TV ratings: 'Idol' final three carries Wednesday

Fast National ratings for Wednesday, May 12, 2010


"American Idol" narrowed its field to the final three on Wednesday, and that was enough for Fox to hold off CBS and win the night's ratings race.


FOX averaged 12.1 million viewers and a 7.2 rating/12 share in households for the evening. CBS finished second with 10.4 million viewers and a 6.6/11. NBC (6.45 million, 4.1/7) was third, followed by ABC (6 million, 3.8/6), which saw its comedies improve but "Happy Town" continue to fall. The CW scored 3.75 million viewers and a 2.4/4.


In the adults 18-49 demographic, FOX's 3.9 rating led the pack by a decent margin. CBS came in second at 2.6, with ABC at 2.2 and NBC at 2.0. The CW drew a 1.7.
