If you watched last night, we found out DB's real first name. Or was that revealed earlier in the season?
Decent episode but I saw ending coming. Shue joined the cast. She seemed to have good chemistry with DB and Greg. I don't think she talked to the other CSIs.

I got caught up on Marg's last two shows. Pretty good farewell shows. I liked all the nods to Catherine's past. I thought the goodbye scene was tacked on though.

The Shue character does not bode well for this series. How long will she and DB smirk at each other?

I almost laughed myself out of my chair when I saw that it was 'Diebenkorn'.

I thought Shue was pretty good, but we'll see how well her character develops. She starred in my favorite movie of all time, so she gets a lot of latitude from me...

Amnesia: thought you were going to refer to "Back to the Future". Wasn't she Michael J. Fox's girl in both of them? Give her a few more episodes..

No, she played Jennifer in 2 and 3, some other actress played her in the first one.

Whenever I think Elizabeth Shue I think of the first movie I saw her in - Adventures in Babysitting. She was super hot in Palmetto though.

Anyway, I liked this week's ep.

Lea Thompson was in BttF 1. She was in the news today saying something about her interest in a BttF Broadway show...

Shue was really good in Hollow Man.
We'll see what they do with her on CSI. I wonder how they keep coming up with ideas for cases.

I'm trying to decide if she might be DB's sister, or perhaps sister -in-law. There is much more going on there for them to explore. She seems to fit right in, CSI is taking a page from Law and Order with the revolving cast, it served them well for 20 years.

I tuned in just for Shue and it didn't disappoint. Glad to see her in something since... uh, The Saint? (for me anyway)

Shue to me will always be Ali in The Karate Kid. Gotta say, it's been a while since I've seen her last. Damn she looks much older now.

Yes, definitely curious as to the background between them. A lot of very pointed dialog between them so far.

Maybe she'll wind up being a serial killer that only targets other serial killers.

Looks like I'll be watching less TV....

Nielsen Notes (Broadcast)
Dim outlook for a longtime staple: Cops
Two of the top police procedurals are at risk of cancellation
By Toni Fitzgerald, Media Life Magazine - Feb. 15, 2012

Years ago it seemed the networks couldn't air enough police procedurals like "Law & Order" and "CSI," but that is no longer the case.

While the "NCIS" programs continue to thrive, the only broadcast show left in the "Law & Order" franchise may be canceled this May, and at least one, if not two, "CSI" editions are also in danger.

All three shows have put up series-low numbers this season. NBC's "Law & Order: Special Victims Unit" is averaging a 2.1 adults 18-49 rating this season in the Wednesday 10 p.m. timeslot, third among the Big Three in the hour.

"CSI: NY," now in its eighth season, is averaging a 1.7 rating on Friday night, where it is tied for first in its 9 p.m. timeslot with NBC's "Grimm."

And "CSI: Miami" is averaging a 2.2 at 10 p.m. Sunday, down a full point from what it averaged two seasons ago, when it aired on Mondays.

Shows become more expensive to produce as they age, with stars' salaries and production costs rising. When ratings start to drop into the low 2s and high 1s, most aging shows are no longer worth the price.

If any are canceled, it should come as no surprise.

CBS Entertainment President Nina Tassler said during the Television Critics Association tour last month that "CSI: NY" could be gone after this season, because it's simply not pulling strong enough numbers.

Bob Greenblatt, who took over as NBC Entertainment chairman last year, does not have a history with "SVU," which had been running for a decade before he took over the network. And Greenblatt already canceled one "L&O" show, "Law & Order: Los Angeles," last May.

"CSI: Miami" has the highest ratings of the three and so might be safe for one more season. But it seems doubtful that two more seasons are a possibility, not with ratings dropping the way they have.

Of the three, "SVU" seems most likely to be axed. The show lost its male lead last year, Christopher Meloni, and the drama has undeniably suffered creatively without him.

Should "SVU" be canceled, it would mark the first time in more than two decades that NBC has been without a "L&O" on its schedule.

"NCIS" is the only cop franchise that continues to thrive, and one reason is because the original is much younger than the original "CSI" and "L&O," as is its spinoff.

If CBS has a strong pilot season, both could be gone...

Elisabeth Shue did an OK job this week.

Nothing about her character stood out, I think. Other than than the chain saw part
Will be interesting to see where this leads.

Good episode as well. Never heard of a house being stolen.

I think I might tune in every week now, I don't know what's keeping me around since there's really not THAT much of Shue.

I keep watching the show because it is well produced (except for an occasional bad script which didn't use to happen). I was skeptical about Danson but I think he has done a remarkable job in his role.
