- More new lows for CBS, with season lows for The Big Bang Theory (its lowest levels since season 1), Rules of Engagement (its lowest levels in about two years) and CSI (series low). All the shows took small drops from the already brutal numbers from last week and were around 25% below average.
- The biggest mover was Wipeout, which posted an ugly series low 1.4. Bones and Nikita picked back up to normal recent results after unusually bad showings last week.
- The Office came back down to earth from the Carell finale, but it's still at typical late-season levels. Despite that lead-in drop, Parks & Recreation and 30 Rock both rallied significantly after airing at weird start times last week. Parks and Bones were the only shows above average.
