Episode 08-01: Friday, 9/23/11
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.

    I am so sick of reality tv…my favorite show is CSI NY. I don’t watch any of the other CSI shows. Please keep CSI NY, stop ******** with the day and times and their ratings would be fine!!!!

  2. Cindy says

    Please Don’t Cancel CSI:NY it is the best of the CSI programs. CSI:NY and Criminal Minds are the only two dramas I watch. Please note they are both CBS programming.

  3. thisamus says

    Keep CSI: NY. Far far better than the show from which it is a spinoff (CSI: Miami).

    We detest “a gifted man” and don’t care to view it and probably won’t even turn on the television Friday night, not even for Blue Bloods.

    At this point, we’re likely to just open books instead.

  4. Rein says

    PLEASE DON’T CANCEL!!!! I love CSI: NY! I’m from Singapore, so we’re still in season 7. But I follow all the forums and episodes online. It’s my favorite because not only are the cases great, I love that it also focuses on the characters in the show and how they’re like a family. And my favorite characters are Danny and Lindsay, with LUCY MESSER!! I always look forward to the weekends because of CSI:NY. I honestly don’t know what I’ll do if it’s cancelled.

  5. Joyce says

    CSI NY is definitely the best of them all. Please keep it going. Every episode is fresh and new…they’ve changed with the times, eg tech-wise, etc. Sela has really worked though I did like Stella. DO NOT CANCEL, PLEASE!

  6. Jane says

    I sure hope it is renewed.I love it .It seems every time I get hooked on a show on this station they cancell it.I guess if they cancel this one I will start looking at the other net works or get cable shows but just love this one

  7. Dori says

    I love all the CSIs. I would hate to see any of them go. I enjoy watching every episode of each series. They should all stay. As far as the politics? I’m a bleeding heart, and I say let the pictures stay. We all need our beliefs. It’s fun to watch Jo make fun of him for it. And I just love love love her! She has added a charm to the show. I’m impressed. I didn’t think Stella could be replaced. They did a great job re-casting.

  8. Adam Decker says

    Even if this show were cancelled by CBS, I have the feeling that other networks would still be interested in it for future seasons.

  9. Matthew K. Smith says

    i think Gary Sinise, the person, should take that damn picture of Ronald Reagan off that desk in his office. he is a known conservative, and should not be using the show to advertise his political views. it was Reganomics for the past 30 years that has us in the mess we are in today, but that is beside the point. he should NOT be using the show to air his political views. scripted TV is no place for politics. get rid of the picture. i may stop watching it over this point. otherwise i like the show immensely. he is a better actor than wooden, one note Caruso!

    • Kat says

      The man’s got a right to like Ronald Reagan. I consider myself a liberal and I don’t mind it one bit. It’s not like it’s ever been a plot point or anything, either. It’d be pretty ridiculous to stop watching the show over a piece of set dressing.

  10. Marie says

    CSI New York is my favorite one! Please don’t cancel! I’ve been watching the reruns on TNT so I’m on my third time through the first seven years.

  11. Nova-Starr Maxwell says

    Csi Ny is defiantly a keeper. It has never had a bad season. I personally love all the characters. Miss Stella like crazy but Selaginella Ward is ok. Must keep Csi Ny going.

  12. ANDREW says

    EN MI OPINION DEBE SER RENOVADO CSI NY ESUNA MUY BUENA SERIE TIENE UNA MUY BUENA CALIDAD DE IMAGEN KE NO SE VE EN MUCHAS SERIES SU ELENCO ES DE PRIMERO LASTIMA MELINA POR KE LA AMABA SUS CASOS SON MUY GENIALES PARA MI CSI NY ES LA MEJOR SERIE DEL MUNDO POR FAVOR NO LA CANCELEN

  13. A.D. says

    CSI NY should be renewed; CSI Miami is on its last legs. Much as I like David Caruso, the show is slowly going downhill.
