Wednesday Ratings: American Idol Still No. 1

Ratings from @FOX_Research:

@AmericanIdol was the No. 1 program last night in Adults 18-49 (4.7/14), Adults 18-34 (3.2/11), Total Viewers (16.7 million) and all demos

Last night, #FOX won its twelfth consecutive Wednesday night among Adults 18-49, Adults 18-34 and Total Viewers #AmericanIdol #Season11

Idol beat last night’s No. 2 program by +57% in A18-49 (4.7/14 vs. 3.0/8, Criminal Minds) & 40% in Total Viewers (16.7m vs. 11.9m, CSI)

Dancing with the Stars (8-10:01PM) 2.9/8 16.87
The Voice (8-10PM) 4.1/11 10.83

Last week Idol numbers FOX American Idol (8-10 PM) 5.3 15 17.871

Once again, Idol beats The Voice in both viewers and in the demo.  DWTS can’t match Idol’s demo, but has slightly more viewers.

Idol may gain a ratings point or two when the final numbers become available next week, but it looks like the ratings will still be down compared to last week.

From TVBYTheNumbers:

American Idol was down 11% — six tenths of an adults 18-49 rating point to a 4.7 rating, but Fox still dominated the night with adults 18-49 and total viewers.  Note that last week’s Wednesday ‘Idol” was adjusted up three tenths in the final national numbers.
