American Idol 12 season premiere had a 6.0 adult rating on Wednesday — down 19% from last year’s 7.4 rating. The show had 17.91 million — a loss of 4 million viewers from last year.
I’m stunned. It’s going to be downhill from here and I won’t be surprised if the ratings settle at the mid-4′s throughout the rest of the season. I’m guessing it will hit the 4′s in two weeks.
Long live American Idol!
American Idol returned Wednesday night, and Fast National returns give the veteran singing competition’s twelfth season premiere 17.81 million viewers and a 6.0 rating among adults 18-49 — losses of 19 percent from last January’s premiere.
