Hits Daily Double: 58% Increase for David Cook, David Archuleta Re-enters the Top 50

Check out the Hits Daily Double Top 10–David Cook, rounds out the list with a 58% increase, while most of his chartmates had a decrease.

What’s the deal with the increase?   Last week music from David’s album was featured on both of last week’s audition episodes. Plus, he performed on Jimmy Kimmel Live last Tuesday, the night of the Idol premiere.

That’s a nice bump, especially for January.

Check out the Cook montage featured on Tuesday’s American Idol premiere right HERE. Phoenix was the featured audition city. There was even more pimpage the following night, when Idol auditions hit Cook’s hometown, Kansas City.
