I hope this is true, because changing this show from a criminal one to a romantic soap as has been rumored in this thread just simply can't be true. They stayed at the top because of the criminal puzzles, not because of romance. With all the rumored schmoop in the beginning fo the season, I will wait until ep 10 to tune back in. And I read spoilers to be forewarned. How about the casual viewers who tune into the soap, expecting CSI and getting tvue wuv? Will they return after possibly 4-6 eps of lovey dovey, plot hole show? I can't believe they are taking such risks because the show has to continue even after Grissom leaves. Logic tells me that they need to use known characters to rely on with such changes. At this rate I can't wait for Grissom to be gone. I never thought I'd say it but I will not miss him one iota.
