Last night's wild card round on American Idol (21.2 million viewers, according to preliminary Nielsen figures) was an increase over the show's previous Thursday outing; it held off the Taylor Swift-assisted CSI (20.8 million) as the night's most-watched show.
What a shock, we know.
Among other primetime pickings:
- A Valentine's Day/bathroom-sex-themed episode of The Office was up over its season averages in total viewers (8.6 million) and within the key 18-49 year-old demographic.
- 30 Rock (7.4 million) enjoyed increased viewership, while Ugly Betty (6.4 million) suffered a drop-off.
