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.

    Here’s the official statement from CBS:

    “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.

    Really sad news about the show. :( I would’ve liked to see a final season even if it was a shorter one. Oh well, good luck to the cast and crew. AND LONG LIVE DAVID CARUSO!

    @Al.

    Neither the Good Wife nor Hawaii Five-0 are why Miami has been cancelled. CBS have made as much money as they think they can out of it and are henceforth shoving it aside to make room for a new show that they hope can grow into syndication.

    The Good Wife hasn’t reached the eps needed for syndication yet so ecnomically it makes sense to make sure it does as it is so near. HFO has a hugely lucrative syndication deal in place and so, from a purely business point of view, was a great decision by CBS.

    Miami has had a very good run compared to most shows on TV. I think more and more CBS shows will end earlier, as they really start to flesh out their plan for turning themselves into a syndication powerhouse. Wouldn’t be surprised to see The Mentalist gone after next year and HFO gone as soon as its done five or six seasons and so on and so forth.

  • Tania

    I hope this right Happy about CSI NY I liked that show but sad about CSI Miami fans

  • Paul

    They can just stick NY into the Miami slot and the dullards who watch those kind of shows will never notice the difference.

  • MJDB

    I don’t watch any of these but I’m shocked.

  • Mic601

    This is so sad! I will miss this show! Stupid decision.
    Thanks for 10 great years!!

  • DavidB

    Good goodbye to the idiot and his sunglasses. Stupid writing on that show. I gave up no it many seasons ago.

    Miami never should have been moved from Monday if they wanted it to continue. Can’t say I am surprised. Hawaii 5-0 is better. hardline_pro is right…Sunday night nearly impossible with sports overruns. Go back to movies 9-11.

    @sj…tell the secret circle that retention doesn’t matter…

    @bluejay

    csi miami has moved out from it’s 8 year timeslot to make way for hawaii five o.

    in it’s first year it was doing awesome, but because of the good wife moving to sunday’s it had to do with it’s crappy lead in and then some more.
    if csi was on a monady/tuesday timeslot it would have been rewened!

    @sj
    Review your facts then talk!!!

  • Jan

    So happy that CSI NY has been renewed. I am even more happy that NYC 22 has been cancelled.

  • TobiasFünke

    Well I guess they…

    …dug their own graves

    YEAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA

  • Lane

    HAHAHA That’s awesome.

    CSI:M joins a long list of CBS shows that performed decently in crap slots and still got canned. It’s hard to believe that a show that was consistently delayed by 30-50 minutes and increased it’s demo over a lame lead-in in a death slot would get axed. NYC22 proved that people don’t just tune into anything. I really expected both CSI kids to get 13-15 episodes and share a timeslot or be used as back-up. Considering two out of three new CBS dramas this season failed….

    @Al

    FACT is that CSI: Miami had nothing to do with the cancellations of the three ABC series. Pan Am premiered high and then kept dropping, while ABC’s own ineptitude killed Brothers & Sisters and GCB, both of which, for the most part, rated higher in A18-49 than Miami.

    FACT is that retention doesn’t matter.

    @s0303

    The Secret Circle’s ratings were on par with those of Hart of Dixie, but Dixie had higher W18-34 demos which matter more to the CW.
