CBS renews ‘CSI:NY’, axes ‘Criminal Minds’ spinoff


CBS has renewed CSI: NY for an eighth season, while axing Criminal Minds: Suspect Behaviour according to reports.

The former show has been picked up, despite recent speculation surrounding its future.

According to reports,the crime drama’s seventh season finale which stars Gary Sinise and Sela Ward aired on the network on May 13 and attracted 10.22m viewers.

The Forest Whitaker-starring Criminal Minds: Suspect Behaviour will reportedly not return for a second run.

The show, which also stars Janeane Garofalo and Beau Garrett, pulled in over 13m viewers when it premiered in February, but the most recent instalment attracted just 9.31m.

CBS is due to announce its official 2011/12 fall schedule tomorrow at the upfronts.

The network recently axed $#*! My Dad Says, Mad Love and The Defenders, but picked up new shows The 2-2, Unforgettable and How to Be a Gentleman.
