CBS Renews CSI: NY, Cancels CSI: Miami, Unforgettable and Others; Rules Still on Bubble

Get More: Cancellations

CBS made call on all but one of its lingering “bubble” programs on Sunday, renewing CSI: NY for another season while pulling the plug on 10-year-old CSI: Miami and the freshman programs Unforgettable, Rob and NYC 22.

A decision has yet to be made on the Eye’s last “bubble” show, Rules of Engagement.

UPDATE: CBS reversed its decision on Unforgettable and renewed it for a Summer 2013 return — albeit with some cast changes.

Of CSI: Miami‘s 10-year run, CBS said in a statement, “[It] 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.

  • I can’t believe that out of all the television shows that are out there that this one gets cancelled. It’s getting harder and harder to find a good show to watch without having to listen to reality drama and nonsence tv shows.

  • Unforgettable was a great show, something different to boot. Rather than carrying on with something thats been arund since Abe Lincoln why couldnt they have given Unforgettable a second season? The characters, stories, effects… all were super!

  • I LOVE CSI-NY AND CBS MADE THE RIGHT DECISION TO KEEP NY AND CANCEL MIAMA. MIAMI WAS SO BORING. I LOVE UNFORGETTABLE AND THINK CBS MADE THE WRONG DECISION. I HOPE USA OR TNT PICKS IT UP. I WILL DEFINITELY WATCH THE SHOW ON THOSE STATIONS. I ALSO LOVE BODY OF PROOF AND AM HAPPY IT WAS RENEWED FOR ANOTHER SEASON. TNT IS LOSING THE CLOSER AND WOULD DO WELL WITH UNFORGETTABLE.

  • I can only conclude that the execs at CBS are whacked. They keep 2.5 Men in order to save face, but they cancel Unforgettable. I agree with the many who have expressed dismay at its cancellation. CBS, please reconsider your decision! TBS, TNT, NBC, ABC,…anybody out there?…please pick up this show!

    • I agree wholeheartedly. Unforgettable was one of the best shows this season and CBS cancelled it. What were they thinking?

  • CBS used to be just about the only channel I watched. Now it seems like I’m about to have to find other shows to watch. CSI Miami and Unforgettable and A Gifted Man! Wow, all at once ! None of the previews for those new shows interest me at all

  • We will not stand for this! Somebody please – bring back Unforgettable and Poppy
    Tired of stupid tv shows which as insulting – this show should have a long run – it’s a classic and has an enormous following. Don’t let us down – please?

  • I’m so disappointed with CBS, I really enjoyed CSI Miami and Unforgettable………why DON’T you ask the public. It seems that’s the least you could for the faithful who watch!!~Just saying………….

  • PITCH UNFORGETTABLE TO ANY STATION AND WE’RE THERE. TIRED OF STUPID TV SHOWS. THIS WAS EXCELLENT, HAD A 13 MIL FAN BASE SHARE OF THE MARKET AND TREATED AUDIENCE AS INTELLIGENCE – A PLOT WITHIN A PLOT.
    MYSTERY LIKE HITCHCOCK – GREAT SCRIPTS AND ACTING AND LEFT US HANGING.
    HOW ARE YOUR RATINGS NOW CBS. POPPY RULED AND WAS A WONDERFUL HERO AND GREAT INSPIRATION FOR YOUNG GIRLS – WHAT’S NOT TO LIKE ABOUT UNFORGETTABLE. JUST THE PREMISE IS FASCINATING – THERE IS SUCH A NEUROLOGICAL DISORDER AS HYPERTHYMESIA – AMAZING THAT CBS THREW AWAY A SHOW THAT WAS GROWING IN EVERY WAY. EVEN MARK HARMON SAID NCIS GOT BETTER AS THE YEARS WENT ON – BOTH IN FRON AND BEHIND THE SCENES. THIS WAS RECOMMENDED FOR AN AWARD COMING OUT ON YEAR ONE.
    DON’T LEAVE US HANGING – BRING BACK A FIRST RATE SHOW – PLEASE – CABLE
    TNT – LIFETIME WHATEVER.

  • Really upset to hear Unforgettable as been cancelled, i hope they have a rethink. I didn`t know CSI MIAMI had been cancelled, till i read it here. Gutted about them both not coming back on. Brilliant shows.
    PLEASE DON`T CANCEL THEM!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • I can think of a lot of shows CBS could have taken off the air and CSI Miami is not one of them. In my Florida Evans voice Damn!! Damn!! Damn.

  • I don’t understand the logic in cancelling Unforgettable or CSI Miami. If the networks want people to purchase what they are advertising then put on commercials that appeal to all ages. People of all ages buy cars and technology, medications sorry if I don’t go to Subway everyday or play computer games. That said, a lot of people over the age of 45 have grandchildren and they are always shopping for thing they will like.

