Idol Wins Over Clinton, Obama, Romney, Mccain, Et Al
With its rivals offering heavy coverage of Super Tuesday primary results, Fox continued to draw viewers who were more interested in a contest of a different sort. American Idol once again dominated Tuesday's ratings, recording a 16.2 rating and a 24 share, far ahead of all the election coverage combined. Among the networks that did offer election coverage, NBC led with its 10:00 p.m. feature capturing a 4.4/7. ABC which offered coverage of the elections throughout primetime -- and beyond -- averaged a 4.2/6, while Kathy Couric's election-night report from 9:00 p.m. to 11:00 p.m., drew just a 3.4/5.
