'CSI' Is the Most-Watched Show In the World

CSI, Jorja Fox, Laurence FishburneIt appears the inability to change the channel during daylong procedural cable marathons isn't just an American phenomenon -- how else can you explain the news that 'CSI: Crime Scene Investigation' is the number one most-watched TV show in the entire world?

For the third time in the past four years, 'CSI' received the International Television Audience Award for a Drama TV Series at the Monte Carlo TV Festival, Zap2It reports. That means the CBS series had the highest ratings across five continents and 68 countries in 2010 for an astounding 73.8 million viewers, according to Eurodata TV Worldwaide statistics.

The crime-solving series will see several changes as it heads into its 12th season. Star Laurence Fishburne opted not to renew his contract after two seasons with the show, and after a long reign Thursday nights at 10PM, 'CSI' is moving to Wednesdays at 10PM. It'll be paired with CBS stalwart 'Survivor' and the crime drama 'Criminal Minds.'



Tell us: Do you still watch 'CSI'? Are you surprised it is the number one show in the world?

I don't care for CSI anymore. I did in the first 5 seasons. However, the story lines changed. What did it for me was the miniatures that "Grissom" was involved in. I watch CSI:NY also but love CSI:Miami the best. I too am surprised that the world isn't watching NCIS. I think it is too early for NCIS:LA to catch on. I do wish that Criminal Minds and its spinoff would go away. They are way too graphic for my taste. If we were voting I would vote on canning those mindless sitcoms. Aside from that, I spend a lot of viewing on CBS, none on the other major networks.

Last time I looked, the Mentalist has been on Thursday night at 10:00 pm, like for the last 2 years???

I also love CSI (I prefer CSI New York, however). Criminal Minds is my favorite. I hope that CBS doesn't mess with the line up again. They did this year and I miss a few shows I loved because of it.

Better re-runs of such quality than first runs of the usual crap.

I have watched CSI since its beginning. It is an incredible viewing experience. Great cast and story lines. Always leaves you guessing. Congratulations to CBS for the fine quality of its programming. Also kudos for NCIS and NCIS N.Y. Love re-runs of all three. Better re-runs of such quality than first runs of the usual crap.

WHAT? Isn't NCIS AND NCIS/LA SHOWN all over the world? Can't be true that ANY show can beat NCIS.

I will watch CSI if I have nothing else to watch, at the rate the TV stations are going 'll be watching more of CSI. I think it's a good show, good story line and good acting, but I prefer my other shows over CSI.
