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 should have been renewed. Profit isn’t everything! Fans consist of the older generation as well and there really isn’t a great deal left that is “fit” to watch. The show and the fans deserve a good close. No one should be left hanging without closure. It has been a part of the fans weekly life for a lot of years.

Why would you end it right when its getting so interesting, calliegh is about to adopt kids, i mean we all want to know how thats gonna end, and if her and eric will hook up or if she’ll marry and have children. Please keep the show going or if you really want to end it, end it where theres really nothing more that can happen. For example everyones married, or their all happy and calleigh has settled down with somebody or something like that. Dont do this to your fans follow through with the show and end it good, dont maje us curious at whats going to happen.

Csi Miami is the only one I will watch. I do not care how much it costs to produce the other piece of crap. I will not watch it because the writer and comes up short on everything. This show is way up there with the original NCIS! The Spin- off actually sucks. I haven’t even watched it even to remember the name of it. There’s more picture snapping than show on the stupid thing. Any way Csi was tossed was tossed in the trash by me years ago years ago when the Cast was not plotted correctly. Soaps are not welcome on a crime show! Turning our favorite Stars into theirs and gamblers is a no go! Affairs with fathers and daughters? Really, if you could name it, it happened on this show. Then you give us a true cop with all the right moves and attude. A team as close as a family can be, and you want to take that away? That really is not fair. Lose the awful CSI and let us keep the best one! Thanks a bunch, Donnalou
