Thursday Ratings: Idol Slumps

Ratings are in from TVByTheNumbers

On the eve of Good Friday and heading into Easter Sunday, shows were down across-the-board. Looks like we need to add a “Close to Easter” square to our Fan Excuse Bingo cards.

Fox won the night with adults 18-49 (though head-to-head from 8-10p, CBS bested Fox). The Big Bang Theory topped the night with a 4.2 adults 18-49 rating, down half of an adults 18-49 ratings point from last week, but American Idol was down six tenths to a 3.8 adults 18-49 rating so The Big Bang Theory still easily led.
