CBS aired the season (possibly series) finale of CSI: Miami a couple weeks ago and are now filling the timeslot with a new cop show, NYC 22. Will this TV series last as long as its predecessor or will it be cancelled instead?
NYC 22 follows a diverse group of six rookie cops who are learning what it means to be members of the NYPD. The TV show’s cast includes Adam Goldberg, Harold House Moore, Judy Marte, Leelee Sobieski, Stark Sands, Terry Kinney, and Tom Reed. It’s produced in association with Robert De Niro’s Tribecca Productions.
The cop drama debuted on April 15th to a disappointing 1.5 rating in the 18-49 demographic with 4.43 million total viewers. It was tied for second place in the all-important demo but first in overall viewers.
Last Sunday night’s episode dropped to a 1.4 in the demo with 7.52 million. It was third in the demo and second in total viewers.
Unfortunately, those numbers aren’t nearly good enough to be renewed by CBS. NYC 22 is the lowest-rated show currently on the network and even CSI: NY — a show that’s in danger of being cancelled and airs on a little watched night like Fridays — performs better.
On our CBS report card, which measures the all important demo ratings, NYC 22 receives an “F.”
IMDB lists 13 episodes, in addition to the pilot, but CBS only has two more installments scheduled. They may get around to airing the rest of them at some point but, unless the ratings miraculously rise, it’s certain that the network won’t be ordering any more.
But, what do you think? Do you like NYC 22? Do you think that it should be cancelled or renewed for a second season instead?
