons on the air, CSI: Miami is no doubt very expensive to produce and there are already 232 episodes, more than enough to keep running in syndication for many years.

Nina Tassler, President of CBS Entertainment, suggested that one of the CSI shows might be cancelled this month. The original CSI was already renewed so it was a guessing game to see if Miami or NY would bite the bullet. CSI: NY has reportedly been renewed for season nine.

Of the cancellation news, CBS released the following statement:

CSI: Miami leaves an amazing television legacy – a signature look and style, global popularity and as a key player in CBS’s rise to the top over the past decade. We thank all the producers – led by Jerry Bruckheimer, Jonathan Littman and Ann Donahue — and its talented cast, led by David Caruso, for 10 outstanding seasons. Viewers around the world will continue to enjoy rebroadcasts of CSI: Miami in syndication and on key digital platforms for many years to come.

What do you think? Are you sorry to hear that CSI: Miami has been cancelled? Will you miss the show? Was it time for it end or would you have liked to have seen an 11th season?

Why would you leave off with an episode like that! It leaves us hanging and its bullshit! Noone wants to see lieutenant dan anymore! If we want to see him we will watch forest gump! The only reason ratings are down is cause ppl cant afford cable! We get groups at our house just to watch miami! Bring it back damn it!

I love CSI:Miami – I watch all the reruns now..Why would you cancel them? I Love it better than the others. Although LL Cool J is one my greats, David is the Carmel Haired Detective of Choice and his crew are on point. Please reconsider starting new seasons. Pick up right where they left off!

I’m only 20 years old, but I have been watching CSI for a very long time!!! Season ten left me with so many questions!!! You can’t end it like this! It’s horrible. This show is what I look forward to and now it’s ending. I’m devestated.

Why would you renew season nine for ny and csi miami is out rating both of the others put together? Is it cause the success of Miami you don’t want to pay David’s crew the extra money? That’s not right cancelling Miami. Reconsider please?
