    I think it’s time to either get better scrips or cancel CSI NY. Changing to Friday nights was not a good idea. Let’s just keep the original CSI it’s still very interesting.

  2. Nancy says

    Please renew CSI NY! It is my favorite show on Friday nights and I always look forward to the new episodes. So much goes into the show from the writing (which obviously requires a great deal of research) to the fantastic and talented actors and to the setting! I would imagine that there are people who are going into forensics and police work because of this excellent show.

    At first I was not crazy about Mac but like a wart he grew on me. Definately want to see the show back and am so greatful this show aims for an audience that has a brain and is more than T&A thing like CSI Miami. The personal side of Mac does not do it for me, I would rather keep it on the professional level but The writers are very good at what they do as far as plots go. I really do think that introducing romance to the lead characters does not work in most TV shows, as a matter of fact, I can’t think of one show that it did work. You can almost forcast that the show is on it’s last leg when they do this. I prefer the other star over Sela. She had more spice and the current one is too matronly.

  4. R Myers says

    The problem with most TV shows that are on for a few years is that the producers feel we need to get into the lives of the characters TOO MUCH. I tune in to see how they solve crimes. this show has been no different….It needs to either change back or go by the wayside. Not a bad show overall.

  5. Tlh45 says

    I think this season is one of the best so far. I hope we get at least a 200th episode, but want a 10th season more. CSI NY is my favorite of all the shows on tv!

  6. kimmie says

    I really like CSI NY i love the crime solving, the mystery part, figuring out who the killer is, but now christine she got to go she is not a good fit at all

  7. Friday viewer says

    If this is the last season, for the sake of its loyal viewers, the writers need to keep the CSI team intact. No new characters, just focus on the CSI family. No more Christine or Lovato. Just Mac and the team.

  8. Jennifer says

    I really think this season of CSI NY has improved over the last cpl seasons
    I truly didn’t care if I saw it or not, but this season, the storylines are WAY improved, Macs memory issues are touching close to home, as I have a head injury & can feel how he is feeling, & this last week with Flacks emotional journey with watching a child pass really has brought the show back from the grave. We are finally getting to know the characters and I hope its not a little to late.

  9. geri says

    I have been a faithful watcher of this show for many years and I hope it continues for many more. I really like Sela Ward’s character. I think that it does some of the older series good to add new characters every now and then.

  10. SNAPPS says

    It’s been a long run with CSI NY and I’ve watched it for a few years now. It’s been a long time favorite pick in my primetime line up. I never miss an episode.

  11. Thnunumber6 says

    I hope I hope I hope CSI:NY doesn’t get cancelled. I think the show is as good now as it was when it started. Heck, the characters on the show are almosy like family to me! Besides, if it’s cancelled, I’ll miss seeing the photo of Ronaldus Magnus (Ronald Reagan) in Mac’s office!

  12. WAYNE M. FORBES says

    Blue Bloods is the best program on t.w. Why isn’t it never mentioned on any of the
    awards show and the Emmy’s ?

  13. Betty says

    CSI Ny should definitely get a 10th season. It held it’s own in the coveted 18-49 rating group even though it was in a new time slot and not aggressively promoted. If CBS had put as much promo strength behind NY as they did for Made in Jersey the numbers would most likely have reflected it.

  14. Linda robson says

    It should definately been renewed for a tenth and more seasons. There are plenty of fans here in the UK and Europe. Renew, renew.
