Ratings: Christine and Gary Fly High, Daisies Disappoints

This Wednesday's ratings rundown: 8 pm/ETBones won the hour and topped the demos, delivering 10.73 million total viewers (dipping 150K from last week's season high). Securing second was CBS' sitcombo of Old Christine (8.09 mil, +18 percent) and Gary Unmarried (8.14 mil, +21 percent), both of which surged to season highs. Knight Rider rode third with 5.12 mil. Here's where it gets sad. Despite a wave of well-wishes from its fans, Pushing Daisies mustered a mere 4.86 mil, fumbling 27 percent of its most recent audience — which, yes, was inflated by the Obamamercial — but also plunging 14 percent from the outing prior to that. Sources had been saying that the series is kaput; sources would now seem to be right. Top Model's season-ender delivered the series' best audience in nearly a year — 4.8 million viewers. 9 pmCriminal Minds soared 11 percent to win the hour with 16.38 million viewers. Private Practice (7.14 mil) dropped wildly from its last outing — which, mind you, had a DWTS results show for a lead-in — while Life (5.32 mil) slid 510 thousand. Stylista (2.16 mil) gained 430K. 10 pmCSI: NY's big Mac attack flirted with 14 million viewers (up 20 percent week-to-week), while Law & Order (7.58 mil) dipped 320K. ABC's other Wednesday bubble show, Dirty Sexy Money (5.63 mil), dipped 10 percent.
