‘CSI: Miami’ to hit RTL beach

Episodes to start airing April 19

BERLIN — Germany’s leading commercial web, RTL Television, has nabbed “CSI: Miami” from its subsid channel Vox as it pumps up drama to combat sinking ratings.

RTL will air “CSI: Miami” Tuesdays at 8:15 p.m. beginning April 19.

It’s a change of pace for the web, which once prided itself on a primetime lineup filled with inhouse series that garnered more viewers than U.S. skeins. RTL usually relegates Hollywood shows such as “Smallville” to weekend afternoon slots or passes them on to Vox, which showcases primarily U.S. fare, including “Boston Public,” “The District” and “Judging Amy.” However, RTL does air “Monk” and vintage favorites “Quincy” and “Columbo” in primetime.

RTL has cut fiction in the past few years to focus more on reality programming. Pubcaster ARD displaced RTL as the most watched broadcaster last year and continues to maintain the lead.

VOX keeps “CSI” and “CSI: NY.”
