Ratings: 'American Idol' dominates Tuesday

Posted on

American Idol‘s viewership was back up from last week’s drop, gaining the 7 percent it had lost, and easily winning Tuesday evening. Sliding its way into second was the Dancing With the Stars results show, which was also up slightly from last week. Fox’s Fringe and ABC’s Cupid stayed steady. And even though CBS had 8 and 9 o’clock reruns (NCIS and The Mentalist), the network still came in second for the night in total viewers.
