More than 11 million American Idol fans picked Fantasia Barrino, 19, and Diana DeGarmo, 16, as the show's first two finalists. (I hope someone's keeping a close eye on my girl Jennifer Hudson. The poor dear looked hungry for a Shards O' Glass Freeze Pop.) The next batch of eight perform on Tuesday. In other Idol news, Tuesday's performance edition ranked as the night's top program with more than 26 million viewers. UPN's America's Next Top Model, meanwhile, scored its largest audience to date 7.13 million viewers. And ABC cheered the return of NYPD Blue after a 10-week break. The cop drama which wisely chose not to blow up the incomparable Charlotte Ross drew a season-high 11 million viewers.
