10 more episodes fill ‘CSI: NY’ slabs

Show surprised many by beating time period rivals

CBS has picked up a full season of “CSI: NY,” ordering 10 more episodes of the frosh drama hit.

Back orders usually consist of nine episodes, but CBS could always use an extra episode of “CSI: NY.” Show surprised many by beating its time period rival — NBC’s veteran skein “Law & Order” — out of the box.

After five episodes, “CSI: NY” has averaged 16.7 million viewers and a 6.2 rating/16 share in adults 18-49. That makes it the third-biggest new drama in both measurements, behind ABC’s “Desperate Housewives” and “Lost.”

Produced by CBS Prods., Jerry Bruckheimer TV and Alliance Atlantis, “CSI: NY” is a spinoff of the net’s “CSI: Miami” and the third member of the “CSI: Crime Scene Investigation” trilogy. Gary Sinise and Melina Kanakaredes star as forensic investigators in the Big Apple.

Eddie Cahill, Vanessa Ferlito, Carmine Giovinazzo and Hill Harper also star.

“CSI: NY” is exec produced by Jerry Bruckheimer, Anthony Zuiker, Carol Mendelsohn, Ann Donahue, Danny Cannon, Andrew Lipsitz and Jonathan Littman.

“CSI: NY” is the first — and possibly only — freshman drama to get a full-season pickup from the Eye. Net recently pulled new drama “Dr. Vegas,” while CBS’ other new drama, “Clubhouse,” was shipped to Saturdays after a disappointing start.
