CBS' "Golden Boy" has been canceled.

Starring Theo James and Chi McBride, the series -- which debuted to 10.56 million viewers -- has seen mediocre ratings throughout its first season, bringing in between 7-10 million viewers per episode. "Golden Boy" was truly on the bubble between cancellation and renewal.

"Cop dramas are pretty much as old as television itself," McBride, who plays Detective Don Owen, said of the series ahead of its premiere. "But the difference is that this is more about relationships than just the case of the week. The writers do a pretty good job of balancing the procedural and character development. That's the greatest difference in these shows."

In addition to "Golden Boy," CBS also canceled "CSI: NY," "Vegas" and "Rules of Engagement" along with the previously canceled freshman series "Made In Jersey" and "Partners."
