Renewed for a twelfth season, the crime procedural moves to Wednesdays.
May 18, 2011
CSI is changing nights for the first time in 10 years. CBS announced the change today when it released its 2011-2012 television schedule, confirming the show's return for a twelfth season.
Premiering back in 2000, CSI: Crime Scene Investigation has been one of the network's top rated shows over the years, spawning two successful spin-offs in CSI: Miami and CSI: NY, both of which are returning in the Fall for their tenth and eighth seasons respectively.
When CSI returns in the Fall, it will move to Wednesdays at 10:00pm rather than its regular Thursday night slot. It will be preceded by Survivor at 8:00pm and Criminal Minds at 9:00pm.
