TV Ratings: iHeartRadio Music Awards Beats 'Idol'

Between Fox's "American Idol" and NBC's iHeart Radio Music Awards, Thursday night television seemed dominated by wannabe pop-chart-toppers and those who have already made it big, but CBS emerged on top in the ratings with its comedy lineup, according to The LA Times.

The iHeart Radio Music Awards, the latest entry in a long list of galas to honor pop stars, drew 5.4 million viewers overall and a rating of 1.7 in the key 18-to-49-year-old demographic.

Those numbers aren't spectacular for an awards show, but they were better than NBC typically does with its Thursday comedies.

The show, brought into existence by radio giant Clear Channel and Ryan Seacrest Productions, also managed to beat "American Idol" among those key young adults. "Idol," now in its 13th season, sank to a new Thursday low of 1.5 in 18-49, in which a ratings point equals about 1.3 million viewers.
