A few other quick notes:

* ABC’s Last Man Standing (6.6 mil/1.4) was down two tenths in the demo, while Malibu Country (6.1 mil/1.4) ticked down one tenth.

* CSI: NY — which just had its Season 9 finale set for Feb. 22 — dominated its hour in total viewers (with 10 mil) while dipping a tenth in the demo (to 1.4).

* Both Fox’s Kitchen Nightmares (3.1 mil/1.2) and Fringe (2.7 mil/0.9) were steady. Speaking of Fringe, here’s a video from last weekend’s 100th episode/wrap party. Fun “video bomb” at the 50-second mark, and show boss Joel Wyman may wreck you at the very end.
