Update 2: And now official that CSI: NY has been renewed.

Update: It's official, CBS has canceled CSI: Miami. CBS said in a statement:

CSI: Miami leaves an amazing television legacy – a signature look and style, global popularity and as a key player in CBS’s rise to the top over the past decade. We thank all the producers – led by Jerry Bruckheimer, Jonathan Littman and Ann Donahue — and its talented cast, led by David Caruso, for 10 outstanding seasons. Viewers around the world will continue to enjoy rebroadcasts of “CSI: Miami” in syndication and on key digital platforms for many years to come.”

related: NYC 22, Unforgettable and Rob all canceled.

original post:

The Big Apple triumphed over the sunglasses according to TV Guide's sources.  We figured CBS would part with at least one of CSI: Miami and CSI: NY, but due to lack of information on the economics (particularly international and syndication) we were never crystal clear on which would stay and which would go and gave a slight edge to CSI: Miami.  But according to the report CBS will announce it has renewed CSI: NY and canceled CSI: Miami.

    Not too happy with this decision. Cancel some of the reality shows. Will miss CSI Miami. Favourite show.

    Why would you cancel the BEST CSI show, if you cancel any of them, it should have been the regular CSI.

  • Rob

    Sad to see Miami go but sooooooo glad to see NY stay

  • Jen

    this season of csi miami, imho, was the least intetesting ever. bad writers, i must say.

  • Kristyna

    I really enjoy CSI: NY so I’m glad that it was renewed! The original (Las Vegas) and NY are my favorites. I was starting to get really annoyed with Miami… I really didn’t like Natalia, she was just ridiculous, and the plot lines were getting weak. So the best of the CSI’s are standing and rightly so! : D

    Csi Miami is the best show on tv- why was it canceled

  • Pearlene

    Will someone please tell if CBS gone mad. I have been watching CSI Miami for the past 6 years and if I miss one showing I usually record it. This show is the only one that kept me watching CBS. First they cancelled the Ghost Whisper without giving the fans a good reason and now they are cancelling CSI Miami. Why can’t they get rid of some of the reality shows that is on take them off because believe me no one is impressed or believe they are for real. This show had everything going for it. It is a show that you was willing to stay up and watch. And why did you change and place it at 10:00 on Sundays when you knew during football and basketball season it was not going to air. I don’t even like CSI NYC. CSI Miami is a family that caused you to laugh or cry depending of the plot. Please let CSI Miami continue to air, if not you have going to truly lose rating since this network has changed while I was growing up this use to be the network now it is just something for people to watch with a lot of blood killing, rape, and other violence that you don’t want your young children to see. So, if you have CANCELLED CSI Miami I can now devoted all of my time to TBS and BET, because you have lost me as a viewer as well as many more.

    I’m actually pretty sad about this. I’m not as in love with CSI: Miami as I used to be a few years ago, but I’ve been a fan of it since the beginning. Happy that CSI: NY is coming back though! I would’ve cried if they took that one off.

  • Luther

    CSI Miami was falling off. I have watched almost every episode and it was really going in a strange direction. I kinda don’t like any CSI anymore. Heratio was the best though! He was cool, competant, and tough. The shrimp boat captain is a good CSI though.

    And to think most of these nutcases went to university to make these ridiculous decisions .They have taken some of the most super programmes off and replaced them with , storage wars , dog the bounty hunter and numerous shows that the village idiot would not put on and they wonder why they are ranked 26th in the world educationally behind Zaire . I would not employ some of them to sweep the floor in walmarts .If they regard themselves as educated then i am so proud of the English school system .

  • SYNCHRONY

    This really should have been the other way around. Both good shows, but Miami has an edge to it. But when do the networks ever make sense?

  • gentlelady

    it is just wrong to cancel csi miami it has managed to make it through rough spots and character growth so beautifully i was never a fan of csi new york it could never take me away

  • heather

    IT’S WEIRD THAT SO MANY SHOWS ARE BEING CANCELLED. WHAT IS GOING ON? I DON’T UNDERSTAND WHY SHOWS CANCEL SO FAST. I DON’T BELIEVE THEY SHOULD CANCEL THEM WITHOUT TRYING THEM ON A DIFFERENT NIGHT AND POSSIBLY A DIFFERENT TIME SLOT. TO TELL YOU THE TRUTH THERE WERE TOO MANY GOOD SHOWS ON THIS PAST SEASON AND WE DIDN’T GET TO WATCH SEVERAL THAT WE WANTED TO BECAUSE OUR DVR ONLY ALLOWS US TO RECORD TWO SHOWS AT A TIME AND WE HAVE TWO DVRS RECORDING 4 SHOWS SO WE HAVE NO WAY OF DOING MORE AND YOU CANNOT WATCH ANOTHER SHOW WHILE THE DVR IS RECORDING THE TWO SHOWS. CSI MIAMI WAS A REAL SHOCK TO ME. IF THEY DIDN’T GET THE RATINGS THIS YEAR I BELIEVE IT IS BECAUSE IT WAS NOT CONSISTENTLY ON EVERY WEEK LIKE IT SHOULD HAVE BEEN. WE LOST THE STORY BECAUSE IT WOULD BE ON ONE WEEK AND THEN NOT AGAIN FOR 2 WEEKS AND THEN AGAIN IT JUST KEPT MISSING ITS WEEKLY SLOT.

  • Chris

    This timeslot has killed many good series, first Cold Case and now CSI miami, I hope The Mentalist can survive to this.

  • angela

No more Horatio I looked forward every week to come on this was my highlight and to find out this if true i will no longer be tuned in to watch CBS only for the young and the restless! Lets see how long till that show will be cancelled. Thanks alot CBS for canceling the man, horatio and the crew rocked..

  • Isaiah!

    Wow That was a bad decision to make! CSI Miami is twice as good and now they cancelled it! WTF!!! I dont even Like CSI NY

  • susan

    SHAME ON YOU CBS FOR CANCELLING CSI MIAMI. LOVED THE SHOW AND I’M SURE I AM NOT ALONE. MY DAD USE TOI SAY IF IT AN’T BROKE, DON’T FIX IT9 OR CANCEL IT. shame shame shame on you

  • Steve

    What a cock up … if getting rid of any CSI then get rid of the very first one as that has got worse and worse since Fishbourne took over … now they have Danson and bet it is even worse.

    Who are the so called brains behind CBS to decide what to cancel … look at your viewing figures worldwide and see which is better.

    Thats it I now am fed up with all these shows being cancelled because some sim wit in an office somewhere thinks it is a rubbish programme (more than likely nothing to do with viewing figures but more likely to do with someone deciding THEY do not like the programme … not going by figures at all)

    Hope CBS now go bust because ANY programme that is CBS I can assure you I will not watch and if I do not watch then I do not see any of the advertisements that the broadcasters get their money from …. if everyone done that then no broadcaster would buy any episodes of anything CBS has anything to do with and so then CBS go bust. I like that idea … anyone with me ??

    HA!!!! Kidding me? CSI:Miami the best of the three? Are you retarded? Miami was a big jokes, the writers put so much effor on making their characters clown-like scientists. It is bad enough that obviously they make a lot of factual mistakes to add a pseudocomical and pseudodramatical twist to every episode, there was no way to take them seriously. CSI:NY is the best of the three just because they had the equilibrium Vegas and Miami lack, they have the darknes and drama of Vegas and the silly fun of Miami with really good actors and a boss that does look like THE Boss and not some pseudo boss who likes to trow stupid and unnecesary one liners that stopped being funny after the 1st season. I hated Miami, it felt as if they were making fun of my inteligence but I can see why some people might like such a bad show.
