Wednesday Ratings: American Idol Falls in Double Digits

Ratings are in from TVByTheNumbers

Fox easily won the night despite American Idol falling 16% from last week to a 5.1 adults 18-49 rating. That’s down a whopping 35% vs. last year’s equivalent telecast (7.9 adults 18-49 rating on Wednesday, February 23, 2011). Idol will likely be adjusted up a tenth or two in the finals but that won’t make up for even the week over week losses.

Here are TheVoice ratings from Monday.  Final ratings were 6.0 in the key demo, with 16M viewers.
