AMERICAN IDOL DOWN JUST A TAD FROM LAST WEEK

American Idol stanched its ratings bleed on Wednesday. The once-dominant talent show drew 8.79 million viewers, virtually flat with the 8.77 million who tuned in a week earlier. (The difference was statistically insignificant.) It dropped a tenth of a ratings point among the 18-49 age group, from a 2.1 rating to a 2.0. It was beaten handily, however, by CBS’s Survivor, which averaged 9.62 million viewers and CBS’s Criminal Minds, with 10.25 million. CBS also made it a clean sweep for the night in the 10:00 hour with CSI: Crime Scene Investigation, which drew 9.65 million viewers.
