Overnight TV Ratings -- "Lost" Loses To "CSI: NY" At 10 p.m.

Of course, "Lost" has been losing for a while, losing to "Idol" at 9 p.m., losing fans, losing its family friendly timeslot at 9 p.m., and now losing to the generic "CSI: NY." It will definitely be hurting next week when its lead-in will be the flailing sitcom "In Case Of Emergency." Fans followed the post-Super Bowl "Criminal Minds" to see the finale of that two-parter. But I don't think they've takent eh show to the next level. The Super Bowl is a FAMILY affair and the show that follows it should be fun for the whole family, not grim and dark. Meanwhile, "Friday Night Lights" was typically rock-solid, proving that all its fans have followed the show from Tuesday to Monday and now Wednesday without skipping a beat. For a complete ratings breakdown, go to MediaWeek's Marc Berman.
