Fox, of course, ruled Tuesday care of American Idol, which averaged 24.21 million viewers and an 8.9 rating/23 share from 8-10 p.m. Here is the half-hour breakdown:

American Idol (Fox)
8:00 p.m. ‘ Viewers: 21.59 million, A18-49: 7.8/22
8:30 p.m. ‘ Viewers: 23.78 million, A18-49: 8.6/22
9:00 p.m. ‘ Viewers: 26.05 million, A18-49: 9.8/24
9:30 p.m. ‘ Viewers: 25.42 million, A18-49: 9.6/23

As good as this is, the year-ago telecast was considerably stronger at 28.44 million viewers and a 10.6/26 in the demo on March 4, 2008, based on the final nationals.

Considerably, indeed.
