Two new Facebook profiles have been created for CSI's former leading man William Petersen (Gil Grissom) and new leading man Laurence Fishburne (Dr Ray Langston).

Consider Billy and Consider Fish allow CSI viewers with Facebook accounts to support Petersen and Fishburne as possible nominees in the Outstanding Lead Actor in a Drama Series category for the 61st Primetime Emmy Awards later this year. Fans who would like to see Petersen considered for an Emmy Award for his "Triumphant Exit" from the series can friend "Consider Billy". "Consider Fish" is for fans that would like to see Fishburne considered for an Emmy for his "Brilliant Entrance".

CSI viewers on Facebook can also participate on the official website with ease now that CBS has launched "Facebook Connect". This allows fans of CBS programmes like CSI to log into CBS.com using their Facebook information. When these fans participate on CBS.com, they will be able to publish their actions on Facebook, giving them the opportunity to share their experience on the CBS website with their social network.

"Television is a social experience, and with 'Facebook Connect,' it's faster and easier than ever for CBS Television fans to share their thoughts and reactions about their favorite shows with their friends and family on Facebook," CBS.com Vice President Bill Binenstock said in a press release. "Facebook Connect" also makes it fast and easy for fans to join the community and register for games and contests on CBS.com.

Fans can search for "Consider Billy" and "Consider Fish" to find these profiles on Facebook. The original information about "Facebook Connect" is from CBS Press Express.
