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?

Bring back csi Miami loved the show and the cast. Why take off a good show and replace with something stupid. After 10 seasons you would figure it would be worth keeping doing more seasons.


Fred April 18, 2013 at 3:14 pm

Jason weber April 14, 2013 at 6:57 pm

that is ridiculous there should be one more season to end it right I watch all the csi shows it makes me sad y’all would end that show and air some of these other shows that aren’t even worth a crap


Beth Martin April 15, 2013 at 6:33 pm

I, along with many other co-workers and friends, am beyond distraught that this show has cancelled. This needs to be reconsidered!!!!!


mike brown April 12, 2013 at 12:07 am

there have to be other shows that cbs have besides csi Miami to scrap why not look into them and leave csi Miami going you would be surprised you might be surprised on the ratings and fans that are out there

i think it is ridicoulous to end the series the way it had at least to a epilogue and let the cast go to to one of the other to spin offs i think cali would make a great addition to the ny team i have been a fan of this show for many years i watched the very first show in 2002 and the last one here recently its a wonderful program and needs to be continues


Vicky April 5, 2013 at 9:29 am
