CBS Execs Address Cancellations & Whether We Could See More Of ‘So Help Me Todd,’ ‘CSI: Vegas’ & ‘NCIS: Hawai’i’

No second chances are coming for So Help Me Todd, CSI: Vegas and NCIS: Hawaii. But good news for CSI fans: there is another iteration in active development.

While speaking to reporters Thursday about the fall season, CBS bosses George Cheeks and Amy Reisenbach acknowledged their “embarrassment of riches” when it came to new and returning shows but added it was “incumbent to keep the schedule fresh and keep the momentum going.”

“Every show is different,” added CBS CEO Cheeks, when reminded how S.W.A.T. was uncanceled at the last minute. “We certainly had a wonderful experience with So Help Me Todd. It was heartbreaking.”

The series finale of So Help Me Todd will air May 16 while CSI: Vegas will say goodbye on May 19.

The cancellation of NCIS: Hawai’i was not surprising since it was already on the bubble. Still, there was an effort made to extend the drama’s run for at least an abbreviated fourth and final season, with producers agreeing to a massive budget cut and other concessions to keep the drama going.
