Wednesday Ratings: American Idol Slides, Stays #1

American Idol fell this week. But keep your eye on the afternoon adjustment. Idol will probably gain at least a tenth of a point. What counts is that it’s still the #1 show for the night.

On FOX American Idol earned a 3.8, down two tenths from last Wednesday’s 4.0 adults 18-49 rating. Nashville earned a 1.5, up a tenth from last week’s 1.4 adults 18-49 rating.
