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 show on TV .. the cast is terrific–Gary Sinese and Sela Ward are actors and you’re lucky to have them on this show. They make it realistic and their characters draw us into the show and entertain us leaving us wanting more. Please don’t cancel this series … it’s simply the best CSI!!

I love CSI NY, NCIS,Mentalist and Goodwife, they are my favorite shows on CBS< They are the only ones I care for, except maybe for Mike and Molly, We do not care for two broke girls or two and a half men, they are way to vulgar for the 60 and up braket

csi ny has allot more drama to it that csi lv and it has a minimal of 3 open storrylines to tell and the character take you with them to get to know them thats wath makes csi ny the best.

just renew it CBS period

CSI NY and CSI Miami were great shows and fun to watch. You took CSI Miami off with no warning. Please do not do that to this one.
