Overnight TV Ratings -- "Idol" A Monster
American Idol was watched by 33 million people last night. That's more than all the five competing networks...combined. It is a monster. Which makes the success of The Unit at 9 p.m. all the more impressive. It built on a weak lead-in and did just fine, which is more than can be said for Scrubs and Sons and Daughters and most of the other shows. Boston Legal and Law & Order: SVU did fine at 10 and must be thanking the gods they're not on earlier in the evening.
