The number of new episodes has dwindled down to one.

CSI: Miami aired a repeat of "Bang, Bang, Your Debt" this past Monday at 10:00pm EST, and CSI: Crime Scene Investigation will air a repeat of "Lying Down With Dogs" on Thursday at 9:00pm EST. With the first two series in full repeat mode as the writers' strike continues, CSI: New York is the only member of the franchise with a new episode to air: "Playing With Matches", which airs tonight at 10:00pm EST:

A drowning victim falls out of a self-cleaning restroom and what first looks like a freak accident turns into foul play and the CSIs must investigate the hows and whys of the case.

This is the fourth episode of New York directed by Christine Moore. Her most recent episode for the show was "Down the Rabbit Hole" earlier this season. "Playing With Matches" was penned by Bill Haynes, who has four previous CSI: NY writing credits to his name. "Comes Around" in season three was Haynes' most recent episode.

  • Jason Chambers as Mercury
  • Nicole Lenz as Concrete Cowgirl/Sandra
  • Reid Scott as Seth Riggins
  • Aaron Behr as Vinnie Parson
  • Brad Graiff as Attorney
