Ratings: American Idol up 7% from last week, down 34% from last year
Update: American Idol adjusted up to 4.3
American Idol had a 4.2 adult rating last night which was up 7% from last week. Good job America! You deciding to vote off Jessica Sanchez created the ratings push the fans wanted. It’s self-perpetuating, I love it.
Now just make sure to vote off another front-runner next week and the ratings are sure to climb up again. That’s the secret!
May I suggest that you vote off Colton and Phillip out, then Elise, then Jessica, then Skylar… and we can have an epic Hollie Cavanagh and Joshua Ledet finale, with Joshua winning it all. This is the scenario for ratings win, the track record proves it.
The Big Bang Theory and Person of Interest were on repeat last night.
The rest of the numbers:
Fox won the night with adults 18-49 paced by American Idol which was three tenths higher last week with a 4.2 adults 18-49 rating. Touch was steady vs. last week with a 2.3 adults 18-49 rating.
Despite being almost entirely repeats, CBS was second for the night. Those rooting against another hour of comedy on CBS on Thursday’s next season likely feel punched in the gut this morning with a repeat of The Big Bang Theory at 9pm topping all the original competition on ABC, Fox and NBC during that half hour. CBS’s only original on the night was a Rules of Engagement episode that drew a 2.7 adults 18-49 rating, even with last week when it had an original Big Bang Theory as its lead-in. The special time slot test of a Person Of Interest repeat at 10pm fared pretty well with a 1.8 adults 18-49 rating.
