Grey's Anatomy was adjusted up two tenths from the preliminary numbers to a 3.6 adults 18-49 rating.

American Idol, The Big Bang Theory,The Office, and the The Mentalist were all adjusted up a tenth of an 18-49 ratings point in the finals.   The 8pm repeat of The Office was also adjusted up a tenth from the preliminary numbers.

There were no other adjustments.  Despite the picture choice, Bones was not adjusted.  In recent week's Idol had overrun slightly into Bones, with Idol being adjusted up two or three tenths and Bones being adjusted down a tenth. Last night I don't think there was any overrun and Fox aired the trailer for The X Factor between Idol and Bones.
