"CSI: NY" has been canceled.

The New York City-set show from the "CSI" franchise will not be renewed for a Season 10, CBS has announced. Now, the original "CSI" is the only show still standing and it will return for a fourteenth season.

The network's decision to cancel "CSI: NY" doesn't come as a surprise.

The long-running Friday night procedural saw ratings drop over the course of its last few seasons. In its seventh season, "CSI: NY" averaged a 1.8 ratings in the key 18-49 demographic with 10.03 million total viewers; Season 8 saw an average rating of a 1.6 in the key demographic and 9.94 million total viewers; and its most recent ninth season, which wrapped in February, averaged a 1.4 rating and 9.68 million total viewers.

“It was a 50-50 toss-up. We have a good solid show, but I know from a business perspective what they’re thinking about," "CSI: NY" star Gary Sinise recently told Larry King of the "CSI: NY" Season 9 renewal. "Has our show run its course? Can they find a new show that’s cheaper to make than ours that can do as well? They have to take a lot into account, but we’re a solid show and when they picked us up, I was happy about it.”

CBS gave particularly early renewals to "Big Bang Theory," "How I Met Your Mother," "NCIS" and "CSI" and at the end of March, the network handed out a heap of additional renewals to "The Good Wife," "The Mentalist," "Hawaii Five-0," " CIS: Los Angeles," "Blue Bloods," "Elementary," "Person of Interest," "2 Broke Girls," "Mike & Molly," "The Amazing Race," "Survivor" and "Undercover Boss."

CBS had previously canceled "Made In Jersey" and "Partners."
