Ratings Report: Millions Get Lost

by at . Comments

Last night's episode of Lost (11.3 million viewers) enjoyed a boost of 1.5 million viewers from last week. Guess going home again (to the island home, that is) paid off for the show.

So did not having to go up against American Idol.

They're Back!

Speaking of Idol: Last night's results show (24.4 million) was down 5.1 milion viewers from last year's same episode.

Among other primetime pickings:

So Good, It's Criminal: The downsized Idol still saw nearly 10 million more viewers than the evening's second-most-watched show, Criminal Minds (15 million).

Etc.: At 9 p.m., Lie to Me (11.2 million) scored a second-place finish in the 18-49 year-old demographic; Life on Mars (5.8 million) improved on earlier season numbers.
