The CBS Eye-lert system is used to alert fans to primetime schedule delays caused by NFL doubleheader games on Sundays, and the system will provide viewers with a new option starting September 14. This expansion will now enable iOS users to receive mobile updates using the CBS App, in addition to the existing updates via on-air graphics, a ticker on CBS.com, and posts on Twitter and Facebook. “The upgraded CBS Eye-lert system will expand its reach by millions of viewers,” said Kelly Kahl, Senior Executive President of CBS Primetime. “We’re using multiple platforms to update our audience in the most effective ways possible.”
The primetime schedule will be pushed back thirty minutes in the Eastern and Central timezones on NFL doubleheader weekends. This means CSI: Crime Scene Investigation will start at 10:30pm ET (9:30pm CT) on October 5, October 26, November 2, November 23, November 30, December 21 and December 28. (There will be no change to the schedule in the Mountain and Pacific timezones.)

Question: I’m a big fan of Patricia Arquette and am anxiously awaiting her new CSI: Cyber series. I was disappointed to read that CSI: Cyber won’t begin until all the original CSI episodes have aired in its new Sunday time slot. Does that mean Cyber won’t start until May, or will the original CSI have a shortened season? — Victoria
Matt Roush: The idea as I understand it is to run CSI’s 15th season straight through until early spring with no repeats, and that would most likely be a full-season order of 22, which means Cyber would probably get the short order of its initial 13-episode pickup without a back-nine — the spring tryout (probably starting in March or thereabouts) presumably leading to a full-season order for year two if all goes well.
CSI Files previously reported that the CSI: Crime Scene Investigation spinoff CSI: Cyber had not been picked up by CBS. However, it has now been announced that the show will go to series for 2014-2015, with former CSI: New York executive producer Pam Veasey expected to come on board as showrunner. Here is a tweet from producer Jerry Bruckheimer confirming the news:
Thrilled to have CSI: CYBER on CBS next season. #CSI

CBS has picked up the New Orleans-based NCIS spinoff starring Scott Bakula (NCIS Special Agent Dwayne Cassius Pride). The CSI: Crime Scene Investigation spinoff starring Patricia Arquette (FBI Special Agent Avery Ryan) was not picked up, but Deadline reports the network is still in talks and might decide to take the show to series. TV Wise suggests the tentatively-titled CSI: Cyber could be picked up for mid-season, using The Who’s “I Can See For Miles” as the theme song.
Update: CSI: Cyber has been picked up.
CBS has revealed the official schedule for this season’s finales. CSI: Crime Scene Investigation will air the final episode of season 14 on Wednesday, May 7 at 10:00pm ET/PT.

CBS has announced the early renewals of 20 of its most popular series for the 2014-2015 season, including CSI: Crime Scene Investigation, NCIS, NCIS: Los Angeles and Criminal Minds.
CBS Chief Les Moonves revealed that the network is considering 18 pilots for next season, including the potential NCIS and CSI spinoffs, and they expect to add two dramas and two comedies to the schedule. Of those 18 pilots, Moonves said, “you only need four winners” so “you’d better be damn good or you’re not going to get on.”

CSI: Miami and CSI: New York have both been cancelled, but the CSI franchise might not be done growing. CBS has announced that an episode of CSI: Crime Scene Investigation airing this spring will serve as the backdoor pilot for another potential spinoff. In a departure from the franchise’s usual formula, the new series will focus on cyber crimes, inspired by the work of CyberPsychologist Mary Aiken. The main character is Avery Ryan, the Special Agent in Charge of the FBI’s Cyber Crime Division in Quantico, Virginia. Here’s the logline for the spinoff:
Technology, as we know it, has amplified human behavior to the point where faceless criminals are committing crimes at global proportions with a touch of a button.
The pilot will be written by CSI creators Anthony Zuiker, Carol Mendelsohn and Ann Donahue. Zuiker, Mendelsohn and Donahue will serve as executive producers, along with CSI producer Jerry Bruckheimer and Executive Producer Jonathan Littman. Aiken is also listed as a producer on the project.
