Featuring the luminous Gwen Stefani and a kick-ass performance by Gina, the 6 7-minute American Idol drew 26.84 million total viewers, a 2.6 mil drop from a week ago. A Dancing with the Stars recap show (10.8 mil) placed third behind an NCIS repeat.
House (22.18 million) topped the hour with 2.3 mil fewer heads than its last fresh outing. DWTS was watched by 17.6 million, a 1.5 mil increase over Season 3's first results show. Pussycat Dolls (2.6 mil) dipped 400K.
SVU (12.82 million) was up a mil from its last new entry. A Shark repeat bested the bow of ABC's excruciating Dream Vote thing (6.08 mil, shedding two mil during its back half-hour).
