share (household) for the season finale of The Amazing Race, CSI: Crime Scene Investigation

it finished second for the night in households.
NBC and CBS tied for first in adults 18-49. Fox was third with a National Football League
preseason game, followed by ABC with a bloopers show, Extreme Makeover
and PrimeTime Thursday.
