Update: American Idol adjusted up to 5.3
American Idol had a 5.0 adult rating last night and 17.1 million viewers. This was steady from last week’s 5.1 rating, but still not enough to beat NCIS’s 18.7 million total number of viewers last Tuesday or Dancing with the Stars’ 17.9 million on Monday.
Survivor: One World and America’s Next Top Model were also steady from last week.
American Idol drew a 5.0 adults 18-49 rating on Wednesday night, effectively even with last week considering consistent one tenth point upward finals adjustments, vs. a 5.1 rating last week. To no one’s surprise, Idol and Fox were the overwhelming leader among adults 18-49 and total viewership for the night.
CBS’ only original on the night, Survivor, was even with last week’s regular episode low 2.8 adults 18-49 rating.
ABC was all repeats for another week except for Happy Endings which rose a tenth to a 1.9 adults 18-49 rating, vs. a season low 1.8 rating last week.
CW’s One Tree Hill’s 0.6 adults 18-49 for its penultimate episode was down two tenths vs. a 0.8 rating last week, and America’s Next Top Model rose a tenth to a 0.7 adults 18-49 rating, vs. a 0.6 rating last week.
