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?

    Please do not cancel CSI New York. I don’t understand why the network moved it to Fridays they should put it on Mondays or Tuesdays or Wednesday’s. I love all the CSI’S.
    I miss CSI Miami. Please bring it back.

    if a CSI must be cancelled then please make it the Miami one, I love watching NY and LV CSI’s and those are the ones that if i miss a night i’ll watch from Demand. Both shows are great from plots to actors. Please don’t cancel it yet.

    I have to agree that reality shows, golden boys and Las Vegas are horrible shows. CSI:NY is the best show to watch. I love that show. Please come back!!

    I absolutely love CSI NY and Blue Bloods. Get rid of Vegas and Golden boy. They are both horrible and have no right being on TV. Also get rid of all the reality shows and put some good TV like CSI NY and Blue Bloods on at a good time. Stop shoving crap down our throats.

    CSI New York and Blue Bloods on Friday nights was a good combination.
    I miss this line up and do not watch VEGAS!

    CSI is a good show and the addition os Sela Ward made it even better.

    If one has to be cancelled then let it be CSI Criminal Intent
