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?

PLEASE don’t cancel this show!!!! It’s the only reason I watch CBS any more. I never cared for the regular CSI – CSI:NY imho has better stories, better characters (especially since Sela Ward came aboard), and better location (I LOVE NY :) ). CBS has tried running several new shows that are ‘cheaper’ to produce than CSI:NY, and they have all failed miserably. If CBS wants to keep saying that it’s the number one network, they can’t cancel one of their best shows. Honestly, that makes no business sense at all. Save CSI:NY!!!!!

Renew CSI NY for one last season or at least show the season finale. CSI NY should not be cancelled just because one of the actors are leaving. All the shows I watched there was always a season finale, ending the show. The CBS company has to at least show the season finale for this season just before the show was off the tv because of the new show golden boy. That golden noy show is not that good. Please show the season finale of csi ny for this season. All of these actors including sela ward were great playing the detectives on the show. CBS company csi ny should remain on tv at least until this years season finale is shown in 2013 spring. This was my favorite show. CBS, you guys keep cancelling all of my favfavorite.detective shows. But leave all the boring comedian shows on. I say CSI NY should be renewed for one last season. CSI NY hasnt been on tv for awhile bring it back on tv. Come on guys.
