American Idol drops to all-time low...
Last night was up from last Thursday with better performances across the board. The Big Bang Theory rebounded in both viewers and the demographic to lead the night. Grey's Anatomy was up for ABC and a one hour The Office and the season finale of Parks and Recreation helped NBC. Meanwhile, American Idol hit an all-time low in the demographic, while Scandal fell a little. CBS' Person of Interest and Elementary were down in viewers but steady in the demographic.
