Laurence’s debut on “CSI” had a reported 20.6 million viewers glued to the screen, according to HollywoodReporter.com.
Those are the show’s highest ratings since the season premiere.
It seems a little new blood on “CSI” went a long way for CBS, which won every hour on Thursday night. Ratings for “Survivor,” which leads into “CSI,” were bit higher than last week, and viewers stuck around after “CSI” to watch “Eleventh Hour,” earning that show its highest ratings ever.
Last week’s episode of “CSI” was the first half of a two-part episode, so Laurence will be back to work more of his magic this Thursday, December 18.
