Among other primetime pickings:

  • The Big Bang Theory (9.76 million) and How I Met Your Mother (9.22 million) were both up from last week
  • The CW's One Tree Hill (2.27 million) and Gossip Girl (2.24 million) both suffered from their long hiatus
  • House (12.8 million) enjoy a boost with its zany "Death Cat" episode
  • CSI: Miami (13.35) may have dropped, but it still beat Castle (11.48)
