“American Idol’s” second nationwide live episode was down in the ratings Sunday, but it still led the night among adults 18-49.
“Idol” scored a 1.6 in the 18-49 demographic for ABC, pending updates, off 0.2 from the previous week’s preliminary 1.8 (which later adjusted up to 1.9). It was, however, one of just two shows to crack 1.0 for the night; the other was “America’s Funniest Home Videos” (1.1). Following “Idol,” “Deception” was off a tenth of a point at 0.7.
The season finale of “The Last Man on Earth” earned a 0.7, even with last week and with last season’s final episode. “The Simpsons” held steady with last week’s preliminary 0.9 (it adjusted up in the finals), but “Bob’s Burgers” (0.7, -0.1), “Brooklyn Nine-Nine” (0.7, -0.2) and “Family Guy” (0.9, -0.1) all declined.
“Instinct” (0.7) and “NCIS: Los Angeles” (0.8) each rose a tenth on CBS, but “Madam Secretary” fell a tenth to 0.5. “Timeless” also dipped a tenth to 0.5 following two episodes of “Genius Junior” (0.5 and 0.6).

|Total Viewers (millions)||6.16||7.38||1.66||2.74|
Rating: Estimated percentage of the universe of TV households (or other specified group) tuned to a program in the average minute. Ratings are expressed as a percent.
Fast Affiliate Ratings: These first national ratings are available at approximately 11 a.m. ET the day after telecast. The figures may include stations that did not air the entire network feed, as well as local news breaks or cutaways for local coverage or other programming. Fast Affiliate ratings are not as useful for live programs and are likely to differ significantly from the final results, because the data reflect normal broadcast feed patterns.
Share (of Audience): The percent of households (or persons) using television who are tuned to a specific program, station or network in a specific area at a specific time.
Time Shifted Viewing: Program ratings for national sources are produced in three streams of data – Live, Live +Same-Day and Live +7 Day. Time-shifted figures account for incremental viewing that takes place with DVRs. Live+SD includes viewing during the same broadcast day as the original telecast, with a cut-off of 3 a.m. local time when meters transmit daily viewing to Nielsen for processing. Live +7 ratings include viewing that takes place during the 7 days following a telecast.
