Ratings: Two-hour 'Idol' takes no prisoners

Posted on

NBC’s Life lost 30 percent of last week’s audience, while the viewership for ABC’s Lost dipped 10 percent. But it’s not like the time-travel drama’s all washed up ashore like waterloggy Jin. Lost did post its fourth week in a row as Wednesday night’s top-scripted program among Adults 18-49.
