‘CSI: Vegas’ and ‘So Help Me Todd’ Canceled at CBS

After renewing 11 scripted shows for 2024-25, CBS has made its first cancellations of the spring.

The network says second-year dramedy So Help Me Todd and drama CSI: Vegas, which is in its third season, won’t return. The two shows were among just a handful of CBS scripted series whose futures were up in the air as of Friday.

CSI: Vegas is averaging about 6.4 million viewers per episode in Nielsen’s seven-day linear ratings, and So Help Me Todd draws about 6.3 million. They’re likely to be the two most watched shows to get the ax this season (not including the pre-announced end for Young Sheldon), but the bar is a bit higher at CBS — which has 12 of the top 15 scripted series since mid-February, when broadcasters rolled out their post-strike lineups — than elsewhere.

The network also has three new dramas on deck for the 2024-25 season in NCIS: Origins, which will follow a younger version of Leroy Jethro Gibbs; the Sherlock Holmes-adjacent medical drama Watson; and the Kathy Bates-led Matlock reboot, a holdover from the 2023 development cycle. (CBS also has two new comedies set for next season, a Young Sheldon spinoff and Poppa’s House, starring Damon Wayans Sr. and Jr.)

CSI: Vegas and So Help Me Todd both come from CBS Studios; Jerry Bruckheimer Television also produces the former.

The two canceled shows join Young Sheldon and Bob Hearts Abishola in leaving CBS at the end of the 2023-24 season. Blue Bloods is also in its final season but will air its last episodes in the fall. Just two other CBS scripted shows — The Equalizer and NCIS: Hawai’i — are awaiting word on their futures.
