- Gary Sinise (Mac Taylor) and the Lt. Dan Band are taking the summer hiatus to reach troops around the world with their music. "We just got back from a tour overseas.

They’re tough and strong, and we need to back them up as much as we can," said the actor.
- Adam Rodriguez (Eric Delko) was recently nominated for an Imagen Award for this work on CSI: Miami. But the actor lost to Freddy Rodriguez, who snatched the statuette for his work on Six Feet Under. The Imagen Awards celebrate the work of Latino actors in the television and movie industries.
- And Rodriguez was recently featured on TV Guide's Fitness Secrets of Your Fave Stars. The actor admitted to staying feet by running on sand. Meanwhile, co-star Emily Procter (Calleigh Duquesne) keeps her figure with Pilates.

- Jonathan Togo (Ryan Wolfe) has settled quite nicely on CSI: Miami. But the actor nearly ended on CSI: New York instead, as he originally auditioned for that spin-off. I thought there was no chance I'd ever be cast on one of these shows. My favorite TV cop is Columbo. But the guys on CSI, they're very tall and handsome - like action heroes." Thanks to Elyse for the tidbit.

The finale was the highest rated show across all channels for that entire week on French television. “This is huge," said Laurent Storch, the head of the French network. “We are thrilled with the prime time performance of Les Experts: Miami. French audiences have tuned in consistently for the series in its 4 p.m. slot on Sundays."
- Meanwhile, the CSI Effect continues to cause trouble in courts. "Juries are coming to expect DNA in every case - a house break where there is a spot of blood on a window, at a scene where a hair has been found, on a cigarette butt, on a Coke can. In this state we just aren't in a position to produce that kind of evidence," said Cape and Islands District Attorney Michael O'Keefe.
- Ronald Grover of Business Week Online wishes Hollywood would receive a creative make-over. All you have to do is look at TV these days to know that imagination is alive and well in some corners of Hollywood (gosh, how I never thought I would write that sentence). CSI, 24, and Desperate Housewives show that something new is always out there for those who try hard enough to find it."
- The News & Advance recently studied the parental trends on television. "Crime-based dramas, like CSI and Without a Trace, do feature parents, but their children are only trotted out when the storyline calls for it. A lot of the teen-centered shows work the same way, using parents as set pieces who aren't brought out, or even introduced for that matter, until the kids need a lecture or to be bailed out of jail."
