The 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?
As the wife of a NYPD sergeant, this show was incredibly accurate. They captured nuances that show how much research and dedication went into doing this right. PLUS it is much more realistic than other cop shows out there — making it more relatable and entertaining. Oh and the cinematography was on point. CBS should give this show one more shot. The first season was incredible and I hate that this talent and effort has gone in vain.
Just watched the full season on Netflix it was really good, wish they finished the season, and make a new season
I think it’s a great shame that this show was cancelled! Shows such as these have and proven to have potential, such as Third Watch. This show however solely focused on the NYPD and this would have been great to show how the rookies stepped up the ranks of their career.
This is the best, and a shame it was cancelled. Maybe the time slot was bad.
i am not happy with news…. I found the series on netflix and was very into it. i am especially displeased that the network has discontinued this show.. i will no longer watch any program from this channel until the series is started back up again.
This was such an entertaining show, it made you have an interest in every character. It’s one of those shows you can bing watch and leave you wanting more. Wish the would bring it back!
This was the best Rookie Cop show on TV. How is Chicago PD makin it happen but not this show??? Chicago PD sucks compaired to NYC 22.
BRING IT BACK!! I bet more people would watch it now.
really wish there was more than just one season, haven’t found another cop show i like just as much as NYC22
check out Detroit 187, Dark Blue, Rookie Blue, The Unusuals, and Boomtown…
Just started watching and wish they had continued with the show. Containd a lot of accurate subtle depictions of the criminal justice system and as a Criminology and Sociology major I find myself wishing there was more than one season. Such a shame
They just ******* told you why it was canceled. It wasn’t good enough for the public
