More people watched American Idol than all other broadcast networks combined between 8p-10p last night where FOX averaged over 28 million viewers.
I've already spoken my peace (or piece) on Big Brother and Jericho this morning and seeing the actual numbers for the shows didn't change my opinion any. Neither show could manage even 6 million viewers. If there's any silver lining (and really, there isn't) it's that ABC stinks worse on Tuesdays right now. Its "comedy" lineup is in the toilet and it doesn't seem to be helping out Boston Legal any either. BL finished dead last in the 18-49 demo at 10pm (Jericho finished 2nd, or next to last).
NBC placed a very distant second overall for the night, but all things considered Biggest Loser holds up better against AI than anything else and it won the 10pm hour with a repeat of Law & Order: SVU.
CBS best performer? A rerun of NCIS.
