The “CSI” franchise became a global phenomenon, a huge hit both critically and commercially, which enabled Zuiker to reach a high level of popularity in the world of entertainment, and to earn an astonishing fortune. Being aired in hundreds of episodes, the show reached a Guinness World Record. It received a number of nominations and awards, including six Primetime Emmy Awards and four People’s Choice Awards.
