Tyra this week got the better of Ted. Tyra this week got the better of Ted.

Wednesday's ratings rundown:

8 pm/ET
What a feeling! Lie to Me led the pack with 7.88 million total viewers, dipping 6 percent from its last outing. It was followed by a Law & Order repeat and CBS laffer leftovers.

ABC's Scrubs (4.66 mil) and Better Off Ted (4.2 mil) both dropped 12 percent week-to-week. In fact, Ted got bested in its half hour — in total viewers and demos — by Top Model, which inched up 200K to flirt with 4 mil.

9 pm
American Idol's double-elimination delivered 23.3 million viewers, slipping just a hair from last week's results show. (Side note: Did anyone else get the feeling KC hasn't sung that song since, I dunno, Dec. 31, 1979?) A Criminal Minds repeat claimed second with 9.75 mil, followed by Lost's clip show (6.64 mil) and an SVU rerun.

10 pm
It was BAU — yet not — for Criminal Minds, which bested all comers in a later time slot, drawing 13.55 mil. Lagging behind a(nother) Law & Order repeat, ABC's The Unusuals copped 4.97 mil, down about 20 percent from the freshman dramedy's average-to-date.
