NYC 22: Cancelled; No Season Two on CBS

no season 2 NYC 22 canceledThe rookies of NYC 22 won’t be honing their police skills on CBS much longer. The network has cancelled the cop series before the entire season has finished airing.

NYC 22 follows a half dozen police men and women as they learn the ropes in the Big Apple. The ensemble cast includes Adam Goldberg, Leelee Sobieski, Stark Sands, Judy Marte, Harold House Moore, Felix Solis, Tom Reed, and Terry Kinney.

Debuting on April 15th, in (now-cancelled) CSI: Miami’s former timeslot, NYC 22 attracted a disappointing 1.5 rating in the 18-49 demographic with 8.86 million viewers. The second episode dropped 7% and the third fell 14% more. Last Sunday night’s episode maintained a 1.2 in the demo and 6.87 million.

It was clear from the start that this new show was doomed to be cancelled.

The series currently averages a 1.3 rating in the all-important demo with 7.67 million viewers. On our CBS Ratings Report Card, which measures the relative demo performance of TV shows on the network, NYC 22 has an “F” grade. It’s the lowest-rated scripted show currently on the network.

The Tiffany network ordered 13 installments of NYC 22 and, for the foreseeable future, they’ll continue to air on Sunday nights.

What do you think? Are you going to miss NYC 22? Do you think it should have been renewed for season two?

I really have enjoyed the show. I wish it had made it to a season 2

So I been a fan of cop shows since the early 80’s & 90’s, 21 Jump Street, Hill Street Blues, NYPD Blues, NY Undercover, Law & Order just to name a few. We had something fresh and new on the air and just when things start getting good the Broadcast is cut from programing. Season 1 rock solid cast great screen scripting and now no season 2, major disappointment! I especially like the way Judy Marte plays out her role. She reminds me of a real latina cop from Washington Heights. Been a fan of hers since Raising Victor Vargas “Great Movie”. Hoping another broadcasting station picks up season 2 and every other season their after. All in all fantastic show!
