CBS has renewed CSI: NY for an eighth season after what reportedly came down to a last minute decision between it and Criminal Minds: Suspect Behavior. The latter was canceled earlier today.
CSI: NY had been considered on-the-bubble for cancellation this season after its move from Wednesdays to Fridays caused a dip in the ratings. Last season the show averaged a 3.0 in the key adults 18-49 demographic, whereas this season that number dropped to 1.7 on its new night.
