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?

    You have got to be kidding me! Who watches CSI: NY? CSI: Miami is golden! There was no closesure, there wasn’t an overall ending to their, what should be 11 seasons. The 10th season was left in blank. Voluge wasn’t stopped, they never showed what happened to him after the car accident, they can’t leave the last episode without Calleigh with them around the table. It is not too late to bring it back, please bring it back. Esteban was released from jail is that not enough to bring the show back? The last episode with Memmo he talked about forgiveness, are you kidding me? So much can bring this show back for one last true season. One that the fans will be expecting and deserve. It’s not too late, please bring back my favorite TV show for years, it is far too well of a show to be left in the dust like that. Please don’t do this to one of the best CSI franchise.

    There are too many questions left for there not to be a season 11. It has enough information to continue. especially what happens with Calleigh and her kids?

    That is ridiculous. Bring the show back. Love CSI Miami. Absolutely ridiculous idea not to renew it. Unbelievable. Too disappointed to continue.

      I agree with all of you people about bringing back Horation and the CSI Miami back. I don’t appreciate you leaving us all hanging at the end of the season 11 of 2013. I don’t know who survived. I also miss CSI NY don’t know what happens with Gary Senise, Please bring them back! We all enjoy them, they are all very good actors.
