American Idol Hollywood Week Ratings Rise

Thursdays are a tough night for American Idol, which goes up against Big Bang Theory on CBS and Grey’s Anatomy on ABC. But the show, so far, is holding its own. Idol actually BEAT Grey’s last night, coming in second behind Big Bang. The ratings rose nearly half a point for the second half hour, too.
