Jermaine Jones

Whether or not Jermaine Jones' American Idol disqualification was a ratings ploy all along, it didn't do much to lift the show's numbers.

Wednesday's two-hour episode — which teased Jones' dismissal for concealing a criminal past at the start before showing the pre-taped footage more than an hour later — drew 17.9 million viewers and ...

American Idol

American Idol's ladies weren't too far off of the boys' performance — ratings-wise, that is.

Idol's female semifinalists performance show won Wednesday for Fox with 17 million viewers and a 4.9 in the adults 18-to-49 demo — a tenth below Tuesday's rating.

No Grissom and no Willows? No problem for CSI.

The veteran drama was one of two shows Wednesday to see a ratings bump, when it introduced Elisabeth Shue's Julie "Finn" Finlay, pulling in 11.1 million viewers and a 2.7 rating in the adults 18-to-49 demo (up 2 and 8 percent, respectively).

Ratings: American Idol Holds Steady in Demo

Steven Tyler, Jennifer Lopez and Randy Jackson

Those writing about the inexorably declining ratings of American Idol will have to stand down for at least a day as the amateur talent competition stayed even with last week in the industry-prized 18-to-49 demographic, according to preliminary Nielsen figures.

Now, we'll have to see if the cliff-hanger involving the hopeful who fainted and fell off the stage gooses the ratings for Fox. (By comparison, fair or not, NBC's The Voice grabbed 17.69 million viewers with a 6.6 demo rating Monday night on its first regularly scheduled airing.)
