The entertainment finance firm Content Partners LLC has acquired a fifty-percent interest in the CSI franchise from an affiliate of Goldman Sachs. This makes Content Partners an equal stakeholder, with CBS Corporation owning the other fifty-percent interest in the franchise. This type of transaction provides the sellers with liquid assets; in exchange, Content Partners now owns half of the future production company revenue from old and new episodes of all three series.
CSI Files previously reported that CBS would fill CSI: New York’s Friday 9:00pm ET/PT timeslot with the new crime drama Golden Boy. However, the network has decided to switch things up, and Golden Boy will return to Tuesdays at 10:00pm ET/PT starting next week. CBS will shift the freshman drama Vegas to the Friday 9:00pm ET/PT slot on April 5, following the network’s coverage of the NCAA Men’s Basketball tournament.

The latest episode of CSI: New York, “Today is Life”, shared the top spot on Friday, February 22. The crime drama ended its shortened ninth season with a timeslot-winning 9.39 million viewers, which is up from the penultimate episode, but this still marks one of the lower scores this season. The second half of a two-hour Dateline (6.65 million), Shark Tank (6.44 million), Touch (2.51 million), and a repeat of Cult (0.64 million) rounded out the hour. In the key 18-49 demographic prized by advertisers, Shark won the hour with a 1.8 rating/6 share. Dateline was next with 1.5/5. CSI: NY was even with last week’s 1.2/4, which ties the lowest score the series has pulled in during season nine. Touch (0.7/2) and Cult (0.2/1) came in fourth and fifth, respectively.
CSI: New York’s leading man Gary Sinise (Mac Taylor) wrote a column for the Chicago Sun-Times to coincide with tonight’s season nine finale, “Today is Life”. The actor shares a bit about the episode, and thanks the fans for tuning in over the past nine years. New York’s future remains uncertain right now, but there can be no doubt that Sinise is grateful for his time on the crime drama:
When I first signed on for the series in 2004, I had no idea how I’d feel if I ended up being fortunate enough to be a part of it for many years. Now, I can truly say that it’s been a gratifying experience, and that I’ve really enjoyed playing the character of Mac Taylor. He’s a man of integrity and strength and I’m proud to say that he’s based on many members of our police, fire and military communities. And working with our cast — Sela Ward (Jo Danville), Eddie Cahill (Don Flack), Anna Belknap (Lindsay Messer), Carmine Giovinazzo (Danny Messer), Hill Harper (Dr Sheldon Hawkes), AJ Buckley (Adam Ross), Robert Joy (Dr Sid Hammerback) and most recently, Natalie Martinez (Jamie Lovato) and Megan Dodds (Christine Whitney) — has been just wonderful. We have an amazing team of writers who continue to impress and I thank them all, as well as our fantastic crew, for another great season.

After nine seasons of playing Dr Sheldon Hawkes, Hill Harper is exiting CSI: NY. Once again on the bubble for renewal, Harper’s contract was up at the end of the current season and the actor is moving on to USA Network’s Covert Affairs as a series regular. Harper first appeared in the backdoor pilot back in CSI: Miami‘s second season as a New York medical examiner and became a full-fledged CSI in the show’s second season. His last episode will air tonight, which is also potentially the series’ last.
This mark’s the third major exit during the show’s run–Vanessa Ferlito left in Season Two and former leading lady Melina Kanakaredes departed at the end of Season Six.

The latest episode of CSI: New York, “Blood Actually”, shared the top spot on Friday, February 15. The Valentine’s Day-themed installment pulled in 8.50 million viewers, which is the crime drama’s lowest number since October 5. However, this was still enough to beat the second hour of Dateline (6.73 million), Shark Tank (6.43 million), Touch (2.53 million), and the second hour of the CW’s showing of the movie Paper Heart (0.41 million). In the key 18-49 demographic prized by advertisers, Tank won the hour with a 1.8 rating/6 share at 9:00pm. Dateline was next with 1.4/4, and CSI: NY came in third with a 1.2/4 that matches the lowest score of the season so far. Touch (0.7/2) and Heart (0.2/1) rounded out the hour.
