With CSI: NY and CSI: Miami both having been cancelled, the original CSI: Crime Scene Investigation is the last of franchise on the air. After many years in the same Thursday timeslot, CBS has moved it to Wednesdays. Will the viewers follow the series or let it go? Will CSI be renewed for a 15th season? Time will tell.
The original CSI follows crime scene investigators as they try to solve cases as part of the Las Vegas Police Department. This season’s castmates are Ted Danson, Elisabeth Shue, George Eads, Jorja Fox, Eric Szmanda, Robert David Hall, Wallace Langham, David Berman, Jon Wellner, and Paul Guilfoyle.
The ratings are typically the best indication of a show’s likelihood of staying on the air. The higher the ratings (particularly the 18-49 demo), the better the chances for survival. This chart will be updated as new ratings data becomes available — usually the next day, around 11:30am EST/8:30am PST. Refresh to see the latest.

For comparisons: The 13th season of CSI averaged a 2.9 rating in the 18-49 demographic with 11.43 million total viewers.
Note: Note: These are the Live + Same Day Ratings which include “live” viewing plus delayed DVR viewing, up until 3am local time that same night. Ratings marked with an “*” are the fast affiliate ratings and will be updated with the Live+SD numbers when they are made available. Typically, networks get paid for C+3 ratings which includes DVR viewing within three days of the original airing when commercials are watched. Those numbers are rarely released to the press.
