Fox Wins Wednesday With ‘Idol,’ ‘Truth’

Feb 7, 2008  •  Post A Comment

Fox’s “American Idol” gained a little ground in the ratings Wednesday night with a preliminary 10.4 rating among 18-49 year olds. The talent show nudged up 3% from last week’s entry (10.1), according to preliminary Nielsen results.
Following “Idol,” “Moment of Truth” took second place for the night with a 7.1, but the lie-detector test program lost 9% in the ratings from last week’s 7.8. This week’s “Truth” had a former underwear model tackle skeletons in his closet about stuffing his briefs.
With “Idol” and “Truth,” Fox handily won the night, posting an 8.7 in the 18-49 year old demo, and pulling in a total of 21.5 million viewers.
CBS came in second for the night with a 2.7 in the 18-49 demo, anchored by a new episode of “CSI:NY” (3.2), plus repeats of “Two and a Half Men” (2.5), “The Big Bang Theory” (2.1), and “Criminal Minds” (2.7). “CSI: NY” won its 10 p.m. time slot.
ABC took third place (2.5 for the night), with new episodes of “Wife Swap” (2.5), “Supernanny” (3.0) and “Cashmere Mafia” (2.0).
A new episode of “Law & Order” (2.9), a “Law and Order: Criminal Intent” episode repurposed from the USA cable network (2.2), and a repeat of “Deal or No Deal” (1.9) gave NBC fourth, with a 2.3 for the night.
The CW brought up the rear in fifth (0.7) with a clip show of “America’s Next Top Model” (0.8) and a “One Tree Hill” repeat (0.6).
