Ratings Breakdown:
Song bested dance in the household overnights once again on this first Sunday in May with “American Idol” on ABC (#1: 4.2 rating/7 share from 8-10 p.m.) 62 percent above competing “World of Dance” on NBC (#3: 2.6/ 5). Jeremiah Lloyd Harmon, who departed on ”American Idol,” should have been the winner in my humble opinion.
At 10 p.m., ABC’s “Shark Tank” finished second with a 2.5/ 5 in the household overnights, which was 47 percent above competing “Good Girls” on NBC (#3: 1.7/ 3). Both series are confirmed to return next season.
Due to the PGA Golf Tour, CBS’ primetime line-up was slid back approximately 20-minutes. Results by individual program, therefore, are approximate. Of note, and this is not positive, was noticeable erosion for night two of CBS limited series “The Red Line,” which already started modestly one week earlier.
