CBS ticked off fans of its CSI: NY Wednesday night, during the episode's final moments, when the network broke in with the news that Palestinian leader Yasser Arafat had died. "An overly aggressive CBS News producer jumped the gun with a report that should have been offered to local stations for their late news," said CBS's apology, which did not name the producer. "We sincerely regret the error." CBS will rerun the episode – in its entirety it is hoped – Friday night.
Silly news producer. Americans don't care about world politics. If it doesn't have a slogan attached to it, it doesn't mean anything to us.
Also.. uh .. CSI: NY? Really?
