Start spreading the news: Four CBS shows are getting the boot.

The network has given the axe to the venerable CSI: NY and Rules of Engagement, along with first-year dramas Golden Boy and Vegas, according to Deadline.

CSI: NY had aired for a whopping nine seasons, and — with CSI: Miami having been cut last year  the only show in the franchise to remain on the air is the original CSI.

Rules of Engagement lasted for seven seasons and has been on the verge of cancellation for years. Its final episode will be its 100th episode, meaning it has reached the mark needed for syndication.

Big-name casts couldn't save some of these shows. CSI: NY starred Gary Sinise, David Spade was on Rules, and Vegas was a star vehicle for Dennis Quaid.

Given that Vegas only lasted one season, we're guessing that what happened on Vegas stayed among the few people who watched Vegas.

Golden Boy is a cop drama that premiered in February 2013.

This is definitely sad news, particularly regarding CSI: NY, which has been a great show for so long.

We're trying to hold it together here, people. Talk amongst yourselves while we get composed.
