Ratings are in from TVBYTheNumbers

Fox topped the night’s adults 18-49 ratings as American Idol was even with its 4.2 adults 18-49 rating from last week. A week after Touch’s official premiere it slid 15% to a 2.8 adults 18-49 rating, vs. a 3.3 rating last week.

Idol staying even with last week? I’ll take it.  Big Bang beat Idol in the demo, but Idol had more viewers.

    It’s good to see AI staying steady.  Last night’s results show (with the exception of Nicki Minaj) was a great results show.  I wish we could have more like that.

    It will likely be adjusted up, so that means it will be up from last week. Good news.

    The headlines is misleading, if we have to compare the numbers at this point, it should be with the early numbers  of last week which was a 4.0.
    The show is getting better numbers than last week and the finals numbers have 95% chance of being better too.

    Off-topic, yay for Community standing its ground against Big Bang Theory and probably earning a renewal from NBC (who should be worried that a 1.7 rating is its highest number on a Thursday night ouch).

    Btw, once again, it looks like idol will be the only show this week to get a 5 or above.

    Here are last night’s AI upward adjusted ratings from tvbythenumbers.

    Both American Idol as well as The Big Bang Theory were adjusted up two tenth of a ratings point among Adults 18-49 versus Thursday’s preliminary numbers.

    oh, snap. idol’s ratings @ 4.4 are the exact ratings of the Voice. and yet, no mention of idol’s ratings compared to last season. as a legitimate blogger, your headlines (the voice hits a season low) are so skewed towards idol. impartial? notsomuch.

    Except that comparing a performance show to a results show is like comparing apples and oranges.  Today’s numbers for The Voice’s first results show do not look so good. So…not impartial. Just making apt comparisons.
