Ratings: CBS scores with 'CSI' crossover

The first episode of CBS’ much-hyped, three-night CSI crossover scored, according to preliminary overnight ratings. Guest star Laurence Fishburne helped CSI: Miami earn 13.8 million viewers, a boost of 1.3 million from last week’s episode. Elsewhere, it was a pretty standard Monday night with ABC’s Dancing with the Stars dominating with 17.6 million viewers. Over on The CW, the controversial threesome episode of Gossip Girl (2.3 million) gave the series only a slight boost from last week’s 2 million.
