'CSI' ends its 15-season run with 2-hour reunion finale

'CSI' ends its 15-season run with 2-hour reunion finale

NEW YORK (AP) — There was scant evidence suggesting it would be a hit.

"CSI: Crime Scene Investigation" was a last-minute pickup by CBS, plugged into a Friday lineup whose widely forecast surefire hit would be a reboot of "The Fugitive," not a quirky little drama dwelling on hair fibers and blood spatter.

Premiering in October 2000, "CSI" was an out-of-nowhere smash. ("The Fugitive" flopped.) But that was just for starters. It would spawn two long-running spin-offs, set in Miami and New York, and recently gave birth to a third, "CSI: Cyber," which now will survive it as the 15-season run of the original "CSI" comes to an end Sunday at 8 p.m. local time.

The two-hour farewell brings back bygone stars including Marg Helgenberger (who played exotic-dancer-turned-investigator Catherine Willows until departing three seasons ago) and Petersen (who headlined for eight-plus seasons as lab boss Gil Grissom).
