American Idol

Ratings: American Idol ratings stable, wins Wednesday

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.

From TVbytheNumbers:

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.

HAHA! Idol beat the voice by over 2 million viewers! So yes, it still is number one by far! And it beat it in the demo. The Voice ratings are sinking FAST!

Idol has been godawful boring this season. The chemistry of the coaches on The Voice are amazing but the contestants are just okay. Nothing excites me anymore. I'm wondering whether I'm having a singing show fatigue or the pentacle of singing show peaked at Idol Season 8.

@djfabian The only post that is getting any traction is the American Idol Top 24 Spoilers post. Everything else is below that of individual The Voice contestant posts. This is a direct result of the horrible audition episodes that Idol aired for 3 weeks.

@Julie_Idol NCIS beat American Idol in number of viewers. Idol is not the most watched show. I don't see why you could be happy when you are forced to compare yourself to The Voice -- a show you didn't even think would be competitive this season.

Again: The Voice has gone UP year-to-year, American Idol has gone DOWN year-to-year. There is no reason to celebrate a .1 demo win in my opinion. There is reason to celebrate steady ratings however - since the bleeding has stopped.

@aquayers I think you meant "pinnacle".

"Pentacle" is a satanic symbol. Although that might be appropriate as well. :)

@Mikhail XO Did you see what I just did there Mikhail? It's a loss for Idol to find themselves in this "ratings war" in the first place.

@djfabian I had all the American Idol auditions here when The Voice still hadn't aired and it was a ghost town! That's not my fault, it's the show.

@Mikhail XO The thought of going "we're #1" for barely beating The Voice embarrassed me, so I didn't do it. :)
