Eddie Cibrian Dropped From 'CSI: Miami'

by Catherine Lawson, posted Jun 17th 2010 9:00AM

Eddie Cibrian (Jesse Cardoza) won't be back for the ninth season of 'CSI: Miami.'

According to the Ausiello Files, CBS passed on the option to renew Cibrian's contract. He joined 'CSI: Miami' in 2009 to fill the void left by the departing Adam Rodriguez (Eric Delko). However, following several guest spots in the eighth season original, cast member Rodriguez has re-signed to the show, and will be back full-time in the fall.

Sources close to the police procedural series said that the Cibrian-Rodriguez changeover is due to the producers' creative decision to focus on the original core team.


'CSI: Miami' follows the work of a Miami forensics department headed by Horatio Caine (David Caruso). The first spin-off from 'CSI: Crime Scene Investigation,' it debuted on CBS in 2002 and has consistently been in the Top 20. However, the eighth season had the smallest audience so far, which may explain the decision to take the show back to basics and re-focus on the central characters.

Cibrian's departure comes hot on the heels of news that producers on fellow CBS procedural drama 'Criminal Minds' have cut series regular A.J. Cook. They are also reducing the number of episodes that Paget Brewster will appear in, although she will remain a series regular.

The ninth season of 'CSI: Miami' is due to air on CBS beginning in September. The show will move from its 10PM ET Monday time slot to Sunday at 10PM ET.

Eddie Cibrian is the only reason I returned to watching CSI Miami,After skipping 2 seasons Bcuz David Caruso was becoming an arrogant hot dog,& forensics turned into silly soap.Too bad CBS made another bozo decision.I'll be watching the DVR on Sunday nights.

CBS needs to rethink their decision and keep Eddie on the show!

The coroner on CSI needs to go and I think they need to keep Eddie and let someone else go. Course it doesn't make any difference because moving to Sunday will end it anyway. If they take the women off of Criminal Minds it will end also. Why do they always have to change everything.
