Dancing with the Stars is still on top, followed by Deal or No Deal and Heroes. CSI:NY makes its first appearance on the list at #4, which Matt Tatham of Hitwise suggests was due to the show involving virtual world Second Life. I'd suggest it's not necessarily because they used SL in the show, but rather CSI: NY now has a virtual community in SL and huge real estate on the SL home page that links back to CBS' web site. Still, CSI: NY has almost twice the market share of Gossip Girl.
