American Idol Ratings Dip Against 60 Minutes Overrun

AMERICAN IDOL - "105 (Auditions)" - "American Idol" heads to Los Angeles, Nashville, New Orleans, New York City and Savannah, as the search for AmericaÕs next superstar continues on its new home on AmericaÕs network, The ABC Television Network, SUNDAY, MARCH 25 (8:00-10:01 p.m. EDT).

American Idol Sunday ratings dipped a little vs last week from a 1.7 to a 1.6. The numbers could have been a lot worse considering the first half hour was up against the blockbuster 60 minutes Stormy Daniels interview. CBS scored a 4.0, which is massive for the show, which generally attracts an older audience. The interview was event television, attracting 21 million viewers.
