CSI: NY: CBS TV Show Renewed for Season Eight

CSI: NY renewed season eightFans of CSI: New York can rest easy. The Friday night series was looking like it might be cancelled but has now been renewed for an eighth season.

Starring Gary Sinise, CSI: NY investigations follows the investigations of a team of forensic scientists and police officers in the Big Apple. It began in the fall of 2004 and currently co-stars AJ Buckley, Anna Belknap, Carmine Giovinazzo, Eddie Cahill, Hill Harper, Robert Joy, and Sela Ward.

CBS moved CSI: NY to Friday nights this season, leading many to believe that it was on its way out. The ratings have declined over the years and naturally took a big hit when it was moved. Still, the show has performed better than most other shows of the night and currently averages a 1.8 in the 18-49 demographic and more than 10 million viewers.

According to Deadline, the decision to renew came right down to the wire. Contributing factors that pushed it over the edge include the fact that the show has a profitable syndication deal and also does quite well in international sales.

Though the TV series will be back for an eighth season, it’s not decided how many episodes will be ordered. Unlike the others, it may end up being a 13 episodes season.

What do you think? Are you glad to hear that CSI: NY will return for season eight?

    I’ve watched it since the 1st episode and will continue until it is gone just like all the CSI shows including NCIS. I hope Mac goes off the show with gray hair.

    I love CSI New York. I had wondered what happen to CSI New York now that I know that they will be renewed, I will certainly be tooned in. CSI should have never been moved to Friday nights, everyone know that people are not at home on Friday nights. CBS please do not try this stunt again.

    We were so upset when the show just ended one Friday night. We have always looked forward to the show, if any of the shows should be canceled then cancel the one on Wed. nights. So many of the regular stars have changed and we have lost interest in it because of that. Keep CSI NY on, put it in the Wed. night time slot.

    Im shocked to see that CSI-NEW YORK was almost cancelled. It was one of my favorite shows. But now i’m glad to see that it’s returning for the 8th season. I believe that Gary Sinise was a better “leader” than the guy from CSI-MIAMI.
