Thursday Ratings: Idol Dips, Glee Rises

American Idol dipped 8% from last week’s numbers. But look at Glee! Up 47% at 9:30pm!  But I suspect Glee will be adjusted down (and Idol up) due to a 2 minute Idol overrun.  The Big winner, Big Bang Theory, was down from its last original episode on February 21.

On FOX, a 90 minute American Idol scored a 3.5 adults 18-49 rating down 8 percent from last week’s 3.8Note:  The show ran over two minutes, so both it, and Glee are likely to be adjusted in the final ratings. At 9:30, Glee earned a 2.5 adults 18-49 rating up 47 percent from a 1.7 its last episode on February 14 when it aired at 9PM.
