CBS Cancels Five Series

For months now, we’ve been wondering whether crime scene investigators in Miami or New York would get the pink slip as rumors circulated that one (or both) of the CSI spinoffs would get canceled.

We now know the answer. And it looks like David Caruso will be hanging up his shades for good after 10 seasons.

CBS has canceled the costlier of the two, so CSI: MIAMI will not return next season. CSI: NY, the cheaper of the two spinoffs, earned a reprieve and will be back for its ninth season.

The ax fell on four of the Network’s freshmen series.

UNFORGETTABLE, featuring Poppy Montgomery as a detective who can’t forget anything, except for the circumstances surrounding her sister’s death, apparently failed to be memorable enough for viewers.

CBS offered no life support to medical drama, A GIFTED MAN, starring Patrick Wilson as a talented neurologist haunted by the ghost of his ex-wife. Wilson caused a minor controversy when he tweeted that after hearing rumor after rumor about whether the show would return, he couldn’t be happier now the question was actually answered, adding that “As good as it was (sometimes) it was not what I signed on for.”

The sitcom ROB! actually looked quite promising when it began, boosting Thursday night numbers while paired with BIG BANG THEORY. But by the end of eight episodes, the numbers slipped enough to get it yanked.

NYC22 didn’t catch on quickly enough, and the show about rookie cops in the Big Apple is now permanently off duty.

Of the five shows, which one will you miss the most?
