‘American Idol’ Returns To Rule Sunday Ratings
American Idol returned for its third season on ABC on Sunday, with the venerable music competition show scoring a night-leading 1.5 Live+Same Day rating in the adults 18-49 demographic and 8.05 million total viewers. It led a night of primetime that otherwise took a breath after a stretch that included the Grammys, the Super Bowl and the Oscars the past three Sundays.

The two-hour auditions kickoff for American Idol‘s 18th season overall bested by two tenths the demo rating for the show’s May’s season finale, which had drawn 7.71 million viewers in comparable early numbers, and was off two tenths from its last season premiere in March. Last night, it gave the network the overall demo victory.

ABC started the night with America’s Funniest Home Videos, which was Sunday’s second highest-rated show. Fellow 7 PMer 60 Minutes was the night’s most-watched program, helping CBS to the nightly viewership win.
