American Idol 15 Second Week Ratings Slide

American Idol preliminary ratings are down from last Wednesday’s 2.9 premiere numbers, and last Thursday’s 2.7. While last week’s premiere was the night’s winner, Modern Family edged out Idol to lead the night with a 2.6 rating.

While last Wednesday’s premiere was a two hour broadcast, the show settled into its regular Wednesday 1 hour time slot this week. Thursday editions of Idol will be 2 hours long for the rest of the season.
