Year-to-year, the premiere was down by 10% with a 1.8 in the 18-49 demographic and 10.68 million viewers. It was in second place for the timeslot. Last season, there was a lot of speculation that CSI: NY was going to be cancelled (mainly because of its advanced age and lower ratings) but it survived. If the series can’t sustain or improve on these latest numbers, it would seem likely that it’s going be cancelled in the spring.


Reference point: The 2010-11 season averaged a 1.8 rating in the 18-49 demographic and 10.3 million viewers.

Note: These ratings are collected by the Nielsen company and are the final national numbers. These are different from the fast affiliate numbers which are just estimates of the actual ratings and are reported on by most other outlets. The final nationals are typically released within 24 hours of the programming or, in the case of weekends and holidays, a couple days later.

    Renew it. I love CSI New York its the best show ever be hope they do season 9 and a season 10…keep going…

  2. kate hawthorne says

    Renew it. I agree with most of you. It was wrong to put it on Friday. It’s 100 times better than Miami CSI! Better cast and far better writing! Gary Sinese is SO much better than David Caruso.

  3. says

    I’m definitely a fan and always have been. I think it is so sad that ridiculous fluff and outrageous reality pablum remains in the line-up, while shows that actually make you think and provide real entertainment struggle.

    • kate hawthorne says

      I so agree, Holly. CSI New York is so much better than the hackneyed Miami, and yet Miami still gets the viewers. I just don’t get it.

  4. Kat says

    Even with Stella gone, it’s still better than CSI: Miami. I’ll be pissed if they cancel New York and keep Miami.

  5. Peter Htoo says

    Renew… it’s better than Miami where everyone acts so high & mighty!!! sorry but CSI NY and LV are the best but even then LV lost some of it’s warmth when Grissom left…

  6. KAB says

    I absolutely love this show but I wish they would move it back to Wednesdays because there are a bunch of other shows that I like to record. It may be on ON Demand but the only thing about ON Demand is that you can’t fast forward or rewind as fast as the DVR can. Also I wish you had the ability to record 3 or 4 things at once. Anyway CSI NY should stay because it is great and all 3 version have been on for a long time.
