The popular television crime drama reboot Hawaii Five-0 will make history next week by allowing fans of the show to choose the ending of an episode for the first time. The episode will air Monday, Jan. 14 at 10 p.m. on CBS and viewers will be able to vote to solve the case. Not only will fans get to choose the ending, but votes will be counted in real time instead of before the show begins.
The episode follows the team as they investigate the death of a local college professor and his boss, a student caught cheating and his teaching assistant are all named as suspects. Viewers can visit CBS.com or Twitter during the broadcast and vote for #theBoss, #theTA, or #theStudent and the results will be immediately counted. The suspect with the most votes will have their ending added to the broadcast.
Voting will occur separately for Eastern, Central, and Pacific time zones, so each episode could have a different ending. However, all three episode endings will be available for viewing on the CBS website after the episode airs.
