Predictably, CSI fans were more interested in Grissom’s last show than they were the series’ first episode without him. Though the veteran drama still won the 9 p.m. hour, its 17.5 million viewers was a 28 percent decline from William Petersen’s Jan. 15 exit. ABC’s Grey’s Anatomy saw an 8 percent increase week-to-week, averaging 14.3 million viewers, according to overnight data. Fox’s Bones made its debut in a new time slot, Thursdays at 8 p.m., and took the hour with 10 million viewers. That’s on par with the show’s last original airing in its old Wednesday at 8 p.m. slot (Thanksgiving eve), but 9 percent below its season high in that time period. (A second new episode of Bones only held on to 75 percent of that crowd at 9 p.m.) At 10 p.m., ABC’s Private Practice hit a season high with 9.2 million viewers, but still finished second to CBS’s Eleventh Hour (12.3 million).
