CBS has cancelled the long-running procedural, 'CSI: NY' starring Gary Sinise and Melina Kanakaredes after nine seasons.
The ninth season premiered to over nine million viewers which is great for a long-running series, but is way off from the 14-18 million who watched just a couple of seasons ago. The writing was on the wall for the series when CBS decided to only give the ninth season 17 episodes instead of the usual 22-24 and decided to have the show finish in February instead of May.
Here is a list of the last-five aired episodes:
13 - Nine Thirteen - January 18 - 10.68 million viewers
14 - White Gold - February 1 - 10.39 million viewers
15 - Seth and Apep - February 8 - 9.57 million viewers
16 - Blood Actually - February 15 - 8.59 million viewers
17 - Today is Life (Series Finale) - February 22 - 9.46 million viewers
This leaves only the original 'CSI' series to still be on the air after last years cancellation of 'CSI: Miami.'
