“Idol” scored a 1.3 rating among adults 18-49 and 7 million total viewers, down around 7% in both metrics on last week. Its perhaps no surprise that “The Rookie” also ticked down given its weaker lead-in. After season high numbers last time around, the Nathan Fillion show posted a 0.7 and 4.5 million viewers this time around. An “America’s Funniest Home Videos” replay kicked off the night for ABC with a 0.8 and 5.1 million viewers.
