I have been a true fan of this show since the beginning and it only gets better. I like the way characters have evolved over the years and the writers bring in new characters to keep the show fresh. I was sorry when Gary was killed off. I did like him but he was getting a little over the top. I am not really enjoying Elizabeth Shue just yet. Maybe that will change. We will see. We have too many so called “reality” shows on, yes they are cheaper to make. However I have my own reality life and that is enough. And bringing a new boss(Ted) in was brilliant. He has a certain humour that makes CSI run well. Nice also to have info on the characters. Makes for interesting scenes. CSI needs to keep going and I hope it does.
Thanks for giving me good TV to watch. Keep it up…..

Omg I love CSI so much! I got so hooked on it watching Miami. NY and Crime Scene Investigation! They already got rid of Miami I disliked that so much because these shows have made me want to go get in the field of Forensic Science! Please don’t take it away from its biggest fan in the whole world!! Lil team Jorja all the way!!!!

Grissom made the show and without him on it, they can take it off. I do not like
Ted Danson on it, it makes it look like a comedy.

Long time fan of CSI–do not like all the ‘personal’ stories this season and the CSI in harms way. Stick to the crime.
That said—can not believe writers chose to end the romance of Sara and Grissom just because Billy Petersen won’t return. Petersen does not have to be on screen, or even heard, for Grissom to be in Vegas and making Sara happy!
I’m sure CSI will be around for 14 seasons, but, please, write crime stories, not all this personal angst! Writers are no where near as talented as Rambo and Goldfinger and others from seasons 1-6.

No Idon’t think they should cancell it. I’m sick and tired of getting involved in a really good show then they cancell it. I’m a faithful watcher right from the beginning love them all. There are so many “Stupid” shows on right now it makes me sick. Is TV getting that desperate they have to put garbage on the air just to fill in the time slots? They have taken off 666 Park Ave,Human Target,CSI Miami,Flashpoint ect What’s going on???

Absolutely adore the new cast of CSI. The show is still excellent and reliable. There is no reason to cancel it. Ted Danson makes an excellent supervisor – those ‘family meetings!’ – and brings a new dimension to the show with his family. Nice touch, that! The relationship between Finlay/Shue and Russell/Danson is also intriguing.

Love Ted Danson as D.B. Russell. Enjoy watching CSI and CSI NY. Hope they both get renewed for another season.

I absolutely LOVE Ted Danson on CSI! I loved Peterson as Grissom, but Danson is doing an AWESOME job!! It is getting good again. Don’t let it go yet!!!! Same for NY!! Too many shows get cancelled after a season or 2 that had potential, but the CSIs already have it down to a science so keep them as long as possible! ;-)

Since the introduction of Ted Danson into CSI this show was given a fresh shot in the arm.
Please don’t give up on this program and let there be a 14th season

CSI’s doing great and with it into it’s 13th season it’s had a wonderful run. I never thought I would enjoy this show but after my coworker at DISH got me hooked I never miss an episode. I’m always looking forward to what’s next on primetime since its all I mainly watch. I get it recorded using the PrimeTime Anytime feature in my DISH Hopper DVR which records all four major networks nightly which fixed all the timer conflicts. This puts an end to all the DVRs constantly being tied up in the evenings and lets the kids watch some other shows too. I also like the fact I can watch all my shows on any TV in my home.
