tribe TV viewers have spoken…
American Idol, you have been beat by Survivor for the first time EVER!
It was a photo finish but the long-running CBS reality show appears to have edged out FOX’s singing competition by only a few hundred thousand viewers and a fraction of a rating’s point!
Survivor: Cagayan won Wednesday night with an audience of 9.86 million viewers and a key demo rating of 2.5 while A.I. came in second with 9.57 million watching at home and a 2.3 rating among adults 18-49.
Damn that’s close!
There is a catch however…
The Eye network had ACC and SEC conference tournament basketball being broadcast into the 8pm hour so the ratings COULD very well change.
But the fact that these two shows are so close is huge news! American Idol used to BURY their competition deeper than an immunity idol hidden in the sand!
Can Jennifer Lopez, Keith Urban, Harry Connick Jr., and the contestants from Season 13 save the series from being voted off TV completely??
