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?

    CSI:NY is the best CSI of all. True, it’s been a long time but it doesn’t matter if the show is terrific! Solve Mac’s situation and give more background stories to the other cast members. It’s not only Mac. What about Adam or Sid? There are a lot of untold stories ready to be unraveled! Please, do not cancel this show!
    Thank you.

    Don’t cancel the show. It has a great plot and a great cast, it is much better than csi : Miami, and honestly all the new reality shows pale in comparison

    Please don’t cancel this show, CBS!!!! Let’s face it, you aren’t going to do better. We’ve stuck it out for 9 seasons…you owe us a 10th, plain and simple!!! By the way, enough with all of the ridiculous “reality” tv. Some of us have brains and we like shows that are intelligently written and shows with substance. Keep CSI: NY!

    Please renew this show for a 10th season. It would be such a mistake to not keep it going. You will lose money, and it is important for the spinoffs to continue for the franchises sake. Just look at Law & Order. They neglected it, and once SVU is off the air, the Law&Order franchise is officially dead. Do not let that happen to CSI. CSI-NY should not only be continued for season 10(&11, 12, 13…) but they should also attempt to launch a couple more shows to the franchise, after losing Miami and the other shows aging out.
    My personally vote would be for renewing CSI (which it has), renewing CSI-NY (which is looking like a coin toss), and also add for development for the upcoming season–“CSI: Chicago”!

    CSI NY should definitely stay on the air. CSI NY, Blue Bloods, Criminal Minds and Person of Interest are my favorites. However, just a note to CBS — you should show more of Frank Reagan (Tome Selleck) versus Danny Reagan (Donnie Walhberg).

    I prefer csi ny to stay on the show is wonderful. Let us keep csi ny, i prefer it over miami anyday. Listen to the fans

    kill it, they’ve had a good run, all made millions and many millions more from global franchise syndication dvd sales online sales etc…

    Look people, this last season was SO DAMN GOOD, go out on a high note, and move onto something new.

    I look at it this way, for 10 years Mac Taylor’s story was told, and he came full circle to be back where he was before 911, and is now moving on with Christine…

    So, CBS, let it go, and bring back Jericho (preferably without any 11 week breaks in the middle of season 1)

  11. Debbie says

    please don’t cancel CSI NY what are you people thinking, To drop another good show for a reality show which makes me run not walk to another T.V. station, thank you much

  12. Bonnie and Rex says

    Keep it going.. I think it was a miss to cancel CSI Miami and it would be truly sad to see this one go as well… Please keep it on for our sakes..
