'IdoL' Down Again
Another Wednesday, another win for Fox's "American Idol" — and another five-year ratings low. "Idol" (22.9 million viewers, 8.2 rating/ 21 share in adults 18-49) continued its decline at a time of year its ratings usually increase. Aside from its "Idol Gives Back" special, it hasn't shown week-over-week growth since February.
