Update: American Idol adjusted up to 6.1 and 18.89 million viewers.
American Idol scored a 6.0 adult rating with 18.63 million viewers. It has historically been adjusted up a tenth later in the day (so it is likely a 6.1 rating).
Idol ratings are steady! But how about this: The Voice and American Idol have similar ratings this week (The Voice had a 6.0). Who would have thought this would happen one year ago? I wanted to continue with the “ratings war” thing (it still is a war), but how can an Idol fan be really happy about beating another show by 0.1 in the ratings when for the past 10 years we didn’t have to do that. Times have truly changed.
Modern Family had a season low 4.7 rating and Survivor: One World had a franchise low 3.0.
NBC was beaten by Univision again.
American Idol had a 6.0 adults 18-49 rating and if past history is a guide, will likely be adjusted up a tenth in the final national numbers. That compares to a 6.1 adults 18-49 rating for last Wednesday’s one hour episode.
Fox easily topped the adults 18-49 ratings and total viewership on the night, as NBC’s Wednesday woes continued. NBC was beaten again among adults 18-49 by Univision, and more than doubled by CBS and ABC.
Modern Family had a season low 4.7 adults 18-49 rating, vs. a 5.5 rating last week. Happy Endings drew a season low 2.5 adults 18-49 rating, vs. a 2.9 adults 18-49 rating last week.
The season premiere of Survivor: One World had a franchise low premiere 3.0 adults 18-49 rating, down 6% vs. the 3.2 rating for the Spring 2011 premiere of Survivor: Redemption Island. With Survivor in front of it, Criminal Minds hit a season low 3.0 adults 18-49 rating, down 9% vs. a 3.3 rating last week. CSI bucked the CBS/ABC downdraft, rising to a 2.7 adults 18-49 rating, vs. a 2.5 rating last week.
