Fox is likely cursing out the Winter Olympics this morning... while giving thanks that it won't need to face that event for another four years.
Likely due to such competition, American Idol suffered through its least popular night of all-time on Thursday.
The reveal of the final 13 netted only 9.2 million viewers and a 2.4 rating among 18-49-year olds.
It was a slow night all around for any non-NBC network, but they (and viewers) can all take solace in a major night of new programming next Thursday...
The Olympics: 19.9 million viewers
The Big Bang Theory rerun: 10 million/Mom rerun: 7.1 million
American Idol: 9.2 million
The Taste: 3.1 million
The Originals rerun: 910,000
Rake: 4 million
Reign rerun: 720,000
Two and a Half Men rerun: 6.5 million/The Millers rerun: 5.3 million
Scandal rerun: 2.5 million
Elementary rerun: 5.3 million
