On this day in 2014, CBS aired the CSI:New York series finale, marking the end of an era in TV history. CSI: New York was the last of the three CSI franchise series to be taken off the air, having outlasted CSI: Miami by three years and the original CSI by four. The final CSI:NY original episode was notable for a surprise guest appearance by one of Gary Sinise's costars from Forrest Gump, Mykelti Williamson, and for its poignant closing scene set 30 years in the future in which a long-retired Mack Taylor eulogized his old team during a commencement address at the NYPD Academy.

On this day in 2010 William Petersen gave his first TV interview since CSI ended its ten-year run on CBS. Quashing rumors that it had been the network's decision to kill off Gil Grissom, Petersen said that in fact it had been his own idea to center the series finale on Grissom's demise in order to underscore the reality of violent crime in Las Vegas and let his co-stars take center stage in their farewell episode.
