The 200th episode of CSI: Crime Scene Investigation faced stiff competition on Thursday when the NBC drama ER aired its series finale from 9:00-11:00pm. ER had 15.07 million viewers in the 9:00pm hour and an average of 16.23 million viewers for the two-hour episode. CSI came in second with 14.38 million, beating out Hell's Kitchen (6.98 million), a repeat of Grey's Anatomy (4.90 million) and Supernatural (3.28 million).
