Ok, we all now the story that the CSI franchise is getting old, and the future of one or two of them may be shaky because CBS has very little real estate for new programming. Also, with the original CSI now finishing fourth in its timeslot in terms of the valuable 18-48 demos, it is also highly likely that it will not be back on Thursdays next season. However, there is one other option that I would like CBS to consider - a CSI Sunday Wheel. Back in the 70's, NBC had this Mystery Wheel that consisted of series of alternating two-hour episodes of such classic shows as Columbo, McMillan & Wife, and McCloud. CBS could do this with the CSI's where they order 18 episodes of each series but have them written as nine two-hour episodes that could be stripped down to one hour episodes for both syndication and the international markets. That way, CSI would air one week, CSI:Miami the next, CSI:NY thereafter, etc. Not only would that free up space for other news shows and keep the CSI's on a regular production schedule to used as midseason replacements for any new shows that flop, but with each episode's being two hours, more viewers would be likely to stick with a two-hour episode that starts after the 9:00 hour rather than a one hour episode that starts after the 10:00 hour when there are sports overruns. In other words, it would give CBS the benefit of airing shows with loyal followings while also getting the benefits on the old CBS Sunday movie. So, what do you think? Would you prefer a CSI Sunday wheel over one or two of the series getting cancelled?
