"The CSI: franchise is a phenomenon that shows no signs of slowing down," said King. "Stations are lining up to make sure they can provide their viewers with CSI: Miami when the syndicated two-year run of CSI: Crime Scene Investigation draws to a close."

King World delivers to stations two different episodes of CSI: Crime Scene Investigation each weekend, keeping the syndicated version fresh for viewers, and will continue this practice with CSI: Miami in Fall 2006.

CSI: NY, which premiered on CBS this past September, is the #10 highest rated series in prime time. It's #1 in its time period, having achieved the highest rating in the time period in 10 years. King World expects to offer stations CSI: NY in Fall 2008, following the two-year syndicated run of CSI: Miami.