    We are subjected to 4-5 five minute commercials in every one hour show. It is impossible for the development team to have a cohesive story in 40 minutes. Watch a rerun these days and you will be thinking, something is missing, because they cut it out.

  • I’m not understanding with all the bad reality tv shows CSI Miami gets cancelled and this is one of the main reasons I commiqt to CBS….CSI Miami stayed fresh and Horatio’s Dark Side was starting to come out when handling criminals….this is a fine kick in the privates while crap like 2 In A Half Men stills trudges along….BOO YOU GUYS SUCK!!!

  • We will miss Unforgettable. It was a great show but seems they didn’t even give it a chance! CBS has made some very disappointing decisions the past few years. 2 1/2 men and 2 Broke Girls are not worth watching yet were kept. Go figure.

  • What the heck. My 2 favorite programs Unforgetable and csi miami. Finally retire and get to in ? real time and they are pulled. CSI Miami was lke family yet new every time. Unforgettable was delightful — some humor and a new look at how to solve a crime. Loved the cast as well. I’m truely saddened. Barb

  • That is such bull. You can renew two and a half men which sucks now, but cancel Csi: Miami like be serious that’s a veteran show a great series. I’m so disgusted with cbs

  • After reading through approximately 75 comments about 2 of my fav shows it seems the general consensus is that anything geered to persons with a brain OVER 40 are canceled. If u take the time CBS to actually LISTEN to our comments you might notice a trend. Us smart peoples make the dough to buy the advertised products. Commercials consist of 1) selling cars( 2) insurance for cars (3) investment companies (4) electronics of every kind (5)cell phone companies WHY DO YOU CUT OUT THE GENERATION OF BABY BOOMERS AND “ME” GENERATION? Somebody better start recalculating before all you do have are the generations that impulse purchase a new shampoo or listen to a debt consolidation ad.There’s not much left for me to tune in to CBS program or just tevo and edit out the commercials. NOT ALL OF US ARE SQUIRRELING AWAY FOR RETIREMENT. I don’t know about anyone else but I can have my cake and eat it too. I can afford the cars, insurance, electronics, cell phones, new styling product AND invest wisely for my future. WHAT’S THE POINT OF SAVING EVERYTHING. when you can get hit by a truck tomorrow. Put back the “good” shows you blithering IDIOTS.

  • I love CSI: Miami and it is for sure my favorite of the 3. I watch all the reruns on amc now cuz there aren’t any new ones! I believe it was a terrible choice to cancel it and agree with everyone else that some of the shows that are on tv now-a-days are pointless and just for reality tv fame…bring back the great crime drama so I can watch horatio get those bad guys some more!!

  • Why in the world did CBS cancel CSi: MIAMI??? There are other shows that should have been cancelled or never renewed. How can you leave the fans hanging like that? I love Horatio Cane and the crew. I need more CSI MIAMI. Unforgettable is a great show! Bring it back…..

  • I no I’m late but after it didn’t come on I looked to see why. Now I am sad, sad, sad about CSI Miami, one of my favortie shows leaving. I also agree that 2 and a half men should be canceled as well as CSI NY, I just can’t get into it.

  • I love all the CSIs and both of the NCIS. I also loved Unforgettable. I can not belive that they canceled it. I hope that both CSI Miami and Unforgettable come back in the fall. I will miss them both.

  • Wow! What the… I can’t believe they cancelled CSI Miami. I didn’t even know until now. Usually when a season ends, I just wait for it to come back. But since the other CSI’s are back, I figured I’d look into this one. CSI Miami is one of my ultimate favorite shows (along with a number of the other Prime Time shows). I never really liked CSI NY, but the last season or two, I’ve become to like it. CSI Las Vegas has gone down hill since the original cast started to leave, I still enjoy the show, but I think CSI Miami was really the best. It still had the original cast. I guess I’ll be shopping for the past seasons on dvd.

    I really enjoyed Unforgettable too. I wanted to find out what happened to Karie’s sister Rachel.

    CBS, please don’t take any more of these good Prime Time shows. Yes, I love these crime shows (NCIS, NCIS LA, CSI NY, LV, Miami, Hawaii 5-0 & Criminal Minds. I record them every week on my DVR, because I’m usually really busy with my son during the week and don’t stay up late, because we get up really early the next morning. But I always spend a day on my weekend to cozy up and catch up on them all (while my son is gone visiting his father).

    CBS, I’m sad you keep taking really good shows away. Every time I turn around one of my favorite shows gets cancelled. If you want to cancel something, cancel Sharon Newman from Y&R. Thank you!!

  • I love my criminal minds and all of the csi shows, it has not been the same without Horatio! Get rid of 2 and a 1/2 men, it is so stupid without Charlie Sheen and bring back csi miami
    Why does cbs cancel all of the great shows and leave the stupid ones ? This is why I hate getting involved in watching this channel, they always do this
