Watch Out: Must-see CSI

TONIGHT: CSI: Crime Scene Investigation (9pm on CBS)
Who knew there was still life in the formulaic original-recipe CSI? When William Peterson's Gil Grissom packed up his bug collection and went home in January, the show got a jump start with the addition of actor Laurence Fishburne. Not only are we finally—finally—able to separate Fishburne from his terrifying '90s Ike Turner performance in What's Love Got to Do with It, but we're getting a chance to see the lab through new eyes. Every time Fishburne's Ray Langston contaminates his lunch over an autopsy or dorkily overdresses for lab duty, we're reminded why we love both the actor and this oh-so-predictable comfort television.
