It's time for another big goodbye on CSI (9 p.m., CBS/Ch. 2). Original cast member Marg Helgenberger is leaving the series and taking her character, Catherine Willows, with her.

And despite the fact that Catherine was shot in last week's episode, she won't be leaving in a body bag.

But after 11½ seasons and 263 episodes, it's probably time to go.
