Ratings News: Attack of the Death Star

Here’s your ratings news for this week.   It’s pretty much the same old song–American Idol mows down everything in its path,  striking fear  in the hearts of many a  network programmer…


According to preliminary nationals from Nielsen, “American Idol” (13.4 rating/33 share in adults 18-49, 33.1 million viewers overall) crushed the competition at 8, and was again up a bit vs. the same night a year ago. “House” (10.2/24 in 18-49, 25.0 million viewers overall) followed with one of its best perfs to date, off some from its record-setting delivery of a week ago but more than doubling its closest pursuer in all key categories.


With American Idol in their line-up on Wednesday night, Fox won the Nielsen ratings by a landslide–and then there was everybody else.

Fox toothe night in the key 18-49 demo with an 8.1 rating/20 share in thanks to an episode (11.8/27) of Idol that assembled some of the best–and worst–performances from the various try-outs across the country.
