Just what Fox needs: more news about American Idol's ratings freefall.
More viewers in the advertiser-coveted 18-to-49-year-old demographic watched a cable show, A&E's Duck Dynasty, than American Idol on Wednesday night. The season finale of Duck Dynasty topped Idol in the demo by 34 percent, according to The New York Times.
Duck Dynasty attracted a total of 9.6 million viewers, a record for an A&E show.
Fox can take solace in the fact that Idol drew a bigger audience overall than Duck Dynasty, or any other show on broadcast TV. It averaged 12.5 million viewers for the night.
A Hollywood Reporter story earlier this week claimed Idol producers were so concerned about the show's ratings dip that it considered replacing judge Mariah Carey with former panelist Jennifer Lopez in midseason. Fox has denied the report.
