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?

    We would love to see CSI New York return for several more seasons. We love the Friday nights because of CSI NY and Blue Bloods. They are both wonderful dramas.

    Please DO NOT cancel this show! It is one of the few shows my husband and I both enjoy watching. I already miss watching the show as there is nothing else worth watching on Friday nights. CSI:NY is an awesome show so please bring it back for another season.

    Renew CSI: NY. What a great two-hour segment you have with CSI: NY and Blue Bloods. I know there are lots of cop shows on, but these two are well worth the watch. And we don’t ALL go out on Friday night!!!

    CSI: NewYork is a great show. Our favorite show. Replace Golden Boy and Hawaii 5 o with CSI: NY. We do not get tired of a good show like CSI:NY. All the actors are great. Gary Sinese is a great patriot. Friday night is a bummer with CSI:NY. BRING IT BACK SOON. Reruns are better than Golden Boy and Hawaii 5 0.
