Ratings Race: American Idol Continues to Lead the Pack


Ratings Race: American Idol, The Voice The Masked Singer Week 4/23-4/29

Ratings Week of 4/23-4/29: American Idol ratings on ABC continued to lead the singing shows with its five hours of programming on Sunday and Monday. On Sunday, the afternoon NBA Playoffs appears to be lifting both America’s Funniest Home Videos (0.66/5M) and American Idol. A 3-hour American Idol was up week to week 0.04 to 0.68 in the key demo.

On Monday, once again, American Idol won the demo (0.61 vs 0.47) for the night, while The Voice on NBC had more eyeballs. (4.9M vs 5.2M) Again, that means American Idol attracted more of the younger viewers advertisers crave than The Voice.

On Wednesday, however, Survivor reigned supreme on CBS with 0.74 rating in the key demo and 5.2M viewers. The Masked Singer on FOX garnered a 0.53 rating and 3.4M viewers. The show, featuring a Wildcard battle, rose sharply from the clip show the week before (0.48).

Here’s a fun fact: The show with the most viewers in prime time on Wednesday was the NBC Carol Burnett 90 Years of Laughter & Love special with a whopping 7.6 million viewers. BUT it only managed a 0.39 rating!!! In other words, it ruled the 50+ demo (advertisers are yawning).
