Thursday Ratings: Idol Continues to Fall, Glee Stays Even

American Idol continues its painful downward ratings slide. Nevertheless, while Glee’s ratings aren’t great, the show managed to stay even with last week’s numbers. A small victory.

On FOX, American Idol earned a 2.5 down 11 percent from last week’s 2.8 adults 18-49 rating, a series low for a regularly scheduled episode. Glee scored a 1.8 adults 18-49 rating, even with last week.
