That noise you heard last night was NBC officially passing the Must-See TV torch to rival CBS. For the first time opposite an all-original NBC lineup, the Eye network paced by the season premieres of CSI and Without a Trace won Thursday night in the Peacock's cherished adults 18-49 demo. At 8 pm, Survivor: Vanuatu (farewell, Dolly) scored a decisive victory over NBC's Joey/Will & Grace combo, while CSI crushed The Apprentice (buh-bye, Stacie J.) at 9 pm 30 million viewers to 15.6 million viewers. But the big story was at 10 pm, where Without a Trace edged out the 11th-season premiere of ER among total viewers another first. Now, that's what I call an emergency.
