Isn't it funny (interesting, not ha-ha) how things shift when you take DWTS and Lost out of the mix? Look at this Wednesday night:

- The "fall finale" of Jericho (10.34 million total viewers) drew the series' best ratings since Oct. 25. (Don't forget to visit now through Feb. 14, Jericho's return date, for new clues, video and such.)
- Bones (8.87 mil) enjoyed its best outing since Sept. 6, placing third in the 8 pm hour behind the Rockefeller Center tree-lighting thing.
- With 5.76 mil viewers, America's Next Top Model hit a season high (and thus an all-time high for the CW network). In turn, lead-out One Tree Hill surged 1.7 mil week-to-week to set its own season best.
- Up 1.4 million versus last week, Criminal Minds (17.95 mil) hit a series high.
- The news wasn't good, though, for Day Break (4.75 million), which lost another 350,000, and placed fourth at 9 pm behind Biggest Loser and a repeat of Bones.
