A new episode of CSI: Miami failed to win its timeslot, but Taylor Swift's appearance on CSI: Crime Scene Investigation beat the competition.

On Monday, CSI: Miami came in second behind the first part of The Bachelor: After the Final Rose, which pulled in 17.47 million viewers and a 6.7 rating/16 share in the prized 18-49 demographic. Miami had 13.31 million viewers and 3.8/9. Medium came in third with 7.28 million viewers and 2.5/6 in the key demo.

CSI: New York aired a repeat on Wednesday, but it earned the top spot with 11.39 million viewers and 2.7/8 in the 18-49 demo. A repeat of Law and Order shared second-place honors with Life on Mars. Law had higher viewers with 5.78 million to Mars' 5.65 million. In the 18-49 demographic, Mars pulled in 2.1/6, which was enough to beat Law's 1.6/5.

Swift's episode of CSI: Crime Scene Investigation earned 20.80 million viewers on Thursday, taking the top spot at 9:00pm. Hell's Kitchen was second with an approximate 10.64 million viewers (the numbers are approximate because American Idol ran over a few minutes). NBC had the third place in overall viewers with its combination of The Office (8.63 million) and 30 Rock (7.35 million). A repeat of Grey's Anatomy came in fourth with 5.68 million viewers, and a repeat of Supernatural rounded out the hour with 1.93 million. In the 18-49 demo, CSI dominated with 5.3/13, followed by Kitchen (4.6/12), the combo of Office (4.5/11) and Rock (3.8/9), Grey's (1.6/4) and Supernatural (0.7/2).
