CSI: NY’ returns for its seventh season, it’ll be the new kid on the block

When ‘CSI: NY’ returns for its seventh season, it’ll be the new kid on the block — the Friday night block. The series has moved from its former Wednesday timeslot to air Fridays at 9PM ET on CBS.

And that’s not the only big change to take place: Original star Melina Kanakaredes, who left the series this summer, is being replaced by Emmy-winning actress Sela Ward. The only thing not changing, it seems, is the location — still New York, New York.

During a location shoot in Central Park, Ward told us how happy she was to join the veteran hit series. “I’m loving being on the show. I love the character, love Gary Sinise, love all of the cast,” she said, adding “It’s very different for me, so I’d be lying if I didn’t say this may be the hardest thing I’ve ever done … but slowly but surely, I think I’ll get my sea legs.”

Ward and Sinise haven’t worked together before, though they’d met on the awards circuit (he for ‘Truman,’ she for ‘Almost Golden: The Jessica Savitch Story’). And when the offer to join ‘CSI: NY’ came in, Ward couldn’t pass up the opportunity to work with the fellow Emmy winner.
