CBS averaged 6.6 million viewers and a 4.3 rating/7 share in primetime, beating out ABC's 5.75 million and 3.8/6. NBC (4.2 million, 2.7/5) edged FOX (4.05 million, 2.2/4) for third place overall.

The actress, who plays CSI Calleigh Duquesne on the hit CBS drama, is expecting her first child with musician Paul Bryan early in December. She broke the news to TV Guide Magazine on Monday. "We played around with the idea of my character being pregnant and the general consensus was, a pregnant woman shooting people might freak our audience out." And so, Procter plans to duck and cover. "We shot a frantic scene this week where people were running to escape," she says. "I just stood behind the biggest guy I could find." To Read More Click Here .

Carol Mendelsohn, boss of the flagship series, and Ann Donahue, who oversees the spin-off, have both signed overall deals keeping them atop the franchise for four more years.

CSI: Miami's Eva La Rue -- you might know her as CSI Natalia Boa Vista -- has tied the knot. Life & Style reports that she exchanged vows with her boyfriend, businessman Joe Cappuccio, in the Mexican town of Zihuatenejo on Saturday. "We could not have dreamt of a more perfect day," La Rue told the magazine. "Getting married in this beautiful location on the ocean with all of our family and friends is so special ... this is a day Joe and I will never forget." The marriage almost didn't happen: the two were engaged earlier last year, and were supposed to marry in June 2009, but they suddenly called off their engagement. They were separated for eight months until they reunited in November last year. The 43-year-old actress is still part of CSI: Miami's upcoming ninth season, which airs on a new Sunday night time slot on CBS in the fall. Source Here
Eddie Cibrian (Jesse Cardoza) won't be back for the ninth season of 'CSI: Miami.' According to the Ausiello Files, CBS passed on the option to renew Cibrian's contract. He joined 'CSI: Miami' in 2009 to fill the void left by the departing Adam Rodriguez (Eric Delko). However, following several guest spots in the eighth season original, cast member Rodriguez has re-signed to the show, and will be back full-time in the fall. Sources close to the police procedural series said that the Cibrian-Rodriguez changeover is due to the producers' creative decision to focus on the original core team. 'CSI: Miami' follows the work of a Miami forensics department headed by Horatio Caine (David Caruso). The first spin-off from 'CSI: Crime Scene Investigation,' it debuted on CBS in 2002 and has consistently been in the Top 20. However, the eighth season had the smallest audience so far, which may explain the decision to take the show back to basics and re-focus on the central characters. Cibrian's departure comes hot on the heels of news that producers on fellow CBS procedural drama 'Criminal Minds' have cut series regular A.J. Cook. They are also reducing the number of episodes that Paget Brewster will appear in, although she will remain a series regular. The ninth season of 'CSI: Miami' is due to air on CBS beginning in September. The show will move from its 10PM ET Monday time slot to Sunday at 10PM ET.
"The Bachelorette" helped ABC score a demographic victory on Monday, but CBS' lineup of reruns managed to snag a few more total viewers. FOX's "Lie to Me," meanwhile, improved on its summer debut last week, but the rest of the night's original scripted shows fell a bit. CBS' lineup delivered 7.5 million viewers and a 4.8 rating/8 share in households for the night, narrowly beating ABC's 7.4 million and 4.9/8. FOX (5.4 million, 3.3/6) finished third. NBC's 3.9 million viewers and 2.4/4 were good enough for fourth, and The CW (705,000, 0.5/1) was well back of the rest of the field. The top two switched places in the adults 18-49 demographic, with ABC's 2.3 rating topping CBS' 1.9. FOX, 1.6, edged NBC, 1.5, for third. The CW drew only a 0.3. To Read More Click Here .
