Ratings: 'American Idol' wins another weekly race

Posted on

The weekly ratings report is beginning to sound like a broken record: Once again, Fox’s American Idol took the top spot with its two episodes drawing 24.4 million and 24.1 million viewers for the seven-day period ending April 19. ABC’s Dancing With the Stars — which started its season nipping at the heels of American Idol — stayed firmly put at No. 3, drawing 19.5 million viewers. CBS’ CSI (No. 4, 15.7 million) and the results hour of Dancing With the Stars (No. 5, 15.2 million) rounded out the Top 5 for the week.

The rest of the Top 20 included no surprises. There were no new premieres or specials to speak of, so it was filled out with Two and a Half Men, Desperate Housewives, a host of CBS procedurals, and The Amazing Race, to name a few of the usual suspects. The full Top 20 is after the jump.
