The franchise offers three new episodes this week.

On Monday at 10:00pm ET/PT, the team deals with an old nemesis in "Chip/Tuck":

A murder case involving extreme plastic surgery leads Horatio to Ron Saris, who is alive and seeking revenge on Julia.

CSI: New York tries to solve a case without a body in "The Past, Present and Murder", Wednesday at 10:00pm ET/PT:

When a man falls 52 stories to his death, and his body goes missing after it hits the ground, with no body to process, the CSIs must treat this strange development as a missing persons case.

David Von Ancken directed five previous episodes of New York, including "Personal Foul" from last season. Sam Humphrey has seven writing credits for the show, most recently for "Help".

Thad Luckinbill was in the CSI episode "Bang-Bang".

Things are out of this world for CSI: Crime Scene Investigation on Thursday at 9:00pm ET/PT in "A Space Oddity":

When Hodges and Wendy run into each other at a science fiction convention for one of their favorite classic television shows, they end up investigating the murder of one of their beloved actors.

Battlestar Galactica's Michael Nankin directed the episode, which is a nod to the sci-fi series. The story was written by executive producer Naren Shankar, who has 39 writing credits for the show, including the 200th episode "Mascara". Former Battlestar writers David Weddle and Bradley Thompson penned the teleplay for "A Space Oddity", which is their third writing credit since becoming supervising producers on the show. Their last script was for "Kill Me if You Can".
