LOS ANGELES, CALIF. – Feb. 26, 2015 – CBS has declared Wednesday, March 4 WORLD CSI DAY, and will embark on a global effort for CSI to break the GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS® Achievement for “Largest Ever TV Drama Simulcast.” The event will celebrate 15 years of the CSI franchise, one of the biggest and most successful in the world, and the U.S. premiere of CSI: CYBER. The current record for the largest TV drama simulcast was achieved by the special 50th anniversary episode of “Doctor Who,” which was broadcast in 98 countries across six continents in November 2013.

The global event will feature a worldwide simulcast of the CSI: CRIME SCENE INVESTIGATION episode “Kitty” (OAD: 4/30/14), which aired as the planted spin-off for CSI: CYBER, the next generation and fourth series in the franchise. The episode will air in more than 150 countries at 7:00 PM, ET (12:00 GMT) and will be streamed in the U.S. on CBS.com from 4:00 PM, PT to 12:00 AM, PT. CSI: CYBER, starring Academy Award® winner Patricia Arquette, premieres that same night in the U.S. on Wednesday, March 4, at 10:00 PM, ET on CBS.

In celebration of WORLD CSI DAY and the CSI franchise, special collectors’ edition art was commissioned to commemorate each of the series in the franchise, which will take over the shows’ Facebook accounts, which reach more than 30 million fans worldwide, and their Twitter accounts, which have more than 800,000 followers worldwide, and be prominently featured on CBS.com.

Sunday evening was the season finale for CSI’s 15th season, with a emotional goodbye for George Eads. We still don’t know if there will be a 16th season, but either way I’m going to miss Nick :(

CSI Boss Promises “Touching Farewell” for Nick Stokes

by admin | February 14, 2015


It’s time for CSI fans to say goodbye to Nick Stokes.

Although Sunday’s two-hour finale will resolve the season-long arc of the Gig Harbor Killer, all eyes will likely be on George Eads, as the original cast member departs the show after 15 seasons. “[We’re] serving two masters,” executive producer Don McGill tells TVGuide.com. “On the one hand we needed to wrap up the season arc and have an exciting conclusion, and at the same time [we had to] really pay tribute to the Nick character and give George Eads and Nick Stokes a star exit in the series. I hope the fans will be happy with the result.”

While Russell (Ted Danson) & Co. remain focused on stopping psychopath Paul Winthrop (Mark-Paul Gosselaar), Nick faces a tough decision when he is offered a chance to run his own CSI lab in San Diego. “Nick is grappling with the decision, but, as all our CSIs do, he soldiers on, even though he has this thing gnawing at him,” McGill says. “We do resolve the serial killer story line and then that yields to a great denouement where Nick’s choice comes to the fore. We really see him struggling with it and see him reaching out for help with the decision from … the people who are closest to him and have been with him for this whole ride.”

Indeed, Nick turns to colleagues Sara (Jorja Fox) and Greg (Eric Szmanda) for advice, which ultimately leads to a reflection of Nick’s growth through the course of the series. “The evolution of Nick Stokes from the pilot to now has been a pretty rich character arc, which took him from a young CSI who was being mentored by Grissom [William Petersen] to the guy who inherited the mantel of Grissom,” McGill says. “So, it made sense to consider an idea where Nick would go on to ‘become’ Grissom at another lab and make his name and reputation as a lab director. It seemed like the logical conclusion and culmination of that character arc from the pilot.”

And it’s because of the character’s rich history that McGill decided to give Nick a happy ending. “The Nick character is so critical to the show and, in my mind, the success of the series, that there was never any discussion of killing off Nick,” he says. “We always felt like the character is too important and too beloved — not just by the fans, but by those of us behind the camera. We always intended to give Nick an emotional and touching farewell, and one that also would leave the door open for Nick to come back. San Diego’s not too far from Vegas, so who knows? There could be a CSI: San Diego!”

While Nick will live to fight another day, not every character will. “It’s possible that Paul Winthrop in some odd way gets the last laugh,” McGill teases. “There is a cliff-hanger. We have a great tradition of our characters in jeopardy and, yes, we do leave our viewers with a question about the fate of one of our heroes.” Adds co-executive producer Chris Barbour, who wrote the episode: “Sacrifices are made that will weigh heavily on Russell as we go into the next season.”

But will there be a next season? Although the long-running procedural has lost some of its ratings steam since being moved to Sunday nights, McGill remains hopeful that the show will be able to resolve its cliff-hanger next year.

“We pitched the finale concept with the cliff-hanger to the network and they were very, very supportive of that idea,” McGill says. “Obviously, there are lots of discussions about the fate ofCSI next year, and from everything we understand, the show ain’t over. We have to work with that in mind and doing a cliff-hanger seemed only natural to us. We don’t know what’s going to happen exactly, but we’re super hopeful that we’re coming back, and, at this point, the network’s given us no indication that that would not be the case. The finale leaves us with some unfinished business that we’re eager to finish next season.”

CSI‘s two-hour season finale airs Sunday at 9/8c on CBS.
