Just a day before their Upfront press conference in NYC, CBS announced “CSI: NY” has been renewed for an eighth season, Deadline reports. The size of the order for Season 8 has not yet been decided, but there’s been speculation that it will not be a full-season — 22 episodes.
Unfortunately, freshman series “Criminal Minds: Suspect Behavior” didn’t survive the bubble battle and is being canceled. It reportedly came down the the wire between the two crime dramas. The “Criminal Minds” spin-off never achieved the success of the “CSI” and “NCIS” franchises’ spin-offs, failing to find an audience during its short midseason run.
CBS also recently canceled freshman series “The Defenders,” “$#*! My Dad Says” and “Mad Love” and added two new shows to its line-up: “Person of Interest” (starring “Lost’s” Michael Emerson) and the comedy “Two Broke Girls.”
