CBS's CSI franchise has traveled to many places: The flagship series is still keeping things safe in Las Vegas, CSI:NY protected the Big Apple for nine seasons, and CSI: Miami made sure bikinis were regulation size for 10 seasons. But there's one place CSI hasn't gone yet: the Internet! 

Not for long, though. According to TVLine, CBS is currently planning a new CSI spin-off that will focus on cyber crime, meaning that penis-pill pushers and Nigerian princes had better watch their IP addresses! The show will make its on-air debut as a planted spin-off/backdoor pilot on CSI, and follow female cyber crime specialist Avery Ryan as she double-clicks and scrolls her way to finding online justice. 

Expect a special episode of CSI: Whatever It Will Be Called to pop up later this season as part of regular ol' CSI. If the episode is well-received, CBS will order the spin-off to seres for the 2014-2015 TV season and continue to rake in the dough. I can't wait to see CSI fans to try and figure out what a Bitcoin is (does anyone know what a Bitcoin is?). 

So what should CBS call its new CSI spin-off? Here are a few suggestions for free:

  • CSI: AOL
  • CSI: How Do I Install Yahoo Mail?
  • CSI: Interwebz
  • CSI: LOLOMGWTF404
  • CSI: More Money for CBS

What do YOU want CBS to call it, and are you into the idea of a cyber crimes edition of CSI?

I welcome this spin-off only if its quality is more CSI NY and less CSI Miami. Let's wait and see.

C$I. I mean seriously, is network TV THAT bereft of decent programming ideas that ANOTHER spin off is in the works? That is of course a rhetorical question.

CSI: NBC televison shows unit

Lead character: So, what are your theories?
Another character: Well, obviously they just couldn't stop giving shows to people from the 80s. They also don't seem to want the Tonight Show to suceed.

Why is it being called "CSI" at all, aside from the opposite name drop for appeal? I mean, will they actually be Investigating Crime Scenes? Or will the CSI 'S' come to mean 'site', as in website?

How about:
- CSI: We can still use Windows XP, suckers! cause we're the cops!
- CSI: Surfing for Pirates

Sadly probably true but I really liked the nanite episode. It needs to continue to go more sci-fi and less procedural imo.

CSI: Darknet... because even though most viewers don't know what it is, it sounds cool. This may be why any show that wants to boost its cyber-cred invokes it as often as possible these days, like knowing the word makes them cooler somehow.

They're probably going to go with CSI: Cyber Crimes... keep it simple. And I'm not completely opposed to the idea. It technically can go beyond hacking and into, cyber bullying, human trafficking, pedophiles, etc. The internet is used for a lot these days.... But the show has to approach it the right way.

basically it'll be the same show with new actors doing the same cases, but with computers and less of the gore and less of the out and about stuff.... oh wait...

and you missed a c (for crime) which you can't leave out just because you want to

I know. However where are the studies that show the viewer actually needs or wants this programme. It looks like them left us out! I was a CSI, NSI, and like 3 years ago. I haven't watched any of these since that time ago. They are all effectively clones of each other and even what interesting way you might kill someone got really boring...

that looks stupid.

yes even ncis does but that's from jag not csi.

first thing i thought of before i read the full name description was you miss spelled crysis.

Actually crysis would work better if only it fitted!

Mmm, this show would be soooo technically inaccurate that it would be a nightmare to watch for the more informed audience...
But I really do not see it happening anyway.
