The May 5 episode of TWO AND A HALF MEN is written by CSI writers Sarah Goldfinger and Evan Dunsky from a story by CSI executive producers Carol Mendelsohn and Naren Shankar. The May 8 episode of CSI was written by Chuck Lorre and Lee Aronsohn, executive producers/writers of TWO AND A HALF MEN. (See show highlights below for complete storylines.)
