‘Idol’ Blows Away the Olympics, Yet Again

Feb 25, 2010  •  Post A Comment

Two hours of the top 12 men singing were a major draw on Fox’s "American Idol," giving the network a sizable win in the Nielsen ratings.

"Idol" posted an 8.7 rating in the 18-49 year old demographic, according to TVbythenumbers.com.

That was well-ahead of NBC’s coverage of the Winter Olympics’ 4.9 in the same demographic and time period. For the night, NBC averaged a 5.2 rating in the demo. 

All other TV shows were reruns for the night.
