Fox’s medical drama “House” matched its “American Idol” lead-in for the first time Tuesday night.
“House,” which is arguably the only returning network drama to have significantly gained ratings strength this season, earned an 8.9 rating among adults 18 to 49, according to preliminary Nielsens.
“Idol” scored the same, though its rating is down 13 percent from last week. Since “Idol” typically runs over about two minutes into “House,” however, the numbers will likely shift slightly in the nationals.
It’s about time. House is an awesome show. Sure, each episode is about the same format, but it certainly lacks the sleezy cheezy drama of Grey’s Anatomy. Plus, American Iwanttoproduceonecrappystudioalbum Idols’ Seacrest is a tool.
