A one hour Thursday edition of American Idol led FOX to the top of the leaderboard again in both total viewers and the 18-49 demo. Indeed, it had almost twice as many viewers as Survivor: Micronesia. It's not that Survivor isn't performing pretty well -- I mean come on, it's like its 117th season, but AI is just a ratings beast. AI is like the New England Patriots were for 18 weeks. Except for this: Idol *will* actually go undefeated!
In the 9pm hour, Lost won with the most viewers and most 18-49 viewers but interestingly was third in HH Rating behind the solid Don't Forget the Lyrics and an encore CSI. It appears that last week's lost LOST viewers were not in fact Valentine's Day related. It could be the show is just getting too crazy and confusing for some, although I confess I am enjoying it so much I DVR'd my fave, Supernatural which had one of its better nights with 3.2 million viewers. And... my DVR spazzed iTunes for me.
Lost had 13.53m compared to 13.62m last week (2/14) and 15.06m the week before (2/7). It will be interesting to see if the DVR LIVE+7 numbers are going up.
At 10pm CBS crushed the field. New episodes of Eli Stone and Lipstick Jungle were no match for a repeat of Without a Trace. See for yourself:
