CBS has set finale dates for its primetime shows, including The Good Wife, NCIS, Two and a Half Men and CSI.
Fox topped Tuesday with a special American Idol, while Smash continued its precipitous slide.
Idol's two-hour episode averaged 11.5 million viewers and a 3.4 in the adults 18-to-49 demographic. NCIS did, however, edge it out by a tenth in the 8 o'clock hour (20.3 million, 3.3 vs. 10.9 million, 3.2).

NCIS: Los Angeles
"There's often the question, 'Why would you do a third one?'" NCIS and NCIS: Los Angeles executive producer Shane Brennan admits of the franchise's next spinoff, which will launch as a two-part "embedded pilot" on NCIS: LA March 19 and 26. "'How would it be different?'"

I heard there may be trouble ahead for Booth and Brennan on Bones. Please tell me that's not true! — Hilary, via Twitter
ADAM: The couple did seem to be having some serious communication issues before Brennan got shot in this week's episode. I think you can put safe money on those issues not being quickly resolved. In the meantime, Brennan will also have trouble with another man in her life: new squintern Oliver Wells (Brian Klugman), who has some issues with Brennan's authority. "[He] is completely un-intimidated by Brennan. He does respect her, but he doesn't revere her," executive producer Stephen Nathan tells us. "That's a new thing for these interns because [Brennan] holds their future in her hands. He has so many degrees and is so accomplished, he doesn't need her. It's very disorienting and disconcerting for her."
