Did Criminal Minds do it, finally, truly and actually? In Wednesday's ratings round-up....

- NBC's 30 Rock (4.83 mil) and Twenty Good Years (4.24 mil) both suffered 1.2 million viewer hits.
- Jericho, just shy of 10 million, was down 500,000 heads, but held onto the 8 o'clock hour's No. 2 spot (ahead of Bones, 7.42 mil).
- The fast overnights suggest that Criminal Minds (16.73 million) bested Lost (16.12 mil, down 680K week-to-week) in total viewers, though Lost, of course, dominated the key demos.
- The Nine hit a series low with 6.68 million, down 1.3 mil from last week, and again was plagued by 10:30 tune-out (this time to the tune of minus 1.9 million viewers).

UPDATE: The final tailies tallies are in, and it's official. Per a CBS press release, this marks the first time Criminal Minds has topped a first-run Lost in total viewers (16.97 million to 16.07 mil); the first time Criminal Minds topped Lost in both half-hours in viewers; and the first hourlong scripted program to score more viewers than Lost.
