  • Kevin

    The Following is supposed to be above POI. It had more 18-49 viewers.

  • Vanessa

    @ Kevin

    This is for overall viewers. POI is number 4.

  • Justin121

    American Idol nocked off both lists in 1 season.

    From #1 to Out of the top 5.

    Wow.

  • MichaelChickless

    Go POI and The Following! The 2 best shows on broadcast TV!

  • Darcy

    In the 18-49 chart, when there is a tie for key demo why is not the higher number of 18-49 viewers above lower number of 18-49 viewers – specifically for Fox shows: The Following, Glee, The Simpsons and The Cleveland Show.

  • Leondre

    My Prediction:

    Idol will fall below a 3.0 in late April or May.

  • Justin121

    Early April.

  • Joe

    wow. Survivor with 9.5 million viewers, and almost makes it to the Top 10.
