Broadcast TV Ratings for Tuesday, February 19, 2008

Fox carried the evening thanks to a two-hour edition of American Idol. However, the program declined from last week’s near 30M mark, by 1.12 million viewers (-4%) and 9% among adults 18-49.

Elsewhere on the evening, a two-hour edition of Biggest Loser and a repeat of SVU put NBC in second place, ahead of third place finisher CBS, who saw its original programs Big Brother and Jericho suffer steep week two declines in their new seasons. Jericho was off by 1.14 million, or 16% among viewers and 23% among adults 18-49 from last week’s season two premiere. Not good news.

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 26, 2008.

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