Thursday Ratings: American Idol Falls Despite Save

Ratings are in from TVByTheNumbers

FOX topped the night’s adults 18-49 rating, even as American Idol’s 3.9 adults 18-49 rating matched its series low for a results show, down 9% vs. last week’s 4.3 rating. At 9pm, Touch kept falling, down 9% to a series/season low 2.1 adults 18-49 rating, vs. last week’s 2.3  rating.

The Voice: Results 3.3 9 8.860
Dancing with the Stars: Results 2.5 7 14.170

The buzz around Jessica Sanchez’s surprise boot and save did not entice more viewers to tune into this week’s Idol results show.  Idol continues to best The Voice and Dancing with the Stars comparable episodes in the demo, although once again, DWTS edges out Idol for viewers.J
