American Idol was still Wednesday’s top show, but trading timeslots with Human Target threw the ratings juggernaut off its mark: At 9 p.m., Idol was down nearly 5 million viewers from last week, when it aired an hour earlier. Human Target also took a slide, dropping more than 2 million viewers from its last airing in its later slot. Target, was, however, up against CBS’ Super Bowl’s Greatest Commercials 2010 special, which outperformed the Eye’s usual offerings in the 8 p.m. hour, The New Adventures of Old Christine and Gary Unmarried.
