Prime-time stars — they're dropping like corpses on "CSI. " Word leaked late Tuesday that Laurence Fishburne will leave CBS' "CSI: Crime Scene Investigation" after just 2½ seasons as Dr. Raymond Langston.

The set of CBS' whodunit "CSI: Crime Scene Investigation" has become a perilous, suspenseful place lately -- and the cameras haven't even been rolling.
