News and Television in Primetime

Did you catch the new episode of CSI on Sunday?  I did.


I have always wondered how it was possible that things that were going on in the news could be a topic that is on a show that was taped months ago.  When I was younger I used to think that shows taped each week, got edited and aired.  Then I learned more about production.  That doesn’t happen.

Anyway, let’s talk about the show.

This is the shows 15th season and its 3rd episode.  If you haven’t caught it I am giving spoilers here, but you can at least now watch it on CBS online.  So, Sara (Jorja Fox) and Greg (Eric Szmanda) are quarantined after being told they were at a scene where a deadly virus or as they put it intelligently pathogen (anything that can produce disease).  Throughout the show it seems to be worst than the Ebola problem we are currently dealing with both domestically and internationally.

Can anyone tell me how these things occur.  Yes, it is true that there are many diseases that are here (domestically) but how the hell do these writers write their episodes and when they air, they coincide with what is occurring in the world and in the news.

Someone please, if you have insight into that, then let me know.
