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 a good cast of characters, and I love the fact that it is “alot” of lab, that’s what CSI’s do!!! The science is FANTASTIC, and gets you to think so much more than any other show.

    Totally agree with meena.
    This season was the MOST BORING of all times!!!
    Thankfully the original CSI was/is interesting enough to get us through the year:)
    Please CANCEL CSI NY. This is no more a crime drama. It’s becoming a soap opera that it’s painful to watch!

    I think cbs should keep csi:ny. I enjoy watching it every friday. I don’t think any show could compare it csi:ny. A replacement just wouldn’t be as good.

    CSI NY is one of my husband and my favorite shows. I don’t believe you should cancel the show. You keep canceling shows that are good and you wander why people start watching another networks. Move it to another night and you will see the difference. Friday nights everyone goes out and that means Friday nights are a kiss of death for shows.

    Don’t get me wrong, I love the whole CSI franchise, but them doing that cross-over was a death sentence written in stone. They did it because this season was gonna be the last season they could. They know that one of the CSIs is out of here come May. Obviously this is more likely to go, but one of them is out.

    I think that they should renew this show. Like previously stated, there are too many things that are unsolved: Danny and Lindsay’s new baby, Sid’s cancer, Mac and Christine’s engagement, and (thought not as huge as the others) the relationship between Flack and Lovato. There are so many things that we need to see involving these characters and storylines, it would be a shame to cancel it now. I think it should return for at least one more season (though I’d like more).

    Please give Gary Sinise, and all the cast of CSI NY at least one more season. It is such a good show, we care about the stories and the people!!!! You already took CSI Miami away, don’t take this one too!!!
