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?

CSI Miami was one of the best shows CBS ever had. It is THEIR loss. I pray another network picks the ball up and runs with it. Horatio will never die.

The reason for low ratings is, because you or whoever kept moving the show around at different times, different days and I never knew when it was on. First it was Monday nights then Sunday nights then Saturday nights. Its a wonder. I don’t see the other shows being moved around like that. If you cancel and don’t bring this show back, you should cancel LV next, because there is no sense to half the shows. Different actors throws off the whole show. New York should be kept. The Miami show is being rerun. The same shows week after week, like there are no other seasons to run. Just jBring it back on.

Why would you cancel this show with the way you ended season 10 tours just rude to all the csi fans that love the shows. Now all of us still get to sit here wonder if natalia would have drowned or if she would’ve been saved thanks so much cbs maybe you should cancel some of the dumb new shows you have put up and leave the good ones there!

Any website you start the search whit csi it auto comes miami many people will be crushed because of the mistake cbs have done. I got a question for the cbs. Why did you shows to put down csi miami? Why not other series? Maybe because csi miami is not on the screen any more many people would stop watching other series and movies from cbs

CSI: Miami in my option and students at the University of the West Indies is one of the most electrifying cop series you can find, having its own unique style and flavour. Cancelling a series of that nature was not the best call and I personally would love to see it be placed back on the air.

What I would like to know is how they could end season ten with Calleigh adopting two children, and leaving it at that? The last episode left the entire series open to so much possibility; just take a look at the damage Sam caused Ryan. There could be some amazing emotional plot lines twisted around that one character. I can understand that interest might have begun to fizzle out, but they didn’t have the emotion that was charged in the final episodes of season ten. I feel that it’s premature to cancel season 11 now.


Dafinka December 26, 2012 at 12:05 am
