CBS cancels 'CSI:NY,' 'Rules of Engagement,' 'Golden Boy,' 'Vegas'

CBS has started to swing the ax at existing series.

Rules of Engagement

Veterans “CSI: NY” and “Rules of Engagement” are among shows officially canceled. Freshmen “Vegas” and “Golden Boy” have also received their pink slips.

“Rules of Engagement” was a great utility player for the network for several years, as it plugged holes in CBS’ schedule on several occasions. The cast’s deals were up and the series had passed the 100-episode mark, so the network seemingly felt it was time.

Megyn Price directed a recent episode, which she recently told me in an interview would be a nice parting gift. 

“CSI:NY,” which starred Gary Sinise, went nine seasons. Fellow spinoff “CSI: Miami” ended last season, and now only the original “Crime Scene Investigation” remains.

“Golden Boy” was a crime drama series starring Theo James and Chi McBride, about the rise of an ambitious cop. It was produced by Berlanti Television and Warner Bros. Television.

“Vegas” stars Dennis Quaid and Michael Chiklis (not to be confused with “Las Vegas,” which starred James Caan, Josh Duhamel and Vanessa Marcil) and was a period drama series set in the 1960s. Quaid played a sheriff and rancher and Chiklis a mobseter.

cbs has been up to now the better network with the shows it has, now they get rid of csi ny for good and thats a mistake, they always keep saying they are trying to put on what we like, thats garbage. so far almost everything the put on new in the last few years has been cancelled, except person of int, element, so thats says alot about cbs lately, why do they always have to do this, its like anything else in the world they all want to break what works. they could of at least had theyre last show have meaning for us with the team. i like csi ny more then the other two, i didnt start watching csi las veg, until las year, i wasnt too impressed when they first started and still not, and i wasnt too crazy about miami either, if they ever do anything to ncis that would be the end. i really hope they dont continue being that stupid, but you never know with theyre minds. marge

It was a big shame that CSI New York had to be canceled. I thought that this serie had it all, if you did compare it with those two other's CSI series. The teamwork was "superduper good" and peferctly in all ways between the personality of all actors... True but really sad... Please let it run again and have a lot of great idéas between CSI Las vegas and New York...

More and more these days i try to avoid shows airing on the 4 big networks(NBC,CBS,ABC,FOX) until the show has gone at least 2-3 seasons and is still staying strong. They keep axing shows, picking up new ones that have just as much promise... then axe those. Instead of just sticking with things a bit longer.They wonder why their ratings keep going down, its because of things like this. These days more people are avoiding them, and switching to one of the cable networks. Any more they just want that 'next big hit' and wont settle for anything less. While they are waiting they are losing viewers left and right.

The other channels you are much better off watching new series soon as they begin to air(USA,TNT,TBS,SyFy,HBO,AMC,so on). Now even online providers are getting in on the act. With Netflix and Amazon both providing original content as well.

For the moment, still, the large productions still want to go with the big 4. However if they keep up at this rate they will soon find those large productions going elsewhere.
