'New York' Premiere Postponed Due To Bush Speech

By Carolina
September 14, 2005 - 2:36 PM

This Thursday night, President George Bush will conduct a live speech that has networks scurrying to re-arrange their schedules.

The president will address the nation from The White House to discuss the destruction and consequent chaos and finger-pointing caused by Hurricane Katrina, which slammed the Gulf Coast and destroyed the city of New Orleans just two weeks ago. The primetime speech is set to air at 9 p.m., or during the regular CSI timeslot.

This has propelled CBS and other networks to hastily re-arrange their schedules only a few days before premiere week. CBS had originally intended to air the two-hour CSI finale "Grave Danger" on Thursday night at 9 p.m., but the network has now decided to air one or two other episodes of the show after the speech, depending on its length. "Grave Danger" has been pushed back and will now air Wednesday September 21st, or one night before the show premieres.

Which makes CSI: New York the biggest victim of CBS's schedule shift. The show's premiere episode, "Summer in the City," was originally scheduled to air during the timeslot that will now be occupied by the repeat of "Grave Danger." Though the CSI episode will begin at 9 p.m. it'll run for two hours, overlapping CSI: New York's 10 p.m. timeslot. Fans of New York will now have to wait until September 28th at 10. p.m. to see the premiere.
