    1. Giving prizes to anything named CSI is the dead giveaway, isn’t it?

      Somebody needs to send those guys a box set of Breaking Bad.

      1. You would have to send that box set to all European TV viewers, and even then it wouldn’t count because that award is for the most watched international TV show, but only if it’s watched while airing on the networks that have paid for its airing rights… and the show that fits all the criteria this past season is CSI. Duh!
