CSI Dethrones CSI Miami as #1 In The World

Number One Show
It’s official. David Caruso’s eyeglass-wearing, sideways-posing Horatio Caine and CSI Miami has been knocked off the top of the list of the most popular shows in THE WORLD. The news is enough to crack Horatio’s sunglasses, or at least create a minor earthquake in David Caruso’s me-niverse.

Who’s number 1? Well, it’s the “original recipe” CSI, starring William Petersen as the super-intelligent, but low key, Gil Grissom. Gil, by the way, doesn’t seem to wear sunglasses that often. Could this be the defining difference?

Not Number One
Don’t believe it's true? Here’s the story from the New York Post:


'CSI" is officially the most popular TV show on the planet.

According to a new study, nearly 84 million viewers around the globe watched the CBS crime drama in 2007.

It beat out its sequel, "CSI: Miami," and "House," according to the ratings firm Eurodata, which ranks shows by their worldwide ratings.

With 61.5 million viewers, "Desperate Housewives" snagged the title of top comedy, while "The Bold and the Beautiful" was dubbed the most-watched soap in the world (26.2 million viewers).

The biggest show in the US, "American Idol," did not place because different versions of it are seen in different countries.

"CSI" debuted in 2000 and has been renewed for a ninth season. It follows a group of Las Vegas crime scene investigators who use science and high-tech gizmos to solve grisly murders.

It has spawned two popular spinoffs so far, "CSI: Miami" and "CSI: New York."

Great! I always knew the original was so much better than CSI Miami.
