CBS.com Launches 'CSI: Miami' BlogBy Carolina

Last month, CBS launched the official CSI: Miami blog.
It's the Eye network's newest attraction, an interactive page intended to attract more viewers and offer fans a behind-the-scenes insight into the show's development. "Blogs are a great way to bring the millions of viewers who enjoy our programming into the creative process," said Nancy Tellem, president of CBS Paramount Network Television Entertainment Group.
CSI: Miami is one of the first CBS shows to receive its very own blog. Executive Story Editor Corey Miller will update every week, usually before CSI: Miami airs, to talk about the origin of the storylines and cases, offer a behind the scenes look, and reveal where the writers' ideas come from. Miller is also accepting questions from the CSI: Miami fans.
"I must admit to being a blogging virgin," Miller said in his first entry. "And I'm not ashamed to admit it. A year ago, the word blog would have sounded like a Sniglet."
Other "blogged" shows include Ghost Whisperer and Survivor. In the future, CBS.com will create blogs for Threshold, NCIS and The Amazing Race: Family Edition. No word yet on whether CSI or New York will be documented in this manner.
Head over to the official CSI: Miami website to read all of Miller's entries thus far, and check every week to read what he has to say about the new season.
