Wednesday Ratings: American Idol Continues to Drop

The good news is that Idol competed against mostly repeats last night, allowing it to come in at #2. The bad news is the ratings dropped compared to last week–dipping below a 2.0. Survivor is also down, but continues to beat Idol in both the demo and viewers.
