American Idol

Ratings: American Idol down 4% from last week, barely beats Modern Family

Update: American Idol adjusted up to 5.0

American Idol had a 4.9 adult rating from last night, down from 5.1 last week. This is steady-ish which should be good news for FOX.

Idol still can’t beat the 5.4 rating The Voice posted last Monday or the 18 million viewers NCIS posted on Tuesday.

Modern Family had a 4.8 adult rating. Can the show finally beat Idol next week? It’s very possible.

I’m not upset anymore. I’ve already accepted that American Idol is no longer the #1 show on TV this week.

The rest of the numbers (how low can America’s Next Top Model go?):

From FOX_Research:

@AmericanIdol was the top program of the night in Adults 18-49 (4.9/13), Teens (3.4/12) and Total Viewers (17.0 million)

From TVbytheNumbers:

Fox easily won the night in the adults 18-49 ratings and total viewrship, as American Idol slipped 4% to a 4.9 adults 18-49 rating, vs. a 5.1 rating last week. Recent final ratings adjustments are likely to narrow that gap by a tenth of a point.

CBS’s Survivor: One World rose a tenth of a point vs. last week to a 2.9 adults 18-49 rating. Criminal Minds had a 3.1 adults 18-49 rating matching last week’s season low. CSI dipped 10% adults 18-49 rating, vs. a 2.9 rating last week.

The Middle had a 2.6 adults 18-49 rating, up 18% vs. a season low 2.2 rating last week. Suburgatory drew a 2.4 adults 18-49 rating, up 4% vs. a season low 2.3 rating last week. Modern Family’s 4.8 adults 18-49 rating was even with last week . Happy Endings 2.8 adults 18-49 rating, up 17% vs. a 2.4 rating last week.

The premiere of the next cycle of America’s Next Top Model mirrored the CW’s season’s ratings woes as it drew a 0.6 adults 18-49 rating, plunging 45% vs. a 1.1 rating in its spring 2011 premiere.
