American Idol Ratings Redux Up 5% From Last Thursday

American Idol ratings (via TVByTheNumbers) rose 5% vs. last Thursday:

Of course Fox won the adults 18-49 ratings on [Thursday] night, as American Idol’s 6.7 adults 18-49 rating rose 5% vs. last Thursday. What surprised me is that Fox’s Mobbed special drew a 3.8 rating, nearly as high as the best post-Idol Bones.

American Idol averaged 22 million viewers last night

Ratings by half-hour:

8:00 FOX American Idol 10 RESULTS 6.0 19 19.983
8: 30 FOX American Idol 10 RESULTS 7.4 21 24.062

    Casey’s “elimination” got a lot of publicity. The ratings increase could be a result of that.
