Wednesday Ratings: Idol Ratings Lowest Since 2002

American Idol ratings were  down 3 tenths points from last week’s numbers and  hit its lowest key demo numbers since July 10, 2002.  I expect the Survivor Caramoan premiere had something to do with that. However the numbers for Survivor were down substantially from last spring’s premiere.  The good news? Nashville was up a tenth from last week.

FOX was the number one network in adults 18-49 and with total viewers.

On FOX, American Idol scored a 4.3, down three tenths from last week’s 4.6 adults 18-49 rating and the series’ lowest adults 18-49 rating since July 10,2002.

On CBS, the premiere of Survivor: Caramoan: Fans vs Favorites earned a 2.4 adults 18-49 rating, down substantially from last spring’s 3.1 adults 18-49 rating for the One World iteration. This is a new low for a Survivor premiere.

Nashville went up a tenth to a 1.8 after last week’s series low 1.7 among adults 18-49.
