American Idol‘s penultimate elimination round gave Fox its usual Wednesday night win, while ABC’s Lost slightly bettered its audience from the past few weeks with its mind-blowing two-hour season 5 finale, which drew 9.3 million viewers. Both of CBS’ serials that aired from 9 to 11 p.m. opposite Lost dropped about a million watchers from their usual audience (although both Criminal Minds and CSI:NY still managed to beat Lost). Meanwhile, America’s Next Top Model finished strong — last night’s season finale brought The CW its highest total viewership since the second week of cycle 12.
