American Idol Resumes Slide
Despite airing opposite repeats of CBS's usual ratings leaders The Big Bang Theory and Two and a Half Men, Fox's American Idol saw another night of fading ratings on Thursday. The talent contest attracted 11.90 million viewers in the 8:00 p.m. hour, down nearly 10 percent from the previous week. However, even as a rerun Theory held its own, posting 11.19 million viewers and edging out Idol among viewers 18-49. Another Theory repeat at 9:00 p.m. drew 10.75 million viewers, easily topping Fox's Glee with 6.39 million. CBS continued to dominate at 10:00 p.m. as Person of Interest remained in the lead with 8.56 million viewers.
