Ratings: ‘CSI’ hits finale low; ‘Survivor: One World’ rises

The numbers are back up.

With the fate of most Wednesday shows already set in stone for next season, there was not much in the way of drama — however, that doesn’t mean that the night was devoid of any interesting shifts whatsoever in the ratings.

CBS – Despite the show being primed for potentially one of its lowest-rated finales ever, “Survivor: One World” did inch up versus last week’s 2.6 rating in the 18-49 demographic to score a 2.7. “Criminal Minds” posted a 2.8, while “CSI” had its lowest-rated finale ever with a 2.4 (which is a shame, since this season has been a marked improvement).

Fox – “American Idol” was once again down this week to a 4.4 rating, though this was still easily strong enough to defeat every other show on the night.

ABC – “The Middle” started things off with a series-low 1.9 rating, but there was good news pretty much everywhere else — “Suburgatory” (2.1) and “Modern Family” (4.3) were each up versus their last new episodes, and “Don’t Trust the B— in Apartment 23” was steady with a 2.3.

NBC – “Betty White’s Off Their Rockers” held steady in the 1.5-1.6 range, while “Rock Center with Brian Williams” fell back to a 0.8. “Law & Order: SVU” — the only renewed show on the night for the network — scored a 1.7.

The CW – We wonder if the network is regretting renewing “America’s Next Top Model” now, as its ratings have taken a nosedive all the way down to a 0.4 rating — half of what they were at times during the fall.

What do you think about these numbers?
