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 have been watching CSI: NY since it started 9 seasons ago. I own them on DVD. They took off CSI: Miami after 10 seasons and now this. You want to replace it? When something as good as these. Shows. Are why mess it up. I had to watch Golden Boy last night andit DID not appeal to me. I guess next you’ll be replacing. NCIS. WHen u do I won’ t watch CBS again. Please put CSI: NY back on. PLEASE

    CBS seems to constantly be shooting itself in the foot. CSI NY is far better than the old…and I do mean “old” CSI Original set in Las Vegas. Gary Senise really doesn’t “play” the part; he “is” the part because he puts so much of himself into the role.
    The new show that CBS is trying to foist upon its viewers as some great show is the Golden Boy. So far in my opinion that has fallen flat on its face. With all the hype about it I figured the young cop wouold be doing some extraordinary things…but it has turned out to be a run-of-the-mill show. I think CBS should get rid of some of their dead wood executives with their huge salaries and save themself money in that direction and leave CSI NY alone; it is a great show and I love Danny and that cute wife of his…she is a sweetheart indeed! My vote is the KEEP CSI NY GOING!

    CSI NY is one of the best shows on tv. I watch it every week. Why do they cancel good shows to put some new show on for a few episodes and then just cancel them too.Keep CSI NY it is a good show. I think it is better than original CSI.

    I think it is way better than the original CSI.I watch it every Friday. RENEW Why put new shows on for a few episodes and get rid of it anyway when you have a good show that works..

    This is a good show. It has a cast that has chemistry and should stay for one more season at least.

    I love this show. They should not cancel it. Renew it for one more season, have closure. It would be great if they brought back Melina Kanakaredes aka Stella, she can go head to head with Sela Ward aka Jo Danville. That would be great.
