I thought last night's episode was pretty good. At least Tony & Zeva started showing a little chemistry (till the phone rang).
Because it has a big audience that has been keeping it at #1 for several years now. Also the demos for it like many CBS shows skew older so those folks are less likely to drop out of the show.
But I don't think the quality of the episodes is what it was in seasons 3-6 which to me is when the show really started to find itself.
It's too much of a formula for me. Opening scene is 90% of the time the victim being found dead or dropping dead.
They always have the scene of them standing around the big plasma screen to discuss the victim and who he was. That scene alone annoys me now.
What keeps me watching the show is the interaction of the main characters, the plot of the week is totally secondary.
