CBS is no longer in a CSI: NY state of mind. And it’s leaving Vegas.
Sources confirm that the Eye Network has cancelled both shows.
Also put out to pasture: Longtime utility player Rules of Engagement and rookie cop drama Golden Boy.
The decision to ax CSI: NY, which was widely expected, leaves just one CSI show — the still-kicking mothership — on CBS’ air. The fate of freshman drama Vegas, meanwhile, was essentially sealed when CBS demoted it to Friday night.
Rules of Engagement will conclude its miraculous seven-year, 100-episode run on Monday, May 20.
TVLine’s Renewal Scorecard has been updated.

CSI and CSI: NY are teaming up for a two-part crossover in February.
CSI will kick things off in the first hour, with CSI: NY‘s Detective Mac Taylor (Gary Sinise) traveling to Las Vegas to surprise his girlfriend Christine (Megan Dodds). When she’s missing upon his arrival, he calls on D.B. Russell (Ted Danson) to help find her.
In the second part, airing on CSI: NY, Russell will go to New York as the pair searches to find out if Christine is still alive.
The procedurals previously staged a three-part crossover with the now-defunct CSI: Miami in 2009.
Part 1 will air Wednesday, Feb. 6 at 10/9c and Part 2 will air Friday, Feb. 8 at 9/8c.

Neal McDonough has landed a guest-starring role on CSI: NY, TVGuide.com has confirmed.
The 46-year-old actor, who most-recently recurred on Justified, will play Senator Gordon Hamilton, who is injured when a shootout erupts at a campaign rally, according to TVLine.com, which first reported the news. Lindsay (Anna Belknap), who is attending the rally, will be hurt in the ensuing chaos.
McDonough will appear in the fourth episode of the CBS procedural’s upcoming ninth season. His other credits include roles on Captain America, Desperate Housewives and TNT’s drama pilot L.A. Noir from Frank Darabont.
CSI: NY returns Friday, Sept. 28 at 8/7c on CBS.
When CSI: NY heads to San Francisco for an early October episode, the gang will be joined by a former thirtysomething fave. Peter Horton, who played thirtysomething’s Gary, has been cast as a California-based FBI agent who once dated Jo (Sela Ward).
While visiting New York, Horton’s character will reconnect with Jo and help her and Mac (Gary Sinise) with a case that concludes in the City by the Bay.
