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 CIS New York…can’t believe it’s off the air. I agree with all the viewers, this is one of the best show on TV and makes my Friday night even better. Please bring the show back. All the characters are fantastic, especially Gary Senise, who has my heart since Forest Gump.

    Please don’t cancel csi ny. I loved csi Miami and also love csi ny and I don’t want to see another one of my favorites cancelled!!!

    Leave it on the Air. CSI NY is on e of the best shows on TV. They should take off the reality shows like Shark Tank, or Vegas these shows are not worth watching, they are stupid. They took off CSI Miami. That was a good show. The good or great shows they take off and leave the stupid shows on TV. another show they should take off is the Mentalist.

    Leave it on the air. I think it is the best show on the air right now. Get rid of the reality shows. Like the race, shows like this have no interest birng on TV. They took CSI Miami.
    That was a good show. They put Vegas on friday Nights that show as no content woth watching. Another show that is stupid is Shark tank.

    Please do not cancel csi new York. It is one of the best shows on tv. Its getting very hard for our older generation to find something to watch. Why producers think we want to watch stupid reality shows that show nothing but sex and curse words and literally have no plot or story is the question of the year. I can’t tell you how many reruns of ncis, and csi new York we watch. We really liked csi las Vegas until you ruined it with nonsense and very bloody, gory scenes. We need shows like csi ny and roll models like Gary Sinese

    I hope they bring it back…the show improved with Sela Ward. That Stella was obnoxious and I was happy when she left.

    I agree with ann
    I don’t feel CSI;NY should be canceled. I am not happy about it when other crappy shows are on like Two and A Half Men basically due to the content of the show. I no longer watch that or Two Broke Girls. The shows that are being produced have no content worth watching. When you cancel a show I REALLY LIKE I start watching another channel because most of your new shows are lame

    I don’t feel it should be canceled. I loved coming home & getting ready to sit down for the evening & settling down to watch CSI with David Senise. I think he is awesome. All the characters were terrific. I’m sorry that I missed the last episode before the plug was pulled. I am not happy about it when other crappy shows are on like Two and A Half Men basically due to the content of the show. I no longer watch that or Two Broke Girls. The shows that are being produced have no content worth watching.

    Please bring back CSI – New York

    Thank you!

    Please don’t cancel. The producers always cancel the best shows. For example Cold Case was canceled and one of the best shows on. TV but it was also canceled. And there has been alot of great shows that have been canceled

      Sela Ward is one of my favorites. I like her better than the last one that played the part. A lot better.

      Leave it on! The 18-49all demographic aren’t the only ones who matter! 50+ viewers also buy the sponsors products and this is a great show.
