American Idol Gets Spanked In Ratings…By NCIS!

| Filed under: TV NewsAmerican IdolThe VoiceReality TV


Maybe they should change the title to "Only Some Americans' Idol." Something to think about!

American Idol fell in that ratings AGAIN last night and for the first time, lost to scripted show, NCIS.

NCIS raked in 18 million viewers versus Idol, who nabbed 15.6 million. Combine this with a 16.8 million average between NCIS and its baby-sis, NCIS: LA, it looks like Idol took a real shellacking!

But there is a silver lining: Idol dominated the key 18-49 demo, owning a 5.0 share over NCIS' 3.4. As long as they keep hold of the key demo, they should still be in business … but for how much longer?!

With The Voice breathing down its neck, Idol needs to step its game up!

    Not surprised at all. My biggest problem with idol is that they spend too much time on auditions. I might start watching again when they get to the top ten, not much point before that.

    I have watched American Idol religously since Season 2! The best season so far was the year Adam Lambert was on….I'm not sure that season can be beat. This year the talent is lacking, to say the least! There is absolutely NO excitement, and it seems the judges, and the contestants, are just going through the motions. This is not just a talent contest, it's a SHOW…ENTERTAIN ME!! :) Give me a reason to tune in every week! At this moment, I will not be watching American Idol next year…I'm bored.

    And yet, this is NCIS' lowest number this season. HA! NCIS usually has almost 20 million.

    Re: mmichelle2u – I agree. The year with Adam was the best.

    Your picture, on the above thread, that of course has 'COMMENTS OFF' is disturbing.
    You look like you have AIDS or had the trots from visiting some 3rd world country.
    Get better.

    I'm not surprised considering we ended up with 2 country bumkins last year- what's the point of watching? The truly talented will never win in an age where every kid over the age of 8 has a cell phone and can spend 2 hours texting their votes every night

    I visit my mom and she has it recorded. I agree these judges are a snooze. Watching the contestants last night except for one they were all boring and superficially, boring looking. I have no interest in cookie cutter boys and girls, I am talking Fantasia (hated her singing(screaming)) and Adam had distinct looks. Even Ugly quirky would work for me, even some a good looking one. Where is that "certain s/thing" Simon talked about.

    I'm surprised it didn't get walloped by informercials for toe fungus. "American Idol" is more wretched than a pile of steaming rabid dog feces.

    Tyler and Lopez are boring stiffs devoid of any personality.

    LOL! I wasn't even aware Idol came on Tuesdays. I was one of the people who tuned into NCIS and NCIS: Los Angeles. Damn American Idol. I love to see Mark Harmon and Pauly Perrette, more than I would love to see a bunch of mediocre singers on AI.
