Wednesday’s Nielsen Overnights – 19% Decline from the Same Night Last Year

From Mediaweek:

Once again it was a robust victory for Fox care of American Idol, which averaged a 17.6 rating/26 share in the overnights from 8-10 p.m. But compared to one year earlier (21.6/31 on Wednesday, Jan. 17, 2007), that was a decline of 19 percent. Keep this in mind as the season progresses.

We’ll see if the ratings increase if this Season picks up some steam…

UPDATE:

Once again it was a robust victory for Fox care of American Idol, which averaged 30.28 million viewers and a 12.6 rating/30 share among adults 18-49 from 8-10 p.m. But compared to one year earlier (Viewers: 36.94 million; A18-49: 15.5 rating/36 share on Wednesday, Jan. 17, 2007), that was a decline of 6.66 million viewers and 19 percent among adults 18-49. Keep this in mind as the season progresses.
