Inside Move: ‘CSI: Miami’ snares Who

Rockers to perform theme song

The superstitious folks at CBS aren’t taking any chances with the much-anticipated “CSI” spinoff “CSI: Miami.”

When the CBS Prods/Alliance Atlantis skein bows tonight, viewers will hear a familiar band performing the theme song: the Who.

Original Thursday smash features the group’s classic tune “Who Are You.” On Friday, lawyers for the Eye and Alliance Atlantis finally sealed a deal for the rights to another Who classic, the somehow appropriate “Won’t Get Fooled Again.”

Eye execs are taking a page out of the Dick Wolf playbook with their song selection. Wolf uses a slightly different version of the original “Law & Order” theme on spinoff skeins “Special Victims Unit” and “Criminal Intent.”
