CBS Renews Ted Danson, and By Extension, CSI

  • 41comments

There's nothing like a safe piece of obviousness to get the day started off as normal as can be and keep the boat steady! CBS has renewed its long-running procedural CSI: Crime Scene Investigation for a millionth season, because CSI will be around long after your great-grandchildren have been enslaved by the alien lizardmen of Gorthax. This next round will actually be the fourteenth season of the drama, and expect it to find a primo slot in CBS's 2013-2014 fall schedule. 

The big news here is actually that CBS has re-signed series star Ted Danson to a contract extension, and he'll be back to play CSI Night Shift Supervisor D.B. Russell for a third consecutive go-round. Danson took over as boss of the crew after Laurence Fishburne left CSI at the end of Season 11. Fellow cast members Elisabeth Shue, George Eads, Jorja Fox, Eric Szmanda, Paul Guilfoyle, and Robert David Hall will also be back.    

What do you think, can D.B. Russell even carry Gil Grissom's jock strap?
