Thursday Ratings: Big Bang Repeat Beats American Idol

A repeat of Big Bang beat American Idol in the ratings this week. Yikes.  However, Idol ran over a couple of minutes and will probably be adjusted up. The number of viewers should adjust up too, closer to Marc Berman’s numbers.  Still, that the ratings are even close is not a good thing.

Glee ratings are down from last week’s school shooting episode.

On FOX,  American Idol notched a 2.9 adults 18-49 rating down 9 percent from last week’s 3.2. However, the show ran two minutes over, so its ratings are likely to go up in the final ratings, Glee earned a 2.2 adults 18-49 rating down 8 percent from last week’s 2.4.
