Thursday Ratings: Idol Beats The Voice and DWTS

Ratings are in from TVByTheNumbers

FOX was the number one network among adults 18-49, while CBS was on top in total viewers.

On CBS, Big Bang Theory was Thursday night’s top program, scoring a 4.6 rating among adults 18-49, up 12% from last week’s 4.1.

On FOX, American Idol earned a 3.9 adults 18-49 rating, down from last week’s 4.0. Touch got a 2.1 in adults 18-49, up 11% from last week’s 1.9.

Idol has a tendency to trend up in the final ratings, so look for the numbers to probably be about even with last week when all is said and done.
