'Idol' Rolls on While 'Stars,' 'Club' Post Gains

May 7, 2008 1:10 PM

Women's Murder ClubABC’s “Dancing With the Stars” and “Women’s Murder Club” posted ratings gains this week, with “Stars” hitting a season high on Tuesday.

ABC finished the night in second place with a 3.0 rating/8 share in the 18-49 year old age group, according to preliminary Nielsen research.

“Stars” (4.4/11) rebounded 7% over last week, and was helped by a “Stars” special (2.4/7) lead-in. “Club” (2.2/6) also bounced up 22%, the third-highest rating for the program.

But “American Idol” (8.2/23) and Fox (6.7/18) rumbled to another no-sweat win yesterday. “Idol” fell 9% from last week. “Hell’s Kitchen” (5.2/13) also dipped 4%. Those numbers may change when final results come in because “Idol” ran two minutes into the 9 p.m. time slot, affecting the measurement.

“NCIS” (2.8/8) hit its previous season average on CBS (2.3/6), while “Shark” (2.2/5) stayed flat.
NBC’s “Law & Order: SVU” (3.5/10) struck out against primary election news coverage, falling 15% to a series low. NBC (2.1/6) ended up fourth.

The CW’s (0.9/2) “Beauty and the Geek” (0.7/2) and “Reaper” (1.0/3) were both down a tick from last week.
