CANCELLATION ALERT: CSI: Cyber

An era has come to an end as the CSI franchise is officially no more with the cancellation of CSI: Cyber by CBS today. It ran for two mostly underwhelming seasons but had a shot at coming back not because of the ratings but because the CSI name is still big in international markets. But they ultimately decided to move on from the Patricia Arquette series. The original CSI premiered as a quiet Friday night show back in 2000 and then went on a tear where it moved to Thursdays and became TV's top drama. It finally ended with a TV movie this past fall after running 15 seasons. It had two very successful spinoffs: CSI: Miami (2002-2012) and CSI: NY (2004-2013).

CSI: Cyber premiered less than a month after the end of CSI but it never quite caught on. This year, it was dumped to the Sunday 10pm slot where CBS shows go to die. CSI: Miami, CSI, Cold Case, The Mentalist, and The Unit have all spent their final year(s) there and it looks like Elementary is next if it stays in its current slot, which is widely expected.

CBS also announced that Supergirl has been renewed but it will be moving over to the CW, where it probably always belonged, for season two.
