Telemystery: New Prime Time Crime for Friday, September 24th

Telemystery: Mystery and Suspense on Television

This week we've been profiling some of the new and returning prime time crime series that may be of interest to fans of mystery and suspense television programming. Here are the featured series for Friday, September 24th, both on CBS.

CBS: The seventh season of CSI: NY airs with an episode titled "The 34th Floor" at 9 PM (ET/PT). The newest member of the CSI team, Jo Danville (Sela Ward), a former FBI agent, is welcomed to her new job by stumbling upon the body of a young woman murdered somewhere in the building that houses the NYPD Crime Lab. The series stars Gary Sinise as NYPD Detective Mac Taylor.

CBS: Following at 10 PM (ET/PT) is the pilot episode of Blue Bloods. We couldn't find any specific information on this episode, but the series is a drama about a multi-generational family of cops dedicated to New York City law enforcement. Frank Reagan (Tom Selleck) is the New York City Police Commissioner and heads both the police force and the Reagan brood. He runs his department as diplomatically as he runs his family, even when dealing with the politics that plagued his unapologetically bold father, Henry (Len Cariou), during his stint as Chief. A source of pride and concern for Frank is his eldest son Danny (Donnie Wahlberg), a seasoned detective, family man, and Iraqi War vet who on occasion uses dubious tactics to solve cases. Jamie (Will Estes) is the youngest Reagan, fresh out of Harvard Law and the family's "golden boy;" however, unable to deny the family tradition, Jamie decided to give up a lucrative future in law and is now a newly minted cop.

One series absent from this list is Body of Proof on ABC. For reasons not explained by the network, the premiere of this series, originally scheduled for Friday, has not been officially rescheduled (though some sources put the date as October 22nd). Dana Delany stars as Dr. Megan Hunt, a brilliant neurosurgeon at the top of her game. Her world is turned upside down when a devastating car accident puts an end to her time in the operating room. Megan resumes her career as a medical examiner determined to solve the puzzle of who or what killed the victims of crime.
