American Idol Ratings Fall vs Last Thursday

American Idol ratings dropped half a point from last Thursday’s edition and 3/10s of a point from last night. The glimmer of good news: Nearly every show fell last night, except for the already low-rated Heroes Reborn and Beyond the Tank, which stayed steady. American Idol was actually the #2 show of the night, behind The Big Bang Theory.

Also taking a big hit was Jennifer Lopez’s new show, Shades of Blue, which fell to 1.3 in the 18-49 demo from last week’s 1.8 debut.
