C.S.I. New York - The Complete Second SeasonTonight the Food Network tries to help you with some ideas for tailgating when going to the big game or making some tasty treats at home when watching it on TV. In other TV news The Nine lost a lot of the Lost audience last week. A lot less people watched the second episode than the first. Unbelievably Dateline NBC came in second place in that time period behind CSI: NY. Dateline got better ratings than any showing of Kidnapped got in that timeslot. Starting November 15th NBC will return Medium to the airwaves to that timeslot. I wonder how it will do against CSI: NY and The Nine. I wonder if The Nine will still be around by then. The third hour of primetime on Wednesday night may just not be a place for any type of serialized TV story telling. Heist faded quickly last season on NBC in that slot. What do you think about Wednesday night TV?
