Laurence Fishburne will stay with hit crime drama CSI for at least another season.

The actor has renewed his contract for CSI: Crime Scene Investigation meaning he will continue shooting episodes throughout the 2010-11 season.

The Emmy Award-winner joined the CBS show in 2008 following the departure of William Petersen, debuting on the ninth episode of the ninth season as college professor Dr Raymond Langston.

Since his arrival the show has continued to do well in the US, performing well in its primetime slot midweek on CBS.

Fishburne will also appear in the upcoming Predators reboot by director Robert Rodriguez and Steven Soderbergh’s Contagion alongside Matt Damon and Jude Law.

CSI: Crime Scene Investigation screens Thursday nights on CTV. 

One of the longest-running series on television has been renewed for its 23rd season.

Fox has granted the hit reality show Cops another season to add to its already impressive haul following 21 years on TV.

“We’re doing gangbusters,” creator John Langley said. “It’s an existential variety show — dramatic, life-threatening, philosophical and legal. We’re still the only show on television with no script, no actors, no host and no re-enactments.”

The show will soon air its 800th episode in the US and the tally to date is 2,044 arrests across 140 U.S. cities.

The show is holding steady in the ratings department, keeping its audience around the 5 million per week level.

60 Minutes is still the longest running primetime show with this year being its 42nd on air.

The mistresses of celebrities Jesse James and Tiger Woods are reportedly lined up to host their own reality show that would focus on celebrity cheaters.

Michelle McGee and Jamie Jungers, two of the women who have claimed intimate relationships with James and Woods respectively, are linked with the new TV project named Celebrity Cheaters which would look to catch out well-known cheaters.

The show is created by Bobby Goldstein, the man behind the syndicated series Cheaters, which sprung adulterers with the help of their disgruntled partners.

Goldstein has said the pair has agreed to hosting duties but nothing is in writing as yet. 

The 2010 Juno Awards wrapped up earlier and Michael Buble has owned the night as expected, bagging a total of four awards including Album Of The Year and Single Of The Year.

Drew Carey is involved in a new hidden-camera show CBS is developing.

The project, with a working title of ‘WTF!’ (standing for Wow That’s Funny!), is currently in development with a pilot episode shot recently involving pranks performed in public.

The Whose Line Is It Anyway? host is collaborating with producer Tom Forman on the project which is described as “well-intentioned”. One example of the type of prank pulled is with the group transforming a late-night truck stop into a five-star restaurant for the benefit of long-haul truckers.

The show will adopt a similar style of light-hearted fun as CBS’s previous weekend hit Undercover Boss. 

US action drama series Burn Notice has been given another two seasons.

The USA Network show will return for seasons five and six with a minimum of 15 and 18 episodes apiece.

The fourth season of the hit show is currently filming in and around Miami and will premiere in June in the US. Season five will begin production in roughly a years’ time.

The show stars Jeffrey Donovan, Gabrielle Anwar, Bruce Campbell and Sharon Gless.

Comedian Patton Oswalt is out of his co-starring role in new NBC comedy pilot Beach Lane only days after he was cast.

On Monday this week the news came of Oswalt’s inclusion in the cast of the new pilot alongside Kristen Johnston and Matthew Broderick. He was set to play James, a slacker with inherited wealth who’s given the job of running a small newspaper in the Hamptons. He hires a renowned journalist (Broderick) to help turn around the paper.

Reports are saying the producers of the show are offering Oswalt another part but it is unclear whether or not he will stay in the show.

Beach Lane is created by Paul Simms (“Bored to Death,” “The Larry Sanders Show”) and produced by Lorne Michaels and Marci Klein.
