Ratings Report: Slight Decrease for American Idol

at . Comments

Let's hope the economy reacts better to Barack Obama than American Idol did.

Pushed back to Wednesday due to President Obama's Congressional address, Idol's performance show was down one million viewers from last Tuesday's, from 25.4 million to 24.3 million. It still dominated the evening, of course.

Among other primetime pickings:

  • Airing opposite Idol at 8 p.m., a special Biggest Loser (8.9 million) was respectable.
  • Going opposite Idol at 9 p.m., Lost (9.8 million) was down 1.6 million viewers from last week.
