The first half hour of Fox’s American Idol vied with CBS’s The Big Bang Theory Thursday night, and it appeared that — like last week — ratings results for the two shows among adults 18-49 would come down to a photo finish when final numbers are counted, with actual differences statistically insignificant. According to preliminary figures, each show experienced a sharp drop in total viewers with American Idol dropping to 16.6 million total adult viewers from last week’s 18.3 million in the 8:00-8:30 segment, while Theory dropped to 15.5 million total adults from last week’s 16.2 million.
