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?

    Definitely a good show, should be renewed. I thought it had a good group of actors with different backgrounds and stories that can be built upon. Hope it makes a comeback either on CBS or another station. Get rid of some of those dumb reality shows.

    This show was should be renewed for another run. If it isn’t, I hope that another network will pick it up. this was one of the shows that I looked forward to every week. PLEASE reconsider.

    I think they should have gave it more time before canceling the show. Ok yes the acting wasn’t so great but the season just started and you have to give viewers some time to know about the show. Can’t expect an overnight sensation.

    it just blows my mind they never give shows a chance move to a different time slot a different day DUH

    This is a great show, with a diverse and interesting cast of characters. Just like the network to cancel something with merit just because it might take more than 4 shows for people to tune in. This is why I rarely watch major network TV, they never give anything a chance the way independent networks do.

    Another FAIL for the networks. They stuff all these Reality Shows down our throat and drop any show that doesn’t find an immediate audience! I watch and record CBS and alot of others and I don’t even remember EVER seeing a Commercial advertising the next episode. How pathetic is that?

    Why are you canceling one of the rare interesting and intelligent shows? The characters are well developed and the story lines believable. For those of us who do not enjoy dumb reality shows the choices are getting very slim!

    I liked this show and thought it had great potential, if nothing else’s,as a filler for rookie blue when the season ends. Some of the characters are weak and unattractive but I liked the storyline. And the theme song was hot!

    cbs missed when they cancelled it.

    I am VERY disappointed to learn this show is being cancelled. I went to look for it to DVR it, and couldn’t find it! }-: Is there a possibility that it will get renewed? Please? You know sometimes it is hard to start new shows in the summer when everything else is reruns. Give it another chance!!
