This is pretty amazing–a show in its eighth season drew its largest audience ever on Jan. 11, 2011, Deadline.com reports.

The veteran procedural was the top program on the night by a mile in viewers and adults 18-49 (4.5/12), leading CBS to an easy nightly victory and solid ratings gains from the Tuesday lineup’s last originals on Dec. 14."
