CBS recently unveiled their latest cop drama, NYC 22, in the CSI: Miami timeslot. Sadly, it’s not performing very well and has been dropping in the ratings every week.
The network’s programs are performing very well overall so it’s not really a question of “if” NYC 22 will be cancelled but just a question of “when.”
According to our CBS ratings report card, which grades shows based on their demo averages (relative to the other shows on the network), NYC 22 has an “F.” It’s the lowest-rated show on the network and is performing even worse than dramas like Blue Bloods and CSI: NY which air on little-watched Friday nights.
Per the overnights, last night’s third episode fell to a 1.2 rating in the demo with 7.6 million total viewers. That’s a decline of 20% when compared to the series premiere’s disappointing numbers.
Perhaps the network executives had a bad feeling about the show from the start because they only scheduled four episodes. If there had been more on the schedule, they’d surely be looking at pulling them by now. On May 13th, the 10pm timeslot will be filled by the Survivor reunion show and the week after that will have a Jesse Stone TV movie.
It’s not clear how many installments of NYC 22 have been produced but IMDB lists 13 episode titles. It seems likely that, if the folks at CBS decide to air the remaining nine episodes, they’ll burn them off over the summer. Or, perhaps they’ll release them online… or not at all.
What do you think? Do you think that CBS will end up releasing the remaining episodes? Is the new NYC 22 TV series worth watching?

This show was a great show I just hope another tv station like tnt tbd or even USA picks its up. Cbs sucks the only thing that I watch on Cbs is csi Miami and since they canceled that guess ill watch reruns of law and order.
[…] To no surprise, CBS cancelled their low-rated NYC 22 series a couple months ago. Airing on Sunday nights, the new cop show averaged just a 1.3 rating in the 18-49 demographic with 7.67 million total viewers. The network pulled the series in May after four episodes. […]
Please don’t let the fact, that I am 65 years young, affect what I choose to watch!! It is becoming More, and More Insulting, that the alleged ‘Big 3’, as they still think they are, but haven’t been in decades, are arrogant enough, to pick and choose, because of the age of the viewer…What about the IQ, of the viewer, when I look at some of the 30 minute garbage, they play, night after night…No I don’t watch the stuff, I actually Tivo, what I watch, and speed thru the moronic, immoral previews…but I do watch an advertisement, of interest,… Read more »
This was a great show. Should be given a new time slot and a chance to prove itself. There is so much junk on TV, these actors were doing quality work. They need new night, new time.
