Breaking: CBS Cancels Criminal Minds Spinoff, Renews CSI: NY
The news was better for fellow in-limbo procedural CSI: NY, which was picked up for an eighth season.
Suspect Behavior had three things going for it when it launched at midseason: Huge brand recognition, a cushy post-Minds timeslot and an Oscar-winning leading man in Forest Whitaker. The show nonetheless never caught on ratings-wise and now joins The Defenders, $#*! My Dad Says and Mad Love in CBS’ trash bin.
CBS has yet to officially renew CSI, CSI: Miami, Blue Bloods, NCIS: Los Angeles, The Mentalist, Criminal Minds, The Good Wife and Hawaii Five-0 but all are locks to return in the fall.
TVLine’s Renewal Scorecard has been updated.
