Thanks to Rob Zombie‘s mom for putting CSI: Miami on her son’s radar. The horror wizard directs tonight’s new episode (CBS, 10 p.m. ET), just as the TV-viewing audience emerges from a 17-day hibernation period in which our loofahs remind us of Olympic curling brooms. Expect blood, guts, and William Forsythe. “I was amazed at some of the things we did get away with,” the horror wizard told Show Patrol. Watch CBS’ preview for the episode, below.

I’m liking the way Michael Madsen‘s CSI version of jazz hands (when his name appears on-screen) mimic Malcolm McDowell‘s finger-wag as he sings about libel. We can only guess McDowell’s next musical number will be “Singin’ in the Rain”….

Will Zombie’s guest direction lure you in to CSI: Miami, or do you watch it anyway?
