American Idol Ratings: 2014 Season XIII Episode 3

Last night’s American Idol 2014 audition episode filled two-hours on FOX with some incredible talent and a vastly improved judges’ panel. So was it enough to bring in the audience after last week’s dip in ratings for Idol?

Recovering from its Thursday dip in ratings American Idol was back on the rise and won the night for FOX. Hooray!

American Idol pulled in 13.2 million viewers and was up three percent from Thursday’s viewership despite being down, as expected, from last Wednesday’s premiere night event.

We had hoped the show would do better on Wednesday thanks to positive word of mouth from last week’s premiere and that just might have been the case. It’ll be interesting to see how Idol does with a one-hour show tonight when the judges head to Atlanta.
