TV Ratings Tuesday

Against a CBS repeat line up, American Idol dominated the ratings even more completely than last Tuesday, and both ABC’s Lost and NBC’s Parenthood gained vs. last week.

American Idol was up 2% from last Tuesday (and 1% from the comparable show last season) to a night dominating 8.3 adults 18-49 rating, more than the other four English language networks combined on the night. For Idol watchers keeping track at home, the show is down just 5% in adults 18-49 ratings on a season to date basis.

ABC’s Lost was up a tenth of a point to a 3.9 adults 18-49 rating vs. last week, but since it overran 6 minutes into the 10pm hour, the final ratings will be likely revising that number upwards. On the flipside, the special V clip show’s 1.9 rating will likely be revised downwards.

NBC seemed to be the biggest beneficiary of the CBS repeat night, as Biggest Loser was up 7% to a 3.0 rating and Parenthood was up a whopping 17% to a 2.7 rating.

The lack of new episodes on CBS didn’t help the CW at all, as 90210 tumbled 22% to a 0.7 adults 18-49 rating and Melrose Place fell a tenth of a point to a 0.5 adults 18-49 rating.
