Ratings: American Idol 12 down 12%, has lowest rated new episode in show’s history
Update: American Idol adjusted up to 3.7, TBBT up to 5.5
American Idol 12 had a 3.6 adult rating on Thursday and 12.33 million viewers. Just as I predicted, the show is now in the 3’s! This was down 12% from last week’s 4.1 and down 29% from a similar show last season.
This is the lowest rated show in Idol history — although still more viewers than a lot of episodes in Season 1.
The Big Bang Theory had a 5.4 rating and 17.62 million viewers to be the #1 show of the night. Two and a Half Men had a 3.8 rating and 13.74 million viewers, the #2 show of the night.
Glee had a 1.7 rating and 5.16 million viewers (down from 2.2 last week).
The Vampire Diaries had a 1.0 rating and 2.31 million viewers.
Beauty and the Beast had a 0.5 rating and 1.41 million viewers.
Scandal had a 2.8 rating and 8.04 million viewers.
