'American Idol' is now 3rd-rated competition show
NEW YORK (AP) — "American Idol" has been television's most popular show for nearly a decade. Now it isn't even the most popular competition show.
The Nielsen company said both "The Voice" on NBC and "Dancing with the Stars" on ABC had more viewers than both editions of Fox's "Idol" last week. "American Idol" has had a remarkable run at the top, finishing first among non-sports shows in prime time for nine seasons in a row.
"The Voice" was the most popular show last week among viewers ages 18 to 49 years old. That's the demographic that NBC seeks.
The most popular show on TV last week and for the year as a whole is CBS' "NCIS."
