TV Ratings: Tuesday a Bed of Roses for FOX
What an uneventful day Tuesday has become. Apart from yet another win for FOX's invincible combo of "American Idol" and "House" and a lackluster return for The CW's "Veronica Mars" there is little to report.
The kiss of Simon powered FOX to a smooth 8 p.m. win with 25,75 million viewers. "American Idol" continues to attract similar audience as all competing networks combined.
"House" then brought an average of 21,27 million viewers to FOX. There was however erosion of about a million viewers in the second half hour.
"NCIS" on CBS remains the only competing program capable of standing up to the almighty "Idol" with 13,7 million viewers at 8 p.m.
ABC's "Dancing with the Stars" at 9 p.m. pulled in 15,8 million viewers to its latest results show.
At 10 p.m. "Law & Order: SVU" beat an all-new "Boston Legal" (11,3 vs. 10,2 million viewers.)
Finally, "Veronica Mars" returned with 2,44 million viewers. Will the CW ax swing?
