Pearl Jam boosts 'Cold Case'; 'Sit Down' falls flat

Cold case The Nielsen logjam has broken; ratings are starting to trickle in. Here's a few highlights from Sunday:

CBS' Cold Case (12.9 million viewers, 2.9 adults 18-49 rating) was up 38% to deliver its best performance in six weeks. The two-part season finale featured the music of Pearl Jam, with several cuts from the recent re-release of the band’s 1991 album Ten.

Case has been considered on the bubble for a renewal, though recent whispers say that a pickup is probable and Sunday's performance certainly doesn't hurt. The Unit (10 million, 2.4) is more shaky, though the drama went up a few tenths.

ABC won the night in the adult demo (though lost to CBS among total viewers) led by Desperate Housewives (13.5 million, 4.4), slipping this week. On NBC, Celebrity Apprentice (8.7 million, 3.1) was on par. Put back in its old time period, Fox's King of the Hill (5.1 million, 2.5) did better than Sit Down, Shut Up's recent performance, though was still the weak link in the network's 8-10 p.m. lineup. Moved to 7 p.m., Sit Down (2.1 million, 0.8) dropped a dramatic 96%.
