Yes, these ratings still look good despite the week-to-week drop. IIRC, Criminal Minds was also down, probably due to baseball as well. That's the positive thing -- CSI:NY seems to be tracking well with Criminal Minds, holding on to almost all the audience, and I didn't think that was the case last year. I just saw a promo yesterday, though, that Law and Order is coming back this week -- apparently earlier than originally planned because the other show in that slot wasn't doing well. Hopefully, CSI:NY can still hold onto its ratings superiority in that timeslot.
