“CSI: Crime Scene Investigation” has been awarded with the International Television Audience Award for a Drama TV Series at the 52nd Festival de Télévision de Monte-Carlo Golden Nymphs. The prize is based on stats from Eurodata TV Worldwide for the highest ratings in 2011 across five continents. This marks the fifth time the CBS procedural series has been given the award in the past seven years due to its viewing figures. Eric Szmanda, Jorja Fox and George Eads are all expected to reprise their characters when the show returns for its 13th season this fall. “CSI” spinoff “CSI: Miami” was canceled after ten seasons on air, while “CSI: New York” was renewed for a ninth season.
