CBS cleaned out its closet today, delivering a swift axe-chop to four shows, including a pair of long-running series. CSI: NY is saying goodbye after nine seasons, which means the original flavor is the only remaining iteration of the franchise. Rules of Engagement has also been canceled, after seven years of loyal service to the network, but I'll only believe that once the show has been off the air for three straight seasons. That thing is like a cockroach, it can't be killed.
Going one-season-and-done are Golden Boy and Vegas. Both series were just kinda there this season, getting middling reviews and ratings. It was initially rumored that they might be competing for one spot, but with CBS's solid drama development slate, neither ended up making the cut.
The cancellations followed today's earlier news that CBS has picked up six new series, including the dramas Intelligence and Hostages and the comedies Mom, We Are Men, The Millers, and The Crazy Ones.
