Ratings Report: Idol vs. CSI!

by at . Comments

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.
