CBS Finishes Strong Second in Key Demos

On one of the most competitive nights of the week -- facing off against "Lost" and baseball -- CBS turned in an impressive Wednesday night performance, with "Criminal Minds" showing strong week-to-week growth and "CSI: NY" increasing its first place lead, according to final national Nielsen ratings for Wednesday, Oct. 12.

CRIMINAL MINDS (8.9/13, 13.76m) was second in viewers, adults 25-54 (5.4/12) and adults 18-49 (4.2/10), up from last week by +13% in households (from 7.9/12), +15% in viewers (from 11.98m), +23% in adults 25-54 (from 4.4/10) and +27% in adults 18-49 (from 3.3/08). CRIMINAL MINDS posted this time period's largest audience with a regularly scheduled program since 2/26/03's 60 MINUTES II (which had Dan Rather's interview with Saddam Hussein), best adults 25-54 delivery since 11/26/03 (THE KING OF QUEENS/BECKER with a SURVIVOR special as a lead-in) and in adults 18-49 since 3/16/05 (THE KING OF QUEENS/YES DEAR with a SURVIVOR special lead-in).

CSI: NY was first in households (9.8/16), viewers (15.23m), adults 25-54 (6.3/15) and adults 18-49 (5.3/14). CSI: NY easily topped NBC's "Law & Order" by +32% in households (vs. 7.4/12), +47% in adults 25-54 (vs. 4.6/10), +51% in adults 18-49 (vs. 3.5/09) and +39% in viewers (vs. 10.92m -- nearly a 4.5 million viewer lead). CSI: NY beat "Invasion" by +32% in households (vs. 7.4/12), +13% in adults 25-54 (vs. 5.6/13), +10% in adults 18-49 (vs. 4.8/12) and +31% in viewers (vs. 11.58m -- over 3.6 million viewer lead). Compared to last week, CSI: NY was up +2% in households (from 9.6/15), +4% in viewers (from 14.57m), +11% in adults 25-54 (from 5.7/14) and +15% in adults 18-49 (from 4.6/12).

For the night, CBS (8.0/13, 12.37m) placed a strong second in adults 25-54 (5.0/12) and tied for second in adults 18-49 (4.0/10, with FOX's baseball).
