Wednesday Ratings: American Idol Keeps Falling

Ratings are in from TVByTheNumbers

American Idol drew a 5.9 adults 18-49 rating last night, down 9% vs. a 6.5 rating last Wednesday (although typical upward adjustments in the final ratings are likely to trim that decline by a tenth). That was also down 34% from the third Wednesday telecast a year ago that averaged a 9.0 adults 18-49 rating and 25.16 million viewers.

Fox easily won Wednesday night with both total viewers and adults 18-49 with ABC in repeats and CBS mostly in repeats.

American Idol averaged 18 million viewers last night.
