Kind of ridiculous. D: This show is a lot different from those generic shows like, "CSI", and "Law and Order". They bind family humour, crime, and fun math into a nice little bundle. You actually learn things and it's a refresher.

I think this is very foolish of CBS. Not only is the show unique in the perspective that it presents, it's also very reliable with viewer ratings. With a Friday Night timeslot, that's hard to achieve.
We have more than enough CSI's to keep us busy. Let us have our Numb3rs.

why would they do that to this show?!Its a great show which makes math appeal to everyone with crime show angle which everyone likes.I personally never like CSI or NCIS because they are too procedural compared to numb3rs which has many different sides to it like Imassumingso says.
