"Criminal Minds" In Its Most Competitive Position to a First Run "Lost"

CBS Is First in Viewers and Competitive Second in Adults 18-49 and Adults 25-54 With Its Highest Rated and Most Watched Wednesday Since Last March

Last night's CSI: NY, the conclusion of a crossover with Monday's episode of CSI: MIAMI, dominated its time period competition as it delivered its most watched episode since September 2004 and highest rated in key demographics in nearly a year, according to preliminary Nielsen affiliate ratings for Wednesday, Nov. 9.
