American Idol Ratings Down 4% From Last Wednesday

American Idol Wednesday summary from TV By the Numbers:

Led by American Idol’s 7.9 adults 18-49 rating, Fox dominated the night with adults 18-49, and won with total viewers too. That was down 4% from last Wednesday’s episode and down 12% versus a 9.0 adults 18-49 ratings for last year’s equivalent episode of the cycle on Tuesday, February 23 (also a two hour episode).

Half-hour breakdown after the jump.  If my math is right, Idol averaged 22.60 million viewers for the night.
