Preliminary TV ratings show ‘Idol’ dropping while ‘Whitney’ and ‘Chelsea’ Rise

American Idol saw a night of dwindling numbers. It recorded only a 5.9 among adults aged between 18-49 on Wednesday night. The numbers did pick up during the second half of the show. But it could not even match its previous week’s ratings which were 6.5 among the same age group. The difference is almost 9%. The same week last year, the ratings were as high as 9.0.

When American Idol saw a drop in its points, Mobbed came to the rescue. Fox maintained a 4.4 for the night. Mobbed airing after Idol had a good chance to boost up its viewership. It almost doubled its ratings since the first time it was broadcasted.
