Last week, American Idol earned a 4.3 adults 18-49 rating. Two weeks ago it scored a 4.6. Will it continue its downward trajectory, or will viewers tune back in for the Las Vegas rounds, which start tonight? Make your prediction, then discuss your favorite contestants in the comments section.


  • NBC Fan

    On the same night a year ago, Idol dropped a full ratings point from it’s ratings a week ago.

    What I Hope for:
    Modern Family:3.9
    American Idol:3.3

    What I predict will happen:
    American Idol:4.1
    Modern Family:3.8

    3.9-4.0 JLO knew what she was doing when she didn’t return, AI is a sinking ship!

  • SirGamma

    Idol is old and tired. Time for a reboot.

    @Crysti.. Thanks for saying that as it is so true. Im not a Voice fan, but 2/10 chances I may watch for Shakira and Usher.

    “For some reason, I thought it read ‘The Americans’. I could not care less about AI’s ratings…”

    Nice. :)

    4.1 and 14M and something.

    Last time someone asked this question (I think it was 2/6), I gave Idol a mulligan (I predicted 5.2), and it got wasted bad (it came up 4.6). Not this time! I’m thinking, AFTER ADJUSTMENT, 3.7-3.8 in the 18-49, and probably 12.9 to 13.2 million total viewers.

    If tonight’s 18-49 for the girls comes up 3.5 or less, beware the guys’ night tomorrow, because we could see 2s and probably under 12 million.

    “Ameri-flop-dol! 0.8!”

    Only if they’re foolish enough to stay for 2017 or 2018.

    On Jeopardy today, there was this question

    “This 7-letter term means “antiquated”.”
    What is Nielsen?

    4.1-4.2, my guess.

    I agree with Bob ( 99 % of other shows WISH they had Idol’s ratings !! ) and Crysti ( At least Idol’s contestants have careers – and Grammys and Oscars – after the show ) I think this is a good season. There are a lot of very talented singers. I’m already torn about whom to vote for !

    American Idol is a joke now. Fox needs to let it go. The glory days are over. What a flop! I bet they are kicking themselves in the arse for paying that has-been Mariah that 18 mill now.

  • Scot

    4.0 I won’t be surprised if Idol is only pulling 3.0’s and high 2’s by the end of the season.

    Idol typically falls until the second week of March.

  • Patrick Ausgewahlt

    American Idol will never die. Only Family Guy and The Simpsons get anything close to this for FOX.
