Is CSI The Only Show On TV?


I’m sure I’m not the only one that’s noticed that it seems like no matter what time of the day it is, you can always find an episode of CSI on tv. Are there no other shows in syndication that these cable networks feel like playing? I’ve been wanting to do this randomly one day and today was a perfect day since I’m just sitting around the house doing nothing. I wanted to pick a random day of the week and see just how often CSI is actually on TV. When I say “CSI” I’m referring to all of the different versions, CSI (Las Vegas), CSI: NY and CSI: Miami, and when I refer to “TV” I’m talking about basic cable.

What I found actually kind of surprised me. I don’t know if this is typical for every day of the week (even though it seems like it) or if Spike just happened to be running a marathon today. I checked TVguide.com from the time I woke up this morning (7am) to midnight tonight which is 17 hours. So how many hours (of the 17 I checked) do you think that CSI was on any basic cable channel?

If you guessed 10 of 17 hours, guess again… the correct answer………….. 14 hours!!! CSI appears on TV today, 14 out of 17 hours!! That’s absolutely insane. It was mostly comprised of CSI: NY on Spike, all day, with a few episodes of CSI: Miami thrown in there on A&E. I was a little surprised that CSI (Las Vegas) wasn’t on at all today, which is also why I’m guessing it’s a CSI: NY marathon on Spike.  So there you have it, if you love CSI you should aways have something to watch no matter what time you sit down in front of the tube. And for those that care, after the jump is the rundown of the hours and which show was actually on.
