That episode was a mess. Lot of comic talent being wasted here.
Ratings are stable,
but the show is losing a lot of American Idol
's lead-in, suggesting that it's just riding the coattails. I'm sure FOX will have another show among their upcoming pilots that will make better use of that timeslot. I doubt it'll get a renewal.
American Idol led into week four of sitcom Breaking In, which finished first among adults 18-49 (2.6/ 6) and second in total viewers (7.61 million) at 9:30 p.m. But the retention out of the 9 p.m. portion of Idol was only 33 percent in total viewers and 36 percent in the demo, which keeps it on the “loser’s” listing.
