    Wowww The Voice beating Idol in adults and viewers!!!

  • Jeff (Canada)

    Been a while since an actual scripted show (and not a singing show or sports) topped the 18-49 chart, hasn’t it? I know that in the fall it’s literally just football and the kickoff show that’s in the top spot for the whole football season.

    Good for Modern Family being the #2 scripted show of the week. Its ratings may be down but it’s still good enough to be #2.

  • JR35

    It’s been better for OUAT, but No. 23 isn’t bad (it should be listed behind Family Guy, no?)

    American Idol results missing the demo top 10.

  • Judy912

    Glad to see ‘CASTLE’ was the fifth most watched scripted program of the week with the overall audiences. Also the most watched drama program on the ABC network. WAY TO GO CASTLE!!

  • Phlox

    the voice is the new show, of course it will get high rating… but it will sink later on after people get tired of it. American Idol will stick around a long time.
