CSI: Crime Scene Investigation and NCIS are both nominated for an International TV Audience Award in the Drama category at the upcoming 54th Monte-Carlo Television Festival. The third nominee in the category is another CBS series, last summer’s smash hit Under the Dome. The International TV Audience Awards recognize the shows with the highest viewing numbers worldwide. CSI has taken home the award five times, most recently in 2012 (previously 2011, 2010, 2008 and 2007).
In addition to the nominations, several actors from CSI, NCIS, NCIS: Los Angeles and Criminal Minds are scheduled to appear at the festival. The list currently includes CSI’s Ted Danson (DB Russell), Eric Szmanda (Greg Sanders) and Wallace Langham (David Hodges); Emily Wickersham (Ellie Bishop) from NCIS; NCIS: LA actor Miguel Ferrer (Owen Granger); and Criminal Minds’ AJ Cook (JJ Jareau).
