CBS Cancels CSI: Miami, Unforgettable, A Gifted Man, Rob, NYC 22; Renews CSI: NY

Put on your sunglasses and dust off your Horatio impression before you finish reading this sentence, because CBS has just done a drive-by... on CSI: Miami. Yes, the network that's known for its procedurals has axed one of its veterans: The David Caruso-starring CSI spin-off will not live to see Season 11. Though Miami wasn't the lowest-rated series of the three in its franchise—that would be CSI: NY—it was more expensive to produce than its fellow spin-off. Both Miami and New York were on the bubble (Original Recipe CSI was renewed in March), so money is likely what made the final call. [UPDATE: CSI: NY has now officially been renewed.]

But CSI: Miami wasn't the only casualty at the "most-watched network" today. CBS also canceled freshmen series Unforgettable, A Gifted Man, Rob, and NYC 22. None of the cancellations were particularly surprising—though not all of them were guaranteed, as Unforgettable and Rob were both decent performers in the ratings. That said, A Gifted Man was flop by CBS standards, with only a 1.4 rating the adult demographic, and it's hard to believe anyone even knew NYC 22 was on the air.

A Gifted Man's demise was a bit more entertaining than CBS probably intended, however, thanks to series star/dreamboat Patrick Wilson posting about the cancellation on on Twitter:



Veeeery eeenteresting, no? In related news, CBS also picked up several pilots to series, including two multi-camera comedies and four dramas. We'll have more details on all of them soon.

CBS will officially announce its 2012-2013 lineup on Wednesday, May 16 during its Upfront presentation in New York.


Which of the five shows mentioned above will you miss most?

I am still so angry that CBS took CSI off the air. They didn't bother to finish the series or give it a proper ending or anything. I haven't watched CBS. Since they did that. They can have their rotten network they stink anyway!!!!

Seriously, this is how the world works today. While crappy talent-shows get to have 50 seasons. We, the real fans with brains, that do give a care about quality on the television have to suffer because the hypocritical basterds do not care about us, only about money. CSI Miami was a really great show, but like all good shows, it's cancelled. Which makes me very sad. And starting to realize that it's about time I throw away the tv, the subscription to watch tv and advice everyone to stop watching that crap all together. I will miss CSI miami.

Like someone once explained they could not care less they get hooked you up with the show for a long good time and when you really ripe then blam they just cut it out on you without warning but hey at the end of day remember that this is tv and 'the sun always shines on tv'

If its all about money, why didn't they just cancel CSI. ITS BOGUS NOW THAT MOST OF THE ORIGINALS ARE GONE--NO BODY WANTS TO WATCH IT WITH THE NEW ACTORS! Besides Grissom can never be replaced by anyone. CSI MIAMI was and still is the better of the two. I think that within time they will see that CSI is just not going to get the ratings they are hoping for and that they made a HUGE!! mistake in canceling CSI-MIAMI! YOU CAN STILL BRING IT BACK!!!!!

If CBS reads this I hope they know what they are doing because I sure as hell don't understand. if it would help i would give all three hundred dollars in my name for them to bring it back. I need something that is good to watch and if CSI Miami isn't there I don't know what to do. I really wish they didn't take the best thing I've ever known away from me.

The networks couldn't care less what we think. If a show isn't making enough money, down comes the ax. I've seen it happen a number of times over the years where a good show is cancelled.

I cannot believe CBS cancelled CSI Miami, and left Two Broke Girls and How I Met Your Mother. It was far better than these two shows combined. Hopefully, David Caruso will find another character that was as cool as Horatio Caine.

ABC has Once Upon a Time...a class act....TNT has Perception...pretty good premise for a show....Grey's is still on though House left...another sad story but it was a choice of Mr Laurie, not money grubbing front office jerks...SUPPORT ANYTHING BUT CBS !!!!!

I had a sneaking suspicion the way the last episode of Miami ended..Callie gets the kids...Eric pledges allegiance to support...they all get together for a drink and for once Horatio joins...as long as his is paid for....I even came away and told my husband the ending coulod go either way. I hoped so badly for the next weeks...when the news came...I actually felt ill. They had already robbed us of Cold Case.....and most of the other shows are vapid...I vowed to leave CBS and I have done so . It is now mid-Aug and I haven't tuned in to a single CBS show..I don't miss it... HEY PEOPLE...GOT TO FOX ...THEY HAVE A GREAT SHOW CALLED TOUCH !!!! BOYCOTT CBS !!! YOU WON'T BE MISSING MUCH !!!

I dunno.... Of the three CSI's, the only one I watched was Miami but to call for a boycott and leave H5O, NCISx2, Criminal Minds, BBT, and the only late night show worth watching, Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson..... sorry, can't boycott it, especially for Fox. But it's to each his/her own I guess.

It just goes to show you what happens when Network Execs are more concerned about Money then they are concerned about Quality Shows, Even Quality Shows that have a storng audience each week.

I do not watch today's comedies as the are not funny, so I watch mostly Dramas and the best Drama's have been on CBS, However, It looks like CBS wants to kill thier Drams's so maybe I start watching more stations like Antenna TV,This TV and ION TV - They play old shows, But the Old shows are better than most of the current shows.

