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 that CSI is a very good show. It shows a lot of what the new technology in crime fighting is all about. It is an honest and clean show. I think that people who watch the show and like it should be able to put in comments and if allowed try and boost the ratings. I hope the CSI NY stays on the air, because the shows that have been replacing it are lousy. Thanks for this chance to let me make some comments.

    Don’t cancel CSI NY. Put CSI NY and CSI back to back and watch the ratings pick up.
    Both shows are fantastic and realistic

    Oh boy! This is my 2nd time asking CBS to please not to cancel CSI NY! I requested last year for NY’s 9th season to continue. Please don’t cancel CSI NY!

    Don’t cancel this show! Out of all the CSI shows this one is by far the best one. Cast is better in any of the other shows. Definetely deserves at least a 10th season, characters are too good to throw away.

    Please do not cancel CSI-NY. Watched the show regularly and really liked it. Get rid of some (or all) the reality shows instead of the really good shows.

    Please do not cancel this show. It is awesome and cast deserves 10 seasons like CSI Miami. I hope it keeps going Selma has done a great job and we enjoy this show even more. Will Harper will be missed, but a new character always adds spice!

    I have watched CSI New York from the very first show. The show is more realistic than most drama shows on tv. Gary Sinese is great and so are the rest of the cast members. Please don’t cancel it. There is not much else on Friday nights that is worth watching..

    Please do not cancel CSI-NY. We really like the actors on this show and it is more realisitc that some of the others. With so many of the trash reality shows on TV now and some of the terrible sitcoms, if you take this show off and what few other good shows that are left like CSI Las Vegas, the new Vegas, Blue Bloods and I could name some others on different stations, there isn’t much to watch these days. Please do not take Gary Sinese off! He is one of the nicest, most talented actors and has a heart of gold. I know the writers can keep coming up with story lines. Cut some of the other crap that is on TV and keep these good shows!!! Thank you!

    When CSI Miami got cancelled we were very upset but we felt like we still had CSI NY to watch. Now, you are wanting to take them away. The actors of CSI NY are more realistic and understandable than all these dumb reality shows. Please don’t cancel CSI NY!!!
    There is still so much to see and characters to develop.
