2 months before the breakdown between CBS, producers & Kanakaaredes, CBS made the decision to move the show from a secure berth on Wednesday at 10 to the Friday night deathslot at 9. If not for the loss of Melina Kanakaredes, the show could have easily survived, but CBS was dead set on sabotaging this show because out of all 3 of the CSI series', this was the most expensive to produce and CBS had gotten greedy & stupid.
If you're wondering what the second & fifth shots fired were, the former came in the decision to hold the 100th episode of the CSI series set in NEW YORK in LOS ANGELES, illustrating the stupidity, the ignorance, the corruption, the mindlessness, the incompetence on part of the producers who were incapable of connecting the dots. Because it makes logical sense to not hold the celebration for a show in the city in which it's set. What you get when you have rocket surgeons like Jerry Bruckheimer, Ann Donahue, Jonathan Littman, Carol Mendolsohn, Pam Veasey & the jerkoff at the top, Anthony Zuiker. The final shot came in the form of hiring Sela Ward, the dummy who 8 years earlier turned down the role of Megan Donner on CSI:MIAMI.
Without the chemistry of the classic cast, the show became an incohesive mess. The show was weak, poorly written, nowhere in the vicinity of the amazing show it used to be. From the moment Season 7 premiered, CSI:NEW YORK was in a death spiral. At the 100th episode party in 2008, Sinise proudly exclaimed 0nto 200! When you make the decision to celebrate the 100th episode of the CSI set in NY by holding it in LA, the show was doomed. At that moment the doomsday clock ticked faster & closer to midnight, until finally in 2012, production came to a final end and all of the episodes broadcast in 2013 were nothing more than a burnoff. Rest in pieces, CSI:NEW YORK, rest in pieces.
