    CBS is not looking ate nding this franchise any time soon.

    Not even one of them.

    CBS, what about an episode of CSI or CSI: NY that would include the Miami team (at least a few of them) in order to give a more satisfied conlusion to the fans?

  • Anthony Parello (AP076)

    What conclusion were CSI:Miami fans waiting for? From what I understand there were no outstanding threads requiring finishing. Just Close your eyes and imagine them continuing to solve crimes in 40 minutes as they did for years.

    The crossover program idea worked for Hawaii Five and NCIS: Los Angeles several months ago. I expect there will be more crossover series in the future for CBS, (and probably other networks who know a good thing when they see it). Maybe a crossover between CSI: NY and Blue Bloods, both set in NYC, especially when dealing with Hurricane Sandy and it’s aftermath. There might even be several CBS fictional shows set in NYC that deal with Hurricane Sandy and have a crossover links. It was a disaster that NYC is still recovering from. Similar to New Orleans after Hurricane Katrina.

    Makes me wonder whether CSI:NY are seeing cancellation looming over the horizon and this is their attempt to boost their ratings

    Crossover episodes have been a staple of broadcast TV for years. CBS did it with the CSIs several times, with the NCISs, with CSI and Without a Trace, with Cold Case and CSI: NY, among many other shows. ABC regularly does crossovers between Grey’s and PP. The L&Os had crossover episodes with each other and at least one between the original and Hill Street Blues

    and at least one between the original and Hill Street Blues

    Holly, your point is correct but Hill Street Blues ended a couple of years before L&O started. Pretty sure the crossover you meant was with Homicide Life on the Streets (Munch).

  • Blake Williams

    How about a crossover with Elementary and either CSI:NY or Blue Bloods ?

    Or how about a case that starts on Vegas and is solved on CSI ?

    I would like another Hawaii Five-0 nad NCIS:LA crossover…..

  • Duncey

    I love this idea as this will be great for both shows maybe even add a spark. I know the storyline with Mac’s girlfriend has been a bit of a mystery since the season started so this will add even more suspense to it.

    Like somebody said before it worked out really well for 5-0 and NCIS: LA last season. In my opinion 5-0 would be doing a lot better if they moved it to Tuesdays behind LA instead of getting buried every week against Castle.

    A full blown NCIS/NCIS: Los Angeles crossover would be interesting…

  • Holly


    They both start with an H and have to do with crime, what more do you want! :P

  • Herb Finn

    I’d like to see a CSI:NY and BLUE BLOODS cross-over flashing back to Hurricane Sandy and how it impacted both casts.

    A Vegas/CSI cross-over isn’t far fetched – a cold case from c.1960 is reopened – or even a “tip of the hat” cross over – a case involving/set at the Savoy c.2013.

  • CBSViewer

    A NCIS / CSI crossover would be interesting – A Marine is found dead in Las Vegas and Gibbs’ team joins Russell’s team to investigate. Together they discover that there’s something more complicated and dangerous behind all this.

  • CBSViewer

    @ Holly
    CBS also did it with JAG / NCIS (2003), CSI / Two and a Half Men (2008) and many others. I’d like to see a Supernatural / The Vampire Diaries on the CW (after all Sam and Dean had been sent a lot of time in other dimensions).

  • Kenny

    Still waiting on that SVU/Smash crossover…that will never happen but i think an SVU/CF is more likely.

  • jessica

    Blake Williams,
    When did you start reading my mind? I have been suggesting for a while now that a Vegas/CSI cross-over would be brilliant. CSI does a fair amount of cold cases so why not tie one into their other crime drama set in the city in the desert? It could even be the discovery of the body of the sheriff killed in ep 1 of Vegas. OK that might not work since it was broadcast a while ago. Crossing-over among the CSI shows just doesn’t seem so appealing as it was the first five times.

    the NCISDC/CSILV cross-over probably wouldn’t be done as it would put CSILV, CSINY, CSIMD, Cold Case, Without A Trace, JAG, NCISDC, NCISLA, and Hawaii Five-0 all in the same fictional universe. While not all of those shows are on-going these days it would put all of CBS’s most established crime dramas currently on their schedule into one universe. Something like a Blue Bloods/Elementary or Blue Bloods/CSINY or CSINY/Elementary cross-over would be better.

  • Cat

    With so many shows set in NYC the cross over possibilities could be endless. What about a character from CSI:NY, or Blue Bloods becoming a “Person Of Interest”?

  • Luke

    WOW @Blake & @Jessica…

    You clearly do not watch Vegas and/or CSI.

    Vegas is set in the 1960s; CSI is (now in) 2012.


  • Holly


    I think they both realize that, but CSI has done a few “old Vegas” episodes connecting modern cases with things that happened in the past (even gave Greg an obsession with old Vegas for exposition). Blake and Jessica are suggesting that CSI do one of those old Vegas episodes with connections to Lamb and the Savoy.

  • Pepper

    I actually really liked the H50/NCIS LA crossover…I might tune in for this
