ABC won the night with the 42nd Annual Country Music Awards which drew an 8.8/14 household rating/share from 8pm-11pm in the early metered market numbers.

The New Adventures of Old Christine had a 4.4/7, identical to last week, and Gary Unmarried also had a 4.4/7 which was up from last week's 4.2/6. Criminal Minds drew a 9.8/15 vs. last week's 9.5/15 and CSI: NY had a 7.8/13, identical to last week. When Marc Berman wrote about some of CBS declines at 8pm and 10pm being due to the CMA show, I'm not really sure what he's talking about since CBS did better or exactly the same as last week. Marc also loves to hammer away at America's Next Top Model losing steam, which versus last year it is. But versus last week, it had the same amount of steam; it drew a 3.1/5 both weeks. But Stylista isn't working out running with ANTM, it dropped still a little bit further from last week's 1.6/2 to a 1.5/2.

Knight Rider's 3.3/5 and Life's 3.7/6 were the same as last week too, and Law & Order's 5.8/10 was identical to last week. Life again lost to a rerun of House which do a 4.2/6. At 8pm Bones had a 6.4/10 which was up a little bit from last week.

Knight Rider's and Life's numbers aren't any good, but those shows have full season orders while My Own Worst Enemy and Lipstick Jungle have been cancelled. But Knight Rider's and Life's numbers have been more or less stable while MOWE and LJ had been dropping. According to the Futon Critic, Lipstick Jungle and My Own Worst Enemy will finish out their runs and air any unaired episodes.

We'll have the details for all of last night's shows after we see the fast affiliate data, but if you need something to tide you can check out the full metered market report from Marc Berman.
