We've got another bleeder......

From and The New York Daily News:

CBS, which has beefed up its web content considerably this season, will take another step toward bridging the online and on-screen worlds with next week's "CSI: Miami."

Following the broadcast of Monday's (Nov. 21) episode, the network will unveil a "bonus scene" that will affect events on the show for the remainder of the season. But viewers will have to go to to see it. The segment is sponsored by Hummer, which is the maker of the vehicles Horatio Caine (David Caruso) and his team all drive....

The extra scene will be posted at 11 p.m. ET Monday and will feature (according to producer Ann Donohue) "a revelation that threatens to tear the team apart and will lead to a shocking conclusion at the end of our season."

Reporter Erica Sykes shares some information with Detective Ryan Wolfe that leads to an undercover investigation within the CSI lab. The primary story in the episode involves the CSI team tracking a group of criminals that are acting out the events of a violent video game called "Urban Hellraisers."

In a way, this is reminiscent of the experiment by the producers of 'Homicide: Life On The Street' which finally fused their two worlds of the TV shift and the online cybershift in an episode in the show's final season.

And we get a nice little addition to the TV Trivia with the video game. I'm sure "Urban Hellraisers" will be found in the stockings of all the good little boys and girls this holiday season in Toobworld.
