The latest episode of CSI: Miami, “Stoned Cold”, came up short against award show coverage on Sunday, February 27. The episode pulled in a series low 8.18 million viewers, which is no surprise considering the crime drama’s competition. The 83rd Annual Academy Awards had 30.23 million viewers during the 10:00pm hour. NBC aired a repeat of Minute to Win It, which rounded out the hour with 2.44 million viewers. In the key 18-49 demographic prized by advertisers, the Oscars were first with a 9.9 rating/26 share, which put the awards show way ahead of Miami (2.0/5) and Minute (0.8/2).
The past few years have been a time of transition for CSI: Crime Scene Investigation’s leading lady Marg Helgenberger (Catherine Willows). Two years ago, the actress experienced a period of personal upheaval: she turned 50, her son Hugh went to college, and she divorced her husband of nearly 20 years, Alan Rosenberg. During that time, CSI was a “real stabilizing force” for Helgenberger. These days, the actress is in a good place thanks to family, friends and her new boyfriend Alan Finkelstein.
With her personal life on an upswing, Helgenberger has contemplated leaving CSI after season eleven ends. “It will be one of the sadder days in my life when I leave,” Helgenberger told People magazine. Next season, she added, “We’re talking maybe [only] doing a few episodes.” That will leave her time to pursue other roles. “The older you get, the more comfortable you become with who you are and who you’re continuing to become,” she said. “I’m looking forward to the next chapter.”
CSI Files previously reported that New York Jets football coach Rex Ryan and general manager Mike Tannenbaum would appear in an upcoming episode of CSI: New York. Their roles are very small: Ryan only says a few lines, and Tannenbaum has a single line in the episode. However, that’s more than they thought they would have. “Mike and I had no idea that we were actually going to do some lines,” Ryan explained to NewYorkJets.com. “We thought we were just going to be extras.” He added, “We had a lot of fun. It’s great to be with such talented guys like Eddie Cahill (Don Flack) and Gary Sinise (Mac Taylor).”
