The (former) doctor is in on CSI.
ER alum Sherry Stringfield guest-stars on Wednesday's episode as Dawn, a blue-collar swing-shift CSI who helps Morgan (Elisabeth Harnois) track a serial rapist. As you can see in our exclusive first look video....
Elisabeth Shue and Lea Thompson
Though they costarred in 1989's Back to the Future Part II and 1990's Part III, Elisabeth Shue (who played Marty McFly's girlfriend, Jennifer) and Lea Thompson (who played Marty's mom, Lorraine) appeared together in only one scene. So it came as a rare treat for them to reunite for a November episode of Shue's CSI, in which Thompson guest stars as an investigator who is looking into a misconduct claim against Greg (Eric Szmanda). "We both had to sign a bunch of Back to the Future Part II posters for the crew," Thompson says. "A lot of people, including Eric, were totally geeking out."
Ted Danson, Elisabeth Shue
On the surface, the Season 14 premiere of CSI may feel a bit familiar.
After all, the show's premiere one year ago found the team searching for a team member's abducted loved one. And while this year, D.B. Russell (Ted Danson) & Co. are trying to find kidnapped team member Morgan (Elisabeth Harnois) and Ellie (Teal Redmann) the daughter of Brass (Paul Guilfoyle), that's pretty much where the similarities end.

"Things won't turn out quite so rosy this time," executive producer Don McGill tells TVGuide.com. "A person close to the CSI family will die...
ABC's innocuous new sitcom about likable underdogs, Back in the Game, could just as easily be called "Luck of the Draw." This Bad News Bears-lite gets a major assist right out of the gate with an enviable time period (Wednesday, 8:30/7:30c) sandwiched between TV's best family comedies, The Middle and Modern Family. Which could always backfire, of course, if the show doesn't live up to ratings expectations, and while this Little League comedy doesn't quite measure up to the big leagues, we shouldn't be surprised if family audiences rally around the team, turning a solid base hit into something potentially worthy of extra innings.
Someone turns up dead on the Sept. 25 season premiere of CBS's CSI. Who's the corpse in the casket? Executive producer Don McGill offers some clues:
Jaclyn Smith, CSI
When Jaclyn Smith starred on Charlie's Angels, her character, Kelly Garrett, "was kidnapped and had heroin injected into my toes," she remembers. Jaclyn gets nabbed again on the March 21 episode of CBS' CSI when the ageless beauty guests as Hodges' long-mentioned but never-seen...
Ted Danson, Marg Helgenberger
It's hard to imagine Sam Malone from Cheers needing a maggot wrangler. "I've never seen anything like it," Ted Danson says. Even with silver hair, the Emmy-winning actor looks like a kid who just pulled apart his first earthworm. "You can tell how long a human body has been decomposing by the size of the bugs crawling inside!" And the wrangler's got every variety. "It's incredible, until you think, 'Oh, God. We're talking about dead people.'"
David Boreanaz, Eric Dane, Alex O'Loughlin

Is it true that Ralph Waite will be back as Booth's grandfather on Bones? — Liza
ADAM: Indeed it is. In fact, he'll return in an episode that will feature three generations of Booth men. We'll actually see Booth's dad via an extremely emotional flashback to Booth's childhood. (Hint: It has something to do with those baseball stadium seats Booth moved into his apartment last season.)
Will Mark try to win Lexie back on Grey's Anatomy? — Jane
NATALIE: No. "With all the philandering over the past few seasons, people have...
Omar Gooding, Miami Medical
Warning: The following story contains important details from Friday's episode of Miami Medical. If you haven't seen the episode, read at your own risk.
For a freshman drama like Miami Medical, putting a main cast member in mortal danger so early in the series' run is a risky move. But show creator Jeffrey Lieber tells TVGuide.com it was a necessary one.

"One of the things we found out from doing research is that one of the particularities of trauma is that because there's so much violence involved, the rate of doctors and nurses who are harmed is much higher than in the ER and the regular medical profession," Lieber says. Because of that — and some contractual issues that required Omar Gooding to miss a few episodes — Lieber & Co. decided ...
