CSI: New York (commonly referred to as CSI: NY) is the second spin off of the CBS television series CSI and follows the investigations of a team of New York City forensic scientists as they unveil the circumstances behind mysterious and unusual deaths and crimes.
The show debuted in September 2004 after a crossover with CSI: Miami in MIA/NYC NonStop. CSI: NY is produced in partnership with the Canadian media company Alliance Atlantis. The series has finished it's 8th season.
This show follows the Crimelab of the New York City Police department. Unlike in CSI these characters are considered detectives, and Mac Taylor, Stella Bonasera, and Danny Messer, all mention the time they spent as cops of the time they spent on the force. The detectives travel to all five boroughs of the city and also sometimes travel outside city limits for cases.
The show is a police procedural and often deals with issues found in such a large city such as mob activity, gang violence, and ethnic, cultural, and ability differences. It has also dealt with the sensitive issue of HIV infection, although reviews of how the topic was handled were mixed.

When it originally aired, CSI: NY seemed to be the least popular of all of the CSI shows, and many people thought it was too dark, possibly due to the fact that it was shot using a blue light. At the beginning of the second season, however, this stopped at the order of CBS President Les Mooneves. 
Note: Each U.S. network television season starts in late September and ends in late May, which coincides with the completion of May Sweeps.
