CRIMINAL MINDS OVERNIGHT NIELSEN RATINGS INFO FOR "BLOODLINE"
Criminal Minds overnight Nielsen ratings info for "Bloodline". There was never a question in my mind that last night was going to be an interesting fight for ratings. We had some competition and it was going to be tough but if you look at the viewership numbers you will agree with me that we did very well.
Criminal Minds topped the hour with 13.86 million viewers, dipping just 190K versus increased competition. Fox's Lie to Me premiered to 13.2 million, but the truth is it shed more than three million samplers over the hour and fell to third come 9:30.
Lost's two-hour season opener averaged 11.37 mil, down 29 percent from the series' year ago premiere and down 830K from the Season 4 finale.
