The Super Bowl and Grammys are long over. The Oscars are coming up this weekend. So, for now, it’s back to “normal” atop the weekly prime time ratings. Fox’s American Idol led the way with the top two programs for the week.
The Wednesday night Idol had an estimated 990,000 viewers on WNYW/Channel 5 with a 5.0 rating, according to Nielsen. The following night’s Idol registered 953,000 viewers and a 4.9 rating.
The NBA All-Star Game on TNT had a third-place finish with a 926,000 fans and a 4.7 rating. TNT’s coverage of the always entertaining All-Star Saturday night tied for eighth (807,000/4.1).
The Big Bang Theory and Modern Family also tied for third.
WNBC had just one appearance in the Top 30 with Law & Order: SVU at 27 (536,000/2.7).
PBS’ Downton Abbey finished in a 20th-place tie (570,000/2.9).
There’s more from the Top 10 after the jump.
