Hell's Kitchen Falls 2 Spots in Season To Date 18-49 Ranking

American Idol on FOXConsidering these are seasonal averages, not weekly results, Hell's Kitchen's fall of 2 spots from #8 to #10 in season to date adults 18-49 was quite a move. It's early momentum has cooled, but it's still a very successful show.

American Idol continues to hold the top two spots in the season to date race for both adults 18-49 and total viewers. The Tuesday edition's STD adults 18-49 average and viewer average both improved on their levels from last week.

Desperate Housewives again saw both its season to date averages slip a bit, but maintained the #3 spot for 18-49 and the #6 spot for total viewers.
