CBS Attempts Record-Breaking ‘World CSI Day’

Thursday, February 26th, 2015

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.

Thursday, February 19th, 2015

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 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.”

Wednesday, February 11th, 2015

CBS Announces ‘CSI:Cyber’ Premiere Date, Tentative ‘CSI’ Finale

Friday, December 5th, 2014

CSI Files previously reported that CSI: Cyber would take over the 10:00pm ET/PT timeslot on Sundays, following CSI: Crime Scene Investigation’s season 15 finale.

The new series Battle Creek will take over CSI’s timeslot starting March 1. This is two weeks after the tentative finale for CSI season 15, which is scheduled to air on Sunday, February 15. (This leaves some leeway for CSI, which could be preempted due to NFL doubleheaders on December 21 and/or December 28. Please note that the CSI finale date is not official.)
