Something about “American Idol” is just not clicking with the audience.
On Monday night, “Idol” ratings dropped again, this time to 6.9 million viewers. Last Monday, “Idol” was at 7.7 million.
On Sunday night, “Idol” dropped about a million viewers from the prior Sunday.
Meanwhile, “The Voice” remained in good shape with 9.3 million, down 500,000 from the week before.
It’s true that the ratings for these shows sag in the middle of their seasons while the competition works itself out. They come back for the big finales, certainly. But “Idol” is slowly eroding to the point where not many will care who the finalists are next month.
