In a tight battle, ABC’s Grey’s Anatomy beat CBS’ CSI to win Thursday’s ratings race with 15.3 million viewers. Meanwhile, Ugly Betty‘s audience grew slightly over last week; My Name Is Earl continued to hemorrhage viewers and fell to its lowest ratings ever; Parks & Recreation‘s audience also declined week-to-week but did improve over its lead-in; Supernatural dipped slightly below its season average; and Southland continued to drop from its premiere episode several weeks back.
