Tuesday Ratings: American Idol Falls Still Wins the Night, Smash Hits Series Low

American Idol falls. Although NCIS beat it in the first hour, it still wins the night. Smash hits a series low. Idol airing outside of its usual schedule likely contributed to its fall. Smash is DOA. Enjoy it while you can.
