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?

    If networks like CBS are using the excuse that they need to save some money and “look at costs” of producing a series, why don’t the powers that be on the executive end of things get their heads out of their respective rectums and blow off some of the “reality TV” crap out there that’s doing nothing more than wasting airspace on television. Let’s get real here-not ALL of those types of shows can be possibly doing THAT great either-right? I can just see all the mental midgets in a so called “think tank” for a network sitting around a table going, “Okay guys-what do we do “next” as far as TV program ideas are concerned?” Please.

    keep CSI: NY it is a great show as was a Gifted Man which they didn’t give enough time to get a following. I have followed all of the NCIS, and CSI shows from the very beginning and love then.

    Please don’t take off CSI-NY. My whole family (17 -50 ages) faithfully watch it every Friday. Also don’t move its day and time slot, keep it on Friday nights. Bring back Mack, he just found a new love interest. We have to see how it works out and the same for Flack.

    CSI: NewYork should NOT be cancelled. The big executives of the CBS network sit in their ivory towers and make decisions that are wrong, in this case. The “big wigs” keep moving the show day and time slot in order to secure ratings to fit a particular demographic (18 to 49). Those of us who don’t fit in that demographic like the show and want it stay on the air.

    TV network executives are not GOD. Sometimes I think they make decisions to cut a show so they can keep their jobs.

    Leave the decision up to the public viewing audience for a change. For my money the show has merits and should STAY.

    please don’t take off csi:ny.Ilove that show and I love the entire cast. I really don’t know why the other csi:shows were taken off either. I liked all of those shows too. Instead of taking off the good shows like these take off alot of the garbage shows youkeep on now. I don’t like or watch any of the lousy shows that you have on now. I am very dissapointed.

    I’m a huge supporter of the “CSI” franchise, despite the fact that the writing in the shows sometimes lags. Even when that happens, the drive and personal back stories of the characters makes up for that and whatever pitfalls the shows have. I’m in the same boat as a lot of you guys and hope that the show gets renewed, but if the network does decide to cancel, I’m agreeable to that because it has had a great run and will always live on through the DVD sets and such.
