The franchise wins in overall viewers and the demographic prized by advertisers.

CSI: Miami came out on top with 13.33 million viewers and a 3.8 rating/10 share in the important 18-49 demographic. Castle (7.61 million, 2.1/6) and Medium (7.58 million, 2.8/8) shared the second and third positions, with Castle pulling in more viewers while Medium won the key demo.

12.01 million viewers ensured CSI: New York's victory on Wednesday, as did the 2.8/8 it earned among adults 18-49. The Unusuals was second with 6.21 million viewers and 1.9/5. A repeat of Law and Order came in third with 5.95 million viewers and 1.7/5.

CSI: Crime Scene Investigation was watched by 15.42 million people on Thursday, winning its timeslot.

The NBC combo tied CSI in the key demographic with 3.8/10. In fact, although NBC averaged out to 3.8/10 with the inclusion of Rock's score (3.5/9), Office actually came out ahead of CSI from 9:00-9:30pm with 4.1/11. Kitchen (3.4/9), Grey's (1.5/4) and Supernatural (0.7/2) rounded out the hour.
