Thursday Ratings: American Idol Slips From Last week

@Fox_Research tweets:

“At 8p, #AmericanIdol was No. 1 in its hour among Adults 18-49 (4.8/14), Total Viewers (17.0 million) & Teens (3.1/12)”

#FOX was No. 1 last night among Adults 18-49 (3.6/10, tie w/ CBS), Adults 18-34 (2.3/7) and Teens (2.3/9) #AmericanIdol #TheFinder

To date, #FOX has ranked No. 1 among Adults 18-49 on every Wednesday and Thursday since American Idol 11 premiered

That’s down from last week’s 5.4 rating.  That’s to be expected as last week was the big Top 13 reveal. I’ll post more info as it becomes available

UPDATE: From TVByTheNumbers:

At 8pm a one hour version of American Idol was down 11% from last week’s two-hour episode to a 4.8 adults 18-49 rating.  The Big Bang Theory returned after a week off with a 5.1 adults 18-49 rating, down two tenths from two weeks ago but if history is a guide it’s likely that both The Big Bang Theory and American Idol see adjustments up in the finals.
