Bush Address Pushes Back Peterson's Final "CSI"

CBS delaying lineup by 15 minutes, new "CSI" now airing at 9:15 p.m.
Publish date:

CBS isn't letting President George W. Bush's farewell TV address cut into its prime time schedule, particularly since that includes William Peterson's much-promoted final episode on CSI.

CBS said Wednesday that it would air the lineup in its entirety Jan. 15 following the president's 15-minute speech at 8 p.m.

That means CSI won't start until 9:15, CBS let everybody know in a programming advisory. The night starts off--well, after the president--with a repeat of the episode that introduces Peterson's replacement, Laurence Fishburne.
