AMERICAN IDOL - "115 (Top 10 - Disney Night)" - "American Idol" heads to the happiest place on earth, Disneyland Resort, then returns to the Idol stage with a sprinkle of magic to perform fan-favorite Disney songs, as the search for AmericaÕs next superstar continues on its new home on AmericaÕs network, The ABC Television Network, SUNDAY, APRIL 29 (8:00-10:01 p.m. EDT/5:00-7:01 p.m. PDT).

American Idol ratings were second the week of April 23. Only the Big Bang Theory beat it. BBT was the only show to break 2.0. American Idol’s Disney night, a coast to coast broadcast earned a 1.9.

Disney night came in 5th in terms of viewers, with the Tuesday version of  The Voice was the 3rd most viewed show of the week.

ABC won the adults 18-49 race in the (rather soft) week of April 23, thanks in part to a nationwide live broadcast of “American Idol.”

“Idol” finished second for the week in the 18-49 demographic with a 1.9 rating, 0.1 behind “The Big Bang Theory.” A block of “Roseanne” repeats on Tuesday also performed fairly well, snagging four spots in the top 25, and “Grey’s Anatomy” also finished in the top 10.

ABC averaged a 0.9 in the 18-49 demo for the week, which was the second straight with no network breaking the 1.0 mark. CBS had the biggest total audience (6.4 million) for the eighth week in a row.
