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?

    Love all the CSI’s! Miss Miami – wish we knew what happened there but anyway please don’t get rid of CSI NY! It was doing good til you moved it to Friday. Hello – Friday night football games in the fall… Date nights… of course shows don’t do well on Friday nights.

    CSI NY is the best show on television. I love the cast, (especially Gary Sinise) and I have waited for Mac to be happy for a long time, I want to see a Mac and Christine wedding. I don’t care that Sheldon won’t be back…he was never my favorite anyway…but I love Jo, want to see Sid beat cancer, want to see Danny and Lindsey have their baby and Adam be happy with his new girl. I hope CBS is listening…I haven’t watched Friday nights since the season finale!

    I really hope CSI: NY is not cancelled! There are so many story lines to do still. I love this show on Friday nights and I am getting sick of shows like this being let go for so called “reality” shows that are just trash!

    I hope they don’t cancel CSI NY, sick of everything being replaced with reality shows. My household just about to get rid of TV all together because of nothing on but the reality shows, or being replaced with crappy one season trials….All the good shows are going away. :(

    Can you at least let the show go out on it’s own terms? I sick and tired of networks canceling shows without some kind of proper ending. Also if I see one more so called “reality show” replacing any show because ratings are lower due to being on several years, I will not be watching that network anymore.

    I really hope a new season will be made. I’m from Europe, and I believe NY has more appeal to people living here than Vegas.

    There is so much more that can be done with CSI NY; the crossovers were great, but I would love to see a case where Mac’s team gets involved with the New Orleans team so Mac and Stella can team up once more. Next to that I just want to see Sid beat his cancer, his friendship with Jo is great in the series :).

    I’m 25 years old now, been watching CSI NY since the first episode and I really feel that I grew up with Mac and his team. So please, don’t cancel it! The series has it’s bad moments, but Seasons 8 and 9 have been wonderful, and if the series continues like this I would love to see it go on for a few more seasons!

    I looked forward to relaxing on Friday nights and watching CSI NY. It is one of my favorite shows. I hope you don’t cancel it.

    Please do not cancel CSI-New York. It is my favorite show on T. V. I’m tired of so many well-written shows being cancelled and being replaced with the “reality shows”. I watch TV to be entertained. If I want reality, I will watch the news. CBS has better offerings than the other networks, but if you continue to cancel the better shows, such as CSI-NY, you will no longer be on top. Please listen to the fans. Keep CSI-NY for another season. If you must cancel something, cancel some of the sitcoms that are insulting to ones intelligence.
