The juggernaut that is American Idol slowed a bit on Wednesday, but Simon and Co. remain a force to reckon with. Last night's episode attracted 26.4 million viewers down from Tuesday's 33.5 million viewers. Some of that erosion can no doubt be blamed on Lost, which came in a strong No. 2 at 8 pm with 19.5 million viewers. Speaking of Lost, I can't believe they almost spoiler alert! killed the polar bear!