Wow. I am shocked, disappointed and so sad that CSI Miami was canceled. It was by far the best of all the CSIs and so much popularity, worldwide! I think CBS would have been wise to come up with the money needed to keep it in production. It's the best show they have ever come up with. Great writers....great cast. David Caruso developed Horatio into an iconic character that became a household name. He is such a talented man. I wish him well. I hope he can now retire on the French Riviera I wish him happiness. I hope to see him again. - Too great a talent to never be seen again. I'm done watching CBS. I always looked forward to the next episode of CSIMI. Now that's gone - so am I.

Has reality shows taken over our TV'S???

There is way too much!! Think about the money used to take these "reality stars" to locations to shoot their shows? We all can think of a couple of shows. That money could be used for better shows. I don't understand the drama or thrill in watching these shows. I do not want to nit pick about certain shows. My opinoin is not the same as others. But, there needs to be a stop to this kind of programing! This should not be what we want our children or grand children to see. It is bad enough the cartoons are stupid! I am a young grandmother with many concerns for the future of tv entertainment. Can we at least keep a drama show like CSI:Maimi on??!!

I love CSI:Miami! I have watched it from the beginning. With sooo much reality shows on, the make believe is sooo much better. I watch EVERY CSI on tv. I mean ALL 3 shows. I love them all. Sure there have been changes. Guy does stupid things, girl comes from soap show, woman from past, etc. I love it! Even people that you think wouldn't fit do a great job. All 3 shows have had changes. All with interesting personalities and it has worked. In my opinion. I even like Ted on the original. To all the sponsors, please keep this show on. I will miss CSI:Maimi.

I Loved all the CSI's but CSI Miami is and will always be the best!! I should not be canceled!! I am so upset with this!! I cried!! You people who decide whats canceled or not should have your heads checked. You all don't know a good thing when you have it!! CSI NY is ok but will never be Miami.

I'm really disappointed with the way Unforgettable ended. The season did not have the kind of finale that the viewers deserved and we are now left wondering who actually murdered Rachel!!! CSI Miami didn't end properly either, the viewers who are fans of the entire CSI franchise deserved a better sending off than that - shame on CBS!!!

I completely agree on both of your comments. I am very shocked, especially at Unforgettable at getting cancelled. I never missed a show, and the show definitely should be sticking around. CSI Miami is also abit of a shock, but if it was a money issue, I guess that makes sense. I have watched all three of the CSI shows since they started. Miami did take abit to get me interested in the characters, but it grew on me. I certainly hope they don't axe CSI NY, because it definitely has become the most interesting of the three in my opinion.

I will really really miss Unforgettable!

The least they could have done was to give it a decent finale!!!

Csi Miami without a doubt. It was easily better than NY so it makes you wonder how the networks decide what to axe.

I used to joke that I just can't imagine life without Horatio...here I was waiting patiently for the next episode thinking they were just on a usual hiatus....(I'm not 1 to follow the news on my fave dramas coz I just EXPECT them to CONTINUE especially CSI: Miami.



Now, I feel at a loss. What's going to happen now? who can be responsible for the void this end has created?

why can't they end some other show???

It doesn't seem right to CSI and CSI NY without Miami; it's like Law & Order SVU being on without, Law & Order and/or Criminal Intent.

CBS, you have spit in the face of your viewers!!! CSI:Miami deserved a final season, full or half, but a final season was deserved. It's been on for 10 seasons and to have it end with the gang having drinks just seems wrong. The only good thing you did right was let Cal adopt the kids. This show was 100 times better than that crappy NY show. HATE U!!!

when you have a show like CSI miami that has been on as long as it has, it should automatically get a final season.

I'm giving up on CBS and television. We are the audience, we decide. It's one thing if a show has low ratings or no audience, but pulling a show because another is cheaper to produce has got to get you thinking if we as the audience count at all. Byebye TV, nobody needs you anymore! WE HAVE THE WWW! You love a story or want a saga to continue? Just enter the word "fanfiction" and the name of your favorite show into your browser. I promise you, you won't be disapointed. There are a lot of very gifted writers out there!

CBS HAS MADE A TERRIBLE MASTAKE. THIS IS MY FAVORITE SHOW. WATCHED IT SINCE DAY ONE. I LIKE COMEDY BUT THE EVERYDAY DRAMA IS MORE EYE POPPING. SUNDAY WAS MY FAVORITE NIGHT TO WATCH CBS THE GOOD WIFE AND CSI MIAMI. NOW I HAVE NOTHING TO WATCH. ON MONDAY I DONT EVEN WATCH THIS NETWORK BECAUSE THERE IS NOTHING REALLY WORTH WATCHING. TUES - THURS I ONLY WATCH 2 SHOWS A NIGHT AND ONE IS NOT SURVIVER. FRIDAY ONLY ONE. BLUE BLOODS SHOULD HAVE BEEN THE ONE TO LET GO. SHOULD GIVE A PROPER ENDIND IF THATS WHAT YOU WANT TO DO NOT LIKE THIS. IS JUST A NEW VERSION OF THE DISTRICT WITH CRAIG T NELSON. I THINK THAT I MAY HAVE TO FIND A NEW NETWORK TO WATCH SINCE THIS NETWORK DOES NOT CARE ABOUT THERE PROGRAMS AS MUCH AS THE FANS DO.

Unforgettable's Achilles' heel was that once you were 'trained' what to look for, it was all too easy to notice a subtle camera linger or background action and say "oh, Carrie's gonna remember that in 20 minutes". Kind of took the suspense out.
