'Outside Man' Promo - copyright CBS CBS last Wednesday released the trailer for "Outside Man" the first CSI: New York november sweeps episode.

Sweeps are the ratings measurement periods during which television networks pull out all the stops to attract as many viewers and thus convince advertisers that their money is well spent. This year's first sweeps period started on Thursday the 4th of November, meaning that CSI: New York will have its first entry next Wednesday, when Mac assigns Danny and Aiden to one of the team's toughest cases yet: a multiple homicide in which employees of a restaurant are found shot to death with plastic bags over their heads. As they examine the clues, all signs point to an "inside" job but not to a suspect. Meanwhile, Mac and Stella investigate the death of a man found dead in his bed, whose amputated lower leg led them to him.

The trailer can now be streamed from the official CBS web site. For those of you with slower connections, here's a transcript:
