Ratings: 'American Idol' dominates a slow Wednesday

Posted on

The only show hitting double digits (in millions, that is) on Wednesday was American Idol. Fox also topped the 8 p.m. hour with Human Target, while NBC’s Law & Order: SVU took the 10 p.m. crown. Without a new Cougar Town as its lead-in, Ugly Betty dropped to 3.3 million viewers. She made the appointment to get her braces off, people. Come back next week.
