American Idol 2012: San Diego Auditions Episode Will Re-air Tuesday

San Diego American Idol auditions

Some American Idol fans missed out on Sunday’s special night of San Diego auditions because the NFC Championship Game ran long, so Fox will repeat the episode Tuesday at 8 pm in Glee’s timeslot.

Not everyone missed the episode, however, Entertainment Weekly is saying that, according to preliminary ratings, American Idol earned a 7.9 rating among adults 18-49 and drew 19.8 million viewers.

The Glee spot the repeat is taking was going to be a re-run itself, so Fox is likely to pick up more viewers for re-airing the San Diego auditions.

American Idol 2012 is back Wednesday at 8 pm with a new round of auditions.
