CRIMINAL MINDS: SMALL BUT NICE ARTICLE.
Criminal Minds forges ahead
The Mandy Patinkin-led crimefighters of Criminal Minds surged to their highest-ever viewership figures on CBS this past Wednesday.
The episode rang up 17.9 million viewers and led in the adults 25-54 demographic, The Hollywood Reporter said.
Criminal Minds had tussled earlier in the season with ABC's Lost and gradually gained ground on the castaway adventure-mystery.
Lost has gone on a 13-week break, and its replacement - the Groundhog Day-like Day Break starring Taye Diggs as a detective who relives the same day over and over again - has been faring poorly.
Day Break's latest episode just pulled in 4.7 million viewers, which the trade newspaper noted was 40% down from its previous average.
