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?

    So glad to hear that CSI-NY will return next season. All of the actors/show are very professional. Love that you can watch it & then watch “Bluebloods”, another class act.

    Uh… this article is two years old, published in May, 2011. But CBS should review this comment thread to understand how much people enjoy the show.

    I am really glad CSI-New York is being renewed for eighth season. It is on of my favorite shows along with Blue Bloods. I love the whole crew. Wish it would stay on. Don’t like the reality shows. They seem so fake and boring.

    CSI New York is a great show and far better than Vegas which has replaced it, where it’s in and out of bed. So glad it’s still going to be on. It’s by far more realistic than Vegas.

Please, if it is going to end can u pkeas not do it abruptly but help the fans get that sence of closure when you write a proper last show that wraps things up. Thanks a mill.
