CSI: NY: Cancelled or Renewed for Season 10?

CSI NY cancel or renew?Here we go again. Tonight, CBS airs the ninth season finale of CSI: NY. Will the long-running show be cancelled so that it ends up also being the series finale as well?

As with any show, the network has to look at the costs to produce CSI: NY versus the revenue it generates. CSI: NY has been on the air for nearly 200 episodes and so the costs have risen over the years. Unfortunately, the ratings haven’t gone up as well.

In season seven, CSI: NY averaged a 1.8 rating in the 18-49 demographic with 10.03 million total viewers. Last season, the show averaged a 1.6 demo rating with 9.94 million. This year, it’s averaged a 1.4 rating with 9.68 million viewers.

Is it worthwhile for the network to keep producing more episodes or should they try something new? They haven’t had any luck launching new dramas on Friday nights — Made in Jersey and A Gifted Man, for example — so trying to replace CSI: NY might be a tricky proposition.

As Gary Sinise recently told Larry King regarding the ninth season renewal, “It was a 50-50 toss-up. We have a good solid show but I know from a business perspective what they’re thinking about, looking at. Has our show run its course? Can they find a new show that’s cheaper to make than ours that can do as well? They have to take a lot into account but we’re a solid show.”

If CSI: NY does return it will be without one castmember. Hill Harper, who’s played Sheldon Hawkes since the show began, is leaving. He’s becoming a series regular on USA’s Covert Affairs drama starting with season four.

What do you think? Has CSI: NY run its course? Should CBS cancel it and replace it with an existing drama or something new? Would you like to see it come back for a 10th year?

    I think since Melinda left ( sorry Selena) the show has gone down. I love NY and the original caraters. Try bringing Melinda back. If Hill goes than I guess it has to be. Maybe bring Melinda back to replace Hill. Just a thought. I believe u should give them a Chance

    I refuse to watch those reality or game shows. We are stuck with watching reruns of CSI-NY and CSI-Miami as they were some of the best shows on television. I really liked Gary Sinese

    I pray there is a season 10,11,12. CSI N.Y. BEST SHOW ON TV. The fans want more to see Mac get married and have a child. We need to see danny and lindseys new baby and the other characters have not reached their potential

      I agree with you. Please bring it back. I thought it was very interesting. We don’t ever watch reality or game shows nor talk shows. BORING!!!

    I don’t see anything valuable with the reality shows, they discuss me mostly. I don’t see their value what so ever. All the shows my husband and I watch are full hour shows. It’s getting so that we go to the movies a lot not because of all the stupid reality stuff. They are quite sickening to us both. But, it’s getting to be that all they want to put on is stupid reality shows or very stupid, very silly half hour ****, pardon my French. Thank God for xfinity where you can watch old 1 hour shows or good movies if you should happen to miss them when they were out the first time around. Although you can’t watch CSI: N.Y. on it, Criminill Minds, etc. If it’s at all possible I would love to see CSI: N.Y. come back. I love Gary Sinese too very much. Please try to bring it back it’s a terrific show.

    I always enjoyed CSI New York. I was disappointed when I read that it was going to be cancelled. I always said that television execs are out of touch with the viewing audience. Just because some folks tune into those stupid reality shows doesn’t mean everyone does. Some of us only have over the air television, but those tv execs seem to think we all have cable. I hope CSI New York returns.
