SCENE STEALERS

Here's a Law & Order twist Dick Wolf probably didn't see coming: In one of this fall's most hotly contested face-offs, the debut of CSI: New York killed Wolf's seemingly unstoppable Law & Order last night. The latest CSI spin-off averaged 19.4 million viewers, while L&O attracted 15.6 million viewers. (Me? I blame Elisabeth Rohm.) But it's ABC that had the most to be excited about: The premiere of J.J. Abrams' acclaimed castaway thriller Lost found 18 million viewers from 8 to 9 pm/ET, crushing CBS's Dr. Phil special, NBC's Hawaii and Fox's That '70s Show.
