‘CSI’ is the most-watched TV show in the world

We all know that American TV shows rule the global airwaves. But some shows take it to a whole other level.

Last year, FOX's "House" claimed the title of most-watched TV program in the world, but this weekend a different TV drama reclaimed its status as the most popular show among international audiences.

CBS' long-running "CSI: Crime Scene Investigation" toppled "House" with more than 73.8 million viewers worldwide, according to the esteemed Monte-Carlo Television Festival.

This isn't the first time the ten-year-old forensics crime drama has been declared the world's most popular show by the fest - in fact, the "CSI" franchise has dominated almost every year of the International TV Audience Award's five-year history. "CSI: Miami" was the first show to be honored as the most-watched drama internationally in 2006, and its forerunner "CSI: Crime Scene Investigation" took the award in 2007 and 2008. But the original "CSI" was bested in 2009 by "House," the same year it suffered a significant drop in ratings when the show's central character Gil Grissom (William Petersen) left in its ninth season.
