CSI: NY: Has the CBS TV Series Been Cancelled?

CSI NY canceled?We’ve received several emails from readers who love CSI: NY and are worried that it’s been cancelled. Will the show ever return? The simple answer is, “Yes, it’s on hiatus until March 30th.” But, while the TV series hasn’t been canned yet, Gary Sinise and company could certainly be in their final season.

It’s no secret that the ratings have declined over the years and that’s probably one of the reasons that CBS moved it to a Friday night timeslot. It still brings in a respectable 10 million viewers each week but is one of the network’s worst performer in the prized 18-49 demographic, even when you adjust for the Friday timeslot. Year-to-year, the show is also down by 7% in the demo.

At the recent TCA press tour, CBS entertainment president Nina Tassler noted that, though she loves the CSI shows, “Nothing runs forever. How you handle it, the most important thing is how you respect your audience, how you respect your cast, and being incredibly sensitive to how you wrap up any show when it ends a successful run. But we are in those talking stages now (about how to end the CSIs).”

TV show supportIt’s unlikely that CBS will end all three CSI series this year but they could certainly drop one or two of them. Based on the ratings, the New York version would be first in line to be cancelled.

What do you think? Is this the last season of CSI: NY? Should the series be cancelled or renewed for one more season?

    DEAR CSINY

    I THINK CSINY IS BEING CANCELLED BECAUSE THEY BROUGHT IN MEGAN DOB BS AS A LOVE INTEREST AND PERSONALLY THE FANS DONT LIKE HER AND I ALSO THINK THAT SELA WARD IS THE BEST THING FOR CSINY AND SHE SHOULD END UP WITH GARY SINESE ON FEBRUAR22ND 2013. I THINK THAT NATALIE MARTINEZ AND EDDIE CAHILL SHOULD GET TOGETHER AND PRESONALLY DANNY AND LINDSEY WAS ANOTHER BIG MISTAKE FOR CSINY. THE BIGGEST MISTAKE WAS HIRING MELINA BECAUSE THEY THOUGHT MAC AND STELLA LOOKED GREAT TOGETHER. THE WORST MISTAKE WILL BE IF PEYTON AND MAC DONT FINALLY END UP TOGETHER ON CSINY. THE WORST SEASON FINALE FOR SEASON9 WILL BE MAC MARRYING THE WORST LOVE INTEREST ON CSINY.

    CSI N.Y. is one of the best shows on TV and to cancel it would be business suicide for CBS!! Think twice before doing this! This show has a lot of fans and Gary Senise is great . Only one thing they need to do is turn down the volume on the music while actors are talking!! Otherwise it is one of the few I watch anymore!

    If CBS takes off CSI New York they are the stupidest network on TV!! I won’t watch that network ever again unless they wise up and show programs that people like instead of this garbage that has started to show up on all channels. Is CBS going to start showing the dumb stuff like ABC does!! Give decent people a break and keep good shows on the air or your sponsors will drop you!!!!! You all are letting the government tell you what to air and that will be the death of decent TV viewing!!

    DEAR CBS

    I THINK THAT CSINY SHOULD BE CANCEL FOR SEASON9 NOT BECAUSE OF POOR RATING BUT BECAUSE THE WRITERS HAVE HAD STUPID STORYLINES NOT LIKE THE ONES ON CSIMIAMI. I THINK CSIMIAM IS BETTER THEN CSI OR CSINY. I ALSO FEEL ADDING MEGAND DOBBS TO SEASON8 AND9 MADE ME WUIT WATCHING CSINY. I THINK THE NEXT SHOW TO GO IS VEGAS BUT IF NOT MENTALIST.

    Please do not cancel CSI:NY. It’s one of my favorite TV shows and there aren’t so many shows that Icare to watch nowadays.
    Thanks!

      The music that drowns out the dialogue and causes the actors to not talk is soooo distracting I will not watch this CSI again the music in all scenes is unneeded nor appreciated are the writers so unsure of what they have written that they need to cover it up with LOUD music?

    Please keep the CSIs. I agree with the others, too. I have always enjoyed all the CSIs. Grissom in the original CSI used to be my favorite character, and I have grown to be fond of the character, Mac Taylor, in CSI: NY. All actors have portrayed the characters well and made the shows enjoyable. I salute the writers, too. The reality shows won’t last. I, for one, have grown tired of them and do not watch any one of them any more. Like Mary, I also know that youngsters got more interested in science and maths from watching CSIs. There are too few good TV shows these days.

    I agree with everyone else, I hate reality shows, thy interupt shows that should be coming on and they don’t show all of the show that should be on and I’m one of those sr. citizens that don’t like change and as I said reality shows that are so stupid.
