American Idol Ratings Down 21% From Last Week

American Idol ratings were down 21% versus last Thursday’s 2 hour episode, according to TVByTheNumbers:

Fox easily won the night, but last night’s American Idol was down 21% versus last Thursday’s two hour episode to a 6.5 adults 18-49 rating. The drop isn’t surprising as last week’s results show announcing the finalists is traditionally one of the bigger episodes.

But, compared to last year, Idol was down only 4% and UP 6% in total viewers.

Nearly 22 million viewers tuned into American Idol last night to watch Ashthon Jones get the boot.
