CSI: Crime Scene Investigation actress Elisabeth Shue (Julie Finlay) is set to guest star in an episode of the upcoming Starz series Blunt Talk, which premieres this summer. The half-hour scripted comedy stars Patrick Stewart as Walter Blunt, “a British import intent on conquering the world of American cable news.” The 10-episode first season follows Blunt’s career “and the fallout from his well-intentioned, but mostly misguided decision-making, both on and off the air.” Shue will appear as a possible guest for Blunt’s nightly cable news show. There’s no information yet about when her episode will air.

Former CSI: Crime Scene Investigation actor George Eads (Nick Stokes) celebrates his birthday today, March 1. He was born on this day in 1967.
CBS has announced “World CSI Day”, a global event intended to help CSI: Crime Scene Investigation break the Guinness World Record for “Largest Ever TV Drama Simulcast”. (The current record is held by Doctor Who’s 50th anniversary episode, which was broadcast in 98 countries across six continents in November 2013.) “World CSI Day” will celebrate 15 years of the groundbreaking crime drama, as well as the premiere of the latest member of the franchise, CSI: Cyber. Here’s a quote from CSI creator Anthony Zuiker:
When CSI premiered, I had no idea it would become the sensational global franchise it is today. CSI has taken on Las Vegas, Miami, New York and now, with CSI: Cyber, we dive into the vast world of cyber crime, where we can instantly be connected to anyone, anywhere in the world at any time. I can’t think of a better way to kick off CSI: Cyber and celebrate 15 years of international success than with a worldwide simulcast.

Hulu has signed a multi-year agreement with CBS, which gives them exclusive subscription video on demand (SVOD) rights to more than 300 episodes of CSI: Crime Scene Investigation. This is the first time CSI has been licensed to an SVOD service, and fans with a Plus subscription will be able to watch earlier seasons of the show on Hulu.com starting in April. As the exclusive SVOD home to all episodes of CSI, Hulu will add full libraries of past seasons ahead of future series premieres.
“The original series from the most successful franchise in television history has been licensed to the SVOD market for the first time,” said Scott Koondel, Chief Corporate Content Licensing Officer for CBS Corporation. “This agreement and previous deals with our partners at Hulu further validates how well CBS procedural dramas perform on subscription services. And, at a time when the CBS Television Network is getting ready to premiere the next generation of the CSI franchise with CSI: Cyber, it’s very exciting to make available all 14 seasons of the show that started it all to Hulu subscribers and CSI’s passionate fan base.”
CSI: Crime Scene Investigation’s season 15 finale, “The End Game”, wrapped up the season-long Gig Harbor Killer storyline; it also featured the departure of original cast member George Eads, whose character Nick Stokes took a job opportunity in San Diego, California. “[A] big part of the finale is saying goodbye to Nick Stokes and George,” Executive Producer Don McGill told Zap2It. “I think there [was] a really great emotional kind of tear jerker ending, even as we have a little bit of a cliffhanger going. I hope people will really embrace the duality of that finale.”
Here’s the final scene, featuring flashbacks from earlier seasons of CSI:

As CSI Files previously reported, CBS will air the final two episodes of CSI: Crime Scene Investigation’s fifteenth season back-to-back on Sunday, February 15. During last night’s episode of NCIS, the network had an on-screen advertisement for the “series finale” of the crime drama, which was also reflected in some cable listings. CSI’s future is uncertain at this point in time, but CBS Executive Vice President of Communications Chris Ender posted these tweets clarifying that the “series finale” designation was a mistake:
Dear Twitter chatter. Eyeliner graphic promoting this weekend's #CSI mistakenly said "Series Finale." It's the "Season Finale."

@aysrick We would never cancel a show in a promo five days before broadcast, especially one that has been this important to the Network.
