According to TV Line, the fifteenth season of CSI: Crime Scene Investigation will consist of 18 episodes, instead of the usual 22. The site reports that the decision to trim the episode order was mainly based on the network’s inventory of shows (including the upcoming spinoff, CSI: Cyber), rather than CSI’s ratings.

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.
