Sunday night on broadcast TV:
If ABC’s “American Idol” got Queen Latifah to come sing on their show, they’d each have hits.
As it is, QL’s “The Equalizer” on CBS beat the “Idol” return last night at 8pm by a million viewers–6.95 mil vs. 6.01 mil.
At 9pm, “Idol” pulled ahead of CBS’s “NCIS Los Angeles” by just a nose.
All in all, CBS won the night, but ABC narrowly beat them in the age demo. Younger people watched “Idol.” But more people watched the CBS line up.
Where was everyone else? On cable, watching the SAG Awards, “Euphoria,” and “Billions.” We’ll know more about that tomorrow.
Meanwhile, Zendaya has released a single with a UK singer named Labrinth, it’s a song that was on “Euphoria.” She has a lovely voice. He has issues. As in “Dune,” Zendaya only appears at the end of the song.
