Criminal Minds did very well with its ratings last night:

Fox's American Idol expectedly won Wednesday night ahead of CBS shows Criminal Minds and CSI: NY.

Over 19 million Americans watched as Michael Lynche got voted off American Idol, with a 6.4 rating in the 18 to 49 age group.

Its main competitor between 9 and 10pm EST was CBS's Criminal Minds with close to 13 million viewers, and Modern Family (ABC) attracted more than ten million. By doing so, it tied its previous record. Moreover, the show also earned a 4.2 rating.

No shows really stood out in the opening primetime hour although The New Adventures of Old Christine on CBS did well with over seven million viewers. NBC's Minute to Win It got slightly less viewers but did win the 18-49 ratings (2.2).

The last hour of primetime was dominated by CSI: NY on CBS, attracting well over 11 million viewers.
