Ratings: Daisies Blooms (a Bit) as Bones Gets a Bye

With Bones benched by baseball, this Wednesday's 8 o'clock contest offered a three-horse race, as CBS' increasingly strong sitcombo of Old Christine (7.74 million total viewers) and Gary Unmarried (7.71 million) found itself in a dead heat with the first hour of Fox's NLCS Game 5 coverage (7.736 mil). Knight Rider, up 100K week-to-week, placed a very close third, with 7.66 mil.

Pushing Daisies finally enjoyed an upward tick, gaining 13 percent to hit 6.3 mil. A Top Model clip show did 3.19 mil.

Come 9 pm, the Big 3's coverage of the final presidential debate drew 28.9 million viewers, a drop of 10 mil from the last face-off (which also was covered by Fox). Joe the Plumber, sources tell me exclusively, was busy watching the Phillies pound the Dodgers.
