Last night’s “American Idol” moved to 9pm and died. The results show scored a 2.2 rating and 8.76 million total viewers. That’s it, folks. Fox moved “Hell’s Kitchen” to 8pm and it did worse. At least “Idol” increased those numbers. But it does mean, just like last week, no one is watching the second part of “Idol” to see who’s in and who’s out. From 9 to 10pm the audience drifted to “Two and a Half Men” (I don’t know why) and “Grey’s Anatomy.”
Meantime, Robin Williams’ sitcom, “The Crazy Ones,” was one of two shows CBS didn’t automatically renew yesterday. “Crazy Ones” pulls about 7 million viewers, but they are out of the key demo. They’re probably my age. Robin Williams is just great in the show, and I hope there’s some Emmy activity for him this summer. He’s a national treasure.
