    Wow to those promos! Dare I hope? The last writers made me a bit of a cynic, lol, but now I'm back on board, and excited. It looks as if GSR might be saved after all. :)

    The live ratings don't mean squat at this point. But I do think it will go out big if you include all means of streaming, and on demand. It's probably gotten some new fans with it being available on Hulu, etc; and it will, no doubt, bring back some older ones that had left.

    I haven't watched for a while, but it truly is the end of an era. It will be a little strange not having Nick in it, but I've been missing Warrick for a long time, too.
    Here's hoping this finale will end the series on a high note and GSR will get a final happy ending.

    They could airing this series finale like Kitty in more than 173 countries but probably there's no time for doing this. And results from DVR's could be really big.

    I think I'll have to watch it online. So far there is no air date for Germany. CSI:Cyber is currently on air here and will run till November/December, I guess. Maybe we'll get the finale for Christmas :)

    In some countries they'll show it anything within 24 hours to a week after the original air date, but in some cases it's on subscription TV only, thus not accessible to everyone. Yep, it's going to have to be online for us in Europe.

    In Poland AXN show series finale probably in January/February 2016 cause they always starts season at this time. But maybe, because of ending, they will show earlier. In other network I don't even know if Polsat show 9th season of CSI: NY. They show 10th season of Miami in probably autumn 2014 so the fastess network to show is AXN. Don't have the idea when and if they want airing Cyber but I worry for title for this cause they changed titles in Poland, but Cyber on AXN is CSI: Cyber.
    I defininetly will be watching in Monday morning or evening it depends of free time :D

    Yesterday Paul Guilfoyle and Robert David Hall sweetly shaded the fact George Eads was absent, that was quite funny :D
    It was so good to see all of them for the last time at a panel ! I will miss them all :(

    it already is, if you know what to look for. CSI was the mothership, it single handedly popularized the forensic drama genre, and procedural format. Sure other shows might have done it better at times, but CSI paved the way for it.

    I think Sookie meant the finale movie will not be "timeless." I agree it's a rather ignominious end to the series. But they did the same with Miami.

    As for being a timeless series, perhaps. Don't forget that ABC passed completely, and CBS almost passed. When Bruck and Zuiker went to Nina Tassler, CBS's development plate had already been filled for that year. They only got in the door because Les Moonves knew Touchstone was producing the show at the time (Bruck's film company), and that CBS would not have to pay for the series' costs, just for the air rights. Nina liked the show because it reminded her of the first excellent crime/laboratory procedural, "Quincy" with Jack Klugman (which ran for 8 seasons in its own right). I recall her line was, I love a good autopsy.

    ABC stupidly passed on this show. Bruck was Disney's highest-grossing director at the time. And many inside ABC wanted the show. Among them was a young executive named Lloyd Braun...yes, the same Lloyd Braun that Larry David used as a character in "Seinfeld." But Eisner wasn't big on TV shows for other networks, and was wary that Bruck would go way over budget. Never mind that, if CSI had flopped, i would create a gaping hole in ABC's rival network.

    CBS ordered a pilot since they weren't fronting the production cost. Bruck lined up a non-ABC-affiliated production company, Alliance Atlantis, who pre-sold syndication rights in Europe to pay for the show. The pilot was a success.
