Fox Cruises To Another Wednesday Win
With repeats dotting the usually solid lineups on ABC and CBS, Fox had a dominating victory last night. American Idol held nearly all of last week’s rating, averaging a 5.4 adults 18-49 rating from 8 to 10 p.m., down very slightly from a 5.5 last week. Compared to the same night last year, Idol was down 9% from a 5.9. It was, of course, the night’s top-rated program, and Idol-fueled Fox also beat the combined average of ABC, CBS and ABC on the night.
