Ted Danson, Gary Sinise doing 'CSI' crossover

CSI-CROSSOVER_510x317.jpg

The CSI team is going to the Big Apple.

CBS is planning CSI and CSI: NY cross-over episodes for February sweeps.

Across two hours, Detective Mac Taylor (Gary Sinise) will visit the CSI team in Las Vegas, while D.B. Russell (Ted Danson) will head to New York City.

CSI will kick things off on Wednesday, Feb. 6, with Taylor arriving in Las Vegas to surprise his girlfriend but learns she is missing. With her hotel room now a crime scene, he joins forces with Russell and his Vegas team in an effort to find her. The action continues on Friday, Feb. 8 on CSI: NY, where, according to the network, “the search for Mac’s girlfriend continues as Russell heads to New York to help Taylor, but even after apprehending one of the men responsible for Christine’s kidnapping, they still need to determine the motive and whether she is still alive. The case gets personal for Taylor as he wrestles with breaking police protocol in an effort to find the kidnappers.”

The strategy is the latest in a series of CBS crossovers, such as last season’s NCIS: LA crossover with Hawaii Five-0. Previously CSI had a crossover where then-star Laurence Fishburne appeared on all three of the franchise’s shows.

'Supernatural,' 'Scandal,' 'The Vampire Diaries,' 'CSI: NY': Find out what's next in the Spoiler Room

Hi, y’all! Happy almost-Halloween.

In between gathering scoops, I’m in the process of deciding what I’ll be wearing for the big night. So far, I’ve narrowed my options down to: an Observer, the Human Being, or bored single person. I know where I’m leaning but feel free to weigh in if you have a chance.

Meanwhile, make sure you’re emailing all your spoiler question to spoilerroom@ew.com or sending them via Twitter (@EWSandraG). Also, I’m taking other random TV questions via Vyou. I know, that’s a lot of me. Let’s move on:

‘SUPERNATURAL’: ‘THINGS QUICKLY FALL APART’
If you, like me, are still haunted by the image of Castiel calling out to Dean in Purgatory, sit back. I have some interesting intel for you.

While talking to Misha Collins about his charitable scavenger hunt (more about that here), he also confirmed a hunch we’d had about the last time Dean saw Cas. It was, in fact, while Dean was exiting Purgatory. But there’s much more to it than that. “That very moment is a pivotal moment. I think Dean is confused about what happened at that moment and won’t actually find out what happened then until episode 7,” he reveals. “It’s going to take a while to see that moment play out.” Suffice to say the truth hurts — especially on this show.

But when Cas does return topside, look for him to be “reinvigorated with a sense of purpose,” says Collins. “He essentially feels like he has to do good in order to right the wrongs of his past. So he starts to collaborate with Sam and Dean for that reason — so that he can continue to try to make things right. He’s no longer paying penance, really, because it’s no longer an act of suffering for him. But he’s doing his best to right the wrongs of his past.” Doing so won’t be as easy as he hopes, however. “He’s doing that in ways that help Sam and Dean and then, ultimately, it might also make life — as per usual with the Supernatural universe — complicated for Sam and Dean. At first, it seems like everything is hunky dory. But things quickly fall apart.”

CBS cancels 'CSI: Miami'

“It’s time for Miami … to go into retirement.”

YEEEEEEEEAAAAAAAHHHHH!

CBS has made its CSI decision: CSI: Miami is being cancelled after a rather incredible 10-season run. CSI: NY is expected to live on for a ninth season, though that’s not official yet.

Though Miami (10.8 million viewers, 2.5 among adults 18-49) had better ratings than NY (10.4 million, 1.9), as we’re sure learning this upfront season, the ratings mattered less than other elements like the show’s time slot (NY was fairly stable in a tougher Friday night gig vs. Miami struggling on Sundays) and the show’s age (the older the series, the more expensive its cast and producer deals).
