    Marg Helgenberger to leave "CSI" at season's end

    (CBS) Actress Marg Helgenberger, who has been with "CSI: Crime Scene Investigation" since it began 11 years ago, is quitting at the end of this season.

    The 56-year-old Helgenberger, who plays investigator Catherine Willows on the show, told reporters gathered in California for the annual fall TV previews she plans to leave at the end of the upcoming 12th season of what CBS is calling the most watched TV series in the world.

    "I was planning on leaving after last season," Helgenberger said, adding that producers talked her into staying for another season so they could better script her exit.

    Her planned exit comes just as former "Cheers" actor and co-star of HBO's "Bored to Death" Ted Danson joins the cast. Danson, who replaces Laurence Fisburne, will play CSI supervisor DB Russell. Executive producer Don McGill says Russell is a family man who grew up in a commune with folk-singing parents.

    Danson, 63, said he enjoys working on a crime drama, but joked "they still won't give me a gun."

    Just KIWF already! This show died a long time ago. Just complete the autopsy and move on. We don't even want to wait around to hear the results.

    Yup, this will be the season where CSI finally jumps the shark. I never really liked Catherine, but she did carry the show.


    I'm still apprehensive about Ted Dansonthe show.


    I think this may also be the season where I finally give up on this show. Which is gonna be hard after 11 years And I'll mis Greg.

    I gave up after Grissom left. I watched a couple at my mum's when I was last staying there but Fishy didn't do anything for me so I've not bothered with it since.

    Yeah it died when Grissom left. I tried a couple times with Fishbourne, but he is terrible in this.

    Agreed. I lost interest after Grissom left (like most everyone else) but I am watching the last two episodes with Catherine. It was actually really good last night.

    But yeah. It's so totally over after she leaves. As cute as he is, I don't think George Eads can carry the show.

    Nor can Sam Malone.

    I think the show needs to go. I haven't watched it in years. Stopped after Season 6. There's only so many plots you can go through IMO before a show gets silly.

    I did, it was OK, definitely not like when it was in it's prime. I knew creepy Doug was the culprit once I saw his pic on the suspect board. Kinda nice Grissom and Sara ended up together, I'm assuming she quit the position she had just accepted hours before...
