CSI: Crime Scene Investigation (also known as CSI: Las Vegas and also abbreviated as CSI) is an American crime drama television series, which premiered on CBS on October 6, 2000. The show was created by Anthony E. Zuiker and produced by Jerry Bruckheimer. It is filmed primarily at Universal Studios in Universal City, California.
The series follows Las Vegas criminalists (identified as "Crime Scene Investigators" working for the Las Vegas Police Departement instead of the actual title of "Crime Scene Analysts" and "Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department") as they use physical evidence to solve grisly murders in this unusually graphic drama, which has inspired a host of other cop-show "procedurals". An immediate ratings smash for CBS, the series mixes deduction, gritty subject matter and popular characters. The network quickly capitalized on its hit with spin-offs CSI: Miami and CSI: NY.
CSI has been recognized as the most popular dramatic series internationally by the Festival de Télévision de Monte-Carlo, which has awarded it the "International Television Audience Award (Best Television Drama Series)" three times.
CSI's worldwide audience was estimated to be over 73.8 million viewers in 2009. In 2011, CSI is the most watched drama series in the world, again.
Anthony E. Zuiker has stated that there will be more seasons to come in the future. The show aired its 250th episode on May 5, 2011. On May 18, 2011, CBS renewed the series for a twelfth season, moving it to Wednesdays at 10/9c. Ted Danson will join the series, playing the new night-shift supervisor.
