Wednesday Ratings: Idol Down From Last Week, On Track to Beat The Voice

Ratings from @FOX_Research:

@AmericanIdol was the No. 1 program last night in A18-49 (5.3/15), A18-34 (3.6/12-tie w/ Modern Family) & Total Viewers (17.9 million)

Idol beat last night’s No. 2 program in A18-49 by +20% (5.3/15 vs. 4.4/12, Modern Family) & by +56% in Total Viewers (17.9m vs. 11.5m, CSI)

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

The Voice final ratings for this week were 5.2 14 14.51 So, unless Idol is adjusted downward, they will win the week.  However, the numbers are down from Idol’s 5.7/16 18.69 rating last week.

From TVByTheNumbers:

With a 100% original night on English broadcast, Fox esaily topped the night’s adults 18-49 ratings even as American Idol slipped 7% vs. last week to a 5.3 adults 18-49 rating compared to a 5.7 rating last week, although adjustments in the final ratings have tended to narrow that gap by a tenth.

Idol’s dip isn’t bad when you consider many series hit season lows last night, including “The Middle” and “Modern Family”.  “Survivor” was down from last week.
