LOS ANGELES, Calif. (Oct. 22, 2013) - It's not just the bad guy you'll be looking for in the 300th episode of CSI: CRIME SCENE INVESTIGATION, on Wednesday, Oct. 23 (10:00 - 11:00 PM, ET/PT) on CBS. In celebration of the milestone event, the episode will have the number "300" hidden 14 times throughout the show. While watching, viewers are encouraged to track them down and see how they did following the show by visiting CBS.com for a full list of the "300" audio and visual cues.
In the 300th episode, Catherine Willows (Marg Helgenberger) returns to help the CSIs solve a cold case that has haunted the team for 14 years. Also, Jason Priestley guest stars as casino mogul Jack Witten.
"Throughout our 300 episodes, we have hidden 'Easter Eggs' in a number of shows," said Executive Producers Carol Mendelsohn and Don McGill. "For instance, if you look carefully in all episodes directed by Alec Smight, you will find an ornamental wooden lawn deer with a spiked collar. In our 300th episode, we have hidden 14 '300' references to commemorate our 14 seasons and the 300th milestone. And... one lawn deer, since Alec directed it."
Currently in its 14th season on CBS, CSI: CRIME SCENE INVESTIGATION wins its Wednesday (10:00-11:00 PM, ET/PT) time period in viewers and is also a global ratings hit, earning the International TV Audience Award for the "most watched show in the world" for three consecutive years, and five times in the awards' eight-year history.
