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.
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?):
@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)
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.
