American Idol continues its winning ways:
“American Idol” was the night’s most-popular show and averaged 31 million viewers and a 12.9 rating/31 share in the adults 18-49 demographic, according to preliminary data released Wednesday by Nielsen Media Research.
Fox was in first place on the strength of Idol, which scored a 12.1/29 in the 9-10 slot.
Last week’s “Best of The Rest” episode, while keeping Idol in first place, only attracted 27.9 million viewers vs. the 31-37 million viewers who tuned into the prior audition rounds.
Maybe that extra “Hollywood” episode would not have been such a bad idea after all.
ETA: I just finished the Season 5 chart. Compare and contrast!
