The long-running series will end with a TV movie.
May 13, 2015
CBS has cancelled CSI: Crime Scene Investigation after 15 seasons. On the air since 2000, the long-running crime procedural made a huge impact on the television landscape during its run. The show ascended to the top of the ratings charts, becoming a flagship series for the network and ushering in countless copycat series. CSI became a billion-dollar franchise, winning awards, spawning three spin-offs of its own - CSI: Miami, CSI: NY, and the recent CSI: Cyber - and ending as one of the longest-running dramas on television.
CSI: Crime Scene Investigation will conclude its run with a two-hour TV movie on September 27. Original stars William Petersen and Marg Helgenberger will return to send the series off. Current star Ted Danson is said to be moving over to CSI: Cyber as a regular on that series.

I've watched it from the beginning, well minus that whole Laurence Fishburn era. I couldn't take that frame of time. Loved Gil & DB as bosses though. I thought that Ted and Elizabeth brought a bit of freshness to the show.
I wish that it would go out with a bang and another Tarentino directed episode because the episode when they buried Stokes alive...AWESOME!

I wish there were a way to indicate a paragraph and add a space line on this board.
My messages look mentally deficient whenever I use the hard Return key.

I think we have been pretty much bludgeoned by the DNA trope, "the person who is a wizard on the computer" trope, the "I can't get a signal on my mobile phone" trope, the eccentrically dressed girl detective .... on and on.
Creativity is just not in Hollywood's wheelhouse, to use metaphor overly used in Hollywood.
CSI Cyber is pretty common denominator stuff and I won't waste my time listing how very badly it fails, but only to say, Hollywood, we are not impressed by floating transparent computer screens that do not exist but are added in by special effects later, nor do we for one minute care about that "holo deck" in CSI Cyber. Good lord. Unsure why Cyber was not canceled.
Ironically, I'm still a sucker for Criminal Minds, which does almost all the crap I'm complaining about.

I have watched it since the beginning. It is sad to see it go. I will miss it.

I watched it in the beginning but I didn't get back into until they casted Ted Danson. He was great in it. I still think it's a mistake to cancel and it should have been a midseason trimmed down to 12 episodes but at least this show can be easily rebooted if they want to bring it back when the other shows start to tank in a couple years.

Well, once again my ADD has risen up to bite me...well anyway, replace the word Togo with Guilfoyle in my recent comment. I used to like his character a lot, but they changed him into a bully and a hardnosed, unlikeable person.

I don't believe Ted Danson ruined CSI. In his first episode, he showed some humor much like they did in Mash. However they quickly put an end to it and also lost some critical people. They brought in Fishburne which was a huge mistake. They've ruined the character of Nick Stokes and I'm sick of Togo's prune face. Someone higher up killed this show, reminding me of the old adage...If it ain't broke then don't fix it!
