TV Ratings: "Idol" Beats All Networks Combined
The highly-anticipated elimination of Sanjaya Malakar was a TV event that helped FOX's "American Idol" score 28,18 million viewers, almost 300,000 more than last week's edition beating all competing networks combined.
The timeslot premiere of NBC's comedy "Thank God You're Here" didn't generate any ratings to write home about, but it did manage to add almost a million viewers to last week's two-month high for "Friday Night Lights" (7,17 million).
Although "LOST" lost 170,000 viewers, it did win the timeslot (opposite CSI: NY and Medium repeats) with 11,75 million viewers and a strong victory in the crucial 18-49 demo.
Earlier in the evening time period premiere for "Notes from the Underbelly" at 8:30 retained most of the audience of its lead-in "According to Jim." Since Jim is on its last legs, is that enough for the rookie comedy to survive?
