American Idol Ratings Up 11%

American Idol’s SHOCKING results show wins the Thursday night ratings race. Preliminary ratings via TVBytheNumbers:

Even though we need to wait for the finals to see how CBS did, it’s safe to assume Fox easily won the night both with adults 18-49 and total viewers. American Idol was up 11% to a 6.2 adults 18-49 rating and with the “Idol” lead-in, even a repeat of Bones managed a 2.5 adults 18-49 rating.

American Idol averaged 20.74 viewers last night.  The Monday night DWTS premiere had more total viewers at 22.657, but didn’t beat last night  in the 18-49 demo (5.3/15)
