Ratings Breakdown:
Fox led the Thursday overnights opposite a night of all repeats on CBS, with a one-hour edition of still potent American Idol tops for the night with a 9.6 rating/15 share from 8-9 p.m. But compared to the year-ago evening (11.1/17 on 1/26/12), this was a loss of 13 percent. And this will, no doubt, remain the ongoing pattern this season. Mariah Carey/Nicki Minaj update: all quiet last night!

Leading out of American Idol was Glee, which sunk to third with a 4.5/ 7 in the overnights from 9-10 p.m. Comparably, retention for Glee out of the 8:30 p.m. portion of Idol (10.0/16) was only 45 percent. And former failed time period occupant The Finder was stronger with a 5.5/ 9 one year earlier. Like any high school based series (think The White Shadow, for example), bringing in new students to inject interest is an uphill battle that is never won.

MORE MORE UPDATE 1/25: Well, they aired it, seemingly unchanged. And it’s now for sale in the US iTunes store. They also got in touch with my peeps to basically say that they’re within their legal rights to do this, and that I should be happy for the exposure (even though they do not credit me, and have not even publicly acknowledged that it’s my version – so you know, it’s kind of SECRET exposure). While they appear not to be legally obligated to do any of these things, they did not apologize, offer to credit me, or offer to pay me, and indicated that this was their general policy in regards to covers of covers. It does not appear that I have a copyright claim, but I’m still investigating the possibility (which I consider likely) that they used some or all of my audio. I’ll write something longer and more detailed about this when I can get my head together about it probably in a couple of days. Thanks for your support, but please continue not to burn anything down.
