I knew one of the CSI offspring would get canned, but I admitted not really being able to pick which one since the decision was likely driven by syndication economics that are hidden to us. I went with CSI:NY to be canceled, and CSI: Miami was instead. C'est la vie.

Otherwise, I picked every other CBS renewal and cancellation correctly for the season, with a push for The Good Wife predicted as a "toss up", (pending the final decision on Rules of Engagement, which I predicted would be renewed). I will edit this post and the table once the final word on RoE is known tomorrow morning.

5/21 Update: Rules of Engagement has been renewed and will return mid-season.

With that the Index bids the 2011-12 CBS season adieu, there will be no more CBS Renew / Cancel posts until September. Happy summer CBS!

Notes:

  • :| :| :| - toss up between renewal or cancellation by May, 2012

The Renew/Cancel Index is the ratio of a scripted show's new episode adults 18-49 ratings relative to the new episode ratings of the other scripted shows on its own network. It's calculated by dividing a show's new episode Live+Same Day adults 18-49 average rating by the Live+Same Day new episode average of all the new scripted show episodes on the show's own network. The network's average ratings in the calculation are not time weighted (ex. hour long shows are not weighted twice what 30 minute shows are).

(F) -Fridays: Shows airing on Fridays were renewed with significantly lower than average Indexes.

    Looks like I’ll be watching CBS a lot next season. Blue Bloods, CSI New York, CSI, Person of Interest. GREAT SHOWS ALL OF THEM

  • Marsha

    SOOOOOOOO Happy CSI New York was renewed it is one of my favorite shows!

  • JB

    Almost this entire season10 of CSI miami never came on when it was supposed to. Every week it came on late because something stupid ran over. Every wk I turnd to watch what was the greastest CSI & that good wife mess was always still on later than it was suppose to be.& now they cancel CSI Miami for ratings. The ratings would have stayed great if it wasn’t being pushd back every single week for sumthin stupid.

  • Lil

    I can’t believe they cancelled A Gifted Man. It is one of the greatest
    Shows on TV. Please renew this for another season. At least give it another chance…..PLEASE

  • Steve H

    What a crappy year for cancellations! The Finder, GCB, Eureka, Unforgettable … and yet the Kardashians are still among us. Feh.

  • Kathy Patterson

    My family and I watch both CSI Miami and NY. We love them both!!! Dont even think of canceling the shows. We like watching Horatio and his team, and Mac and his team.

  • Lola

    You cancelled the wrong CSI. Miami was the more popular series. I never liked CSI:NY.

  • Shinohara

    I am absolutely pissed off that CSI: Miami was cancelled. They should have cancelled CSI: Las Vegas, that show has gone downhill ever since William Petersen left. Hated Lawrence Fishburn’s character and now with Marg Helenberger gone the show has gone to crap.

  • chuck

    CBS, you’re the best of the bunch. I watched 12 programs on your weekly line up and you canceled 2 of those. guess that percentage isn’t bad compared to the other networks.

  • Cyclone

    So disappointed that Unforgettable is being cancelled. I enjoy most of the CBS drama line up…. NCIS, NCIS/LA, Hawaii 50,Person of Interest, Mentalist. Don’t get to watch Good Wife much since they changed the day. I don’t watch any of the CSI much anymore. Don’t think Lt. Dan is good in his role never did like Horatio.

  • sweetbabyj511

    I am so disappointed that Unforgettable was cancelled. There are very few shows I feel are even worth watching and that was one of them. Amazes me that they renewed Two and A Half Men which is an absolutely bomb now but cancelled Unforgettable.

  • Judy

    Harry’s Law was great ! I am so disappointed it was cancelled. Give it another chance! Missing needed another season and another chance to leave it with blood on the front seat was sad

  • Judy

    PS. I know Harry’ Law was not on CBS but wanted it known how much it will be missed! Maybe CBS could pick it up

  • Sharon

    Just when a few good shows are on CBS, then they get cancelled. Why not cancel CSI NY – I can’t stand that one. Unforgettable another great show. I’ve stopped watching CBS a lot because once you like a show – cancelled. I’m still not over The Unit being cancelled. TNT and USA here I come!

  • Lena

    what bugs the heck out of me is the 9 and 10oclock time slot for sunday evenings how the heck does a show have a chance in that slot during football season with delayed timings i liked csi miami very much they should of changed there night!! that was the case with cold case another great show that footbsll ruined the ratings for and how come no one over 49 has a say I’m in my 60s and enjoy tv all shows ..even 10oclock and now I’m really upset the unforgettable was canceled what are they thinking??????I think they get there ratings from the wrong people..!!!

  • brooke_g

    I’M 21 YEARS OLD AND I WATCH UNFORGETTABLE RELIGIOUSLY. DO NOT CANCEL, BECAUSE I FIT YOUR STUPID AGE BRACKET.

  • Beverly

    I guess if you keep cancelling all the shows we like we will have to go to other channels. The junk you put on in place of good shows like the gifted man and unforgettable will not be watched by us and a whole lot of others.

  • LIZ EVERS

    I’M REAL CURIOUS TO WHAT OTHER CRAP YOU WILL BE PUTTING ON CBS.(ACTUALLY I WON’T BE WATCHING ANYTHING OTHER THAN CRIMINAL MINDS)DON’T KNOW WHO MAKES THESE EVALS. BUT I DO KNOW IT’S A TRAVESTY THAT YOU HAVE REMOVED CSI MIAMI-THE BEST-,THE GIFTED MAN AND UNFORGETTABLE. THE FACT OF THE MATTER IS IF RATINGS WERE DOWN RECENTLY YOU WERE UP AGAINST THE STANLEY CUP PLAYOFFS,THE HATFIELDS AND McCOYS AND OTHER GREAT SHOWS AND NOT EVERYONE HAS DVR. WAKE UP-YOU’RE CANCELLING THE BEST!!!!!!!!!

  • Celine O’Neil

    Very disappointed that Unforgettable and CSI Miami were not renewed. I used to get together with friends to watch it.
    We are very sorry, Maria, Jasmine, Rick, Carmen, George, Alex and Celine

  • Linda White

    How sad to cancel such a wonderful show as A Gifted Man! It reminded us how to stop and think about what we do before doing it – and the difference between right and wrong. Loved the show!
