Broadcast TV Ratings for Tuesday, February 5, 2008

American Idol and House combined to give Fox a now common Tuesday night win. The more interesting bit of news though was the post-Super Bowl bump for House. Turns out it had basically no bounce.

House dropped 20% among viewers (5.81 million) and 30% among adults 18-49, and only grew 3% among viewers and adults 18-49 from the episode that aired before that Super Bowl episode.

Fox finished in first place for the evening with a 14.7/22 household rating/share, 25.52 million viewers and a 10.1/24 rating/share among adults 18-49.

GO TO WEEKLY RATINGS PAGE

Note: Network average numbers from the week prior are based on fast national data. Comparison’s from the week prior (or episode-to-episode, etc.) on specific shows are based on final national data. Ratings for the current day are based on fast nationals. (Expect all three scenarios to be the case at all times, unless otherwise noted). The final rating for first-run episodes that aired this evening will be reported the following week. So for example, the final rating for tonights episode of “American Idol” will be reported in next weeks report for Tuesday, February 12, 2008.

Also keep in mind that because these are fast national ratings, numbers may increase or decrease when the final nationals are released.
