Update: American Idol adjusted up to 5.4 and 18.27 million viewers.
American Idol had a 5.3 adult rating last night up 18% from last week. It had 18.3 million viewers.
Idol is normally adjusted up a tenth, so the show could tie The Voice’s 5.4 rating on Monday. OMG! I think we’re finally going to get our dogfight! (I expect Nigel Lythgoe to start tweeting again soon).
Idol also beat NCIS in total number of viewers.
The Big Bang Theory was a repeat last night.
The rest of the numbers:
@AmericanIdol was the top program of the night in Adults 18-49 (5.3/15), Adults 18-34 (3.5/11) and Total Viewers (18.3 million)
