N.Y.C.’s Weekly Top 10 in TV: New Yorkers Love American Idol. NBC? Not So Much

97652883 N.Y.C.s Weekly Top 10 in TV: New Yorkers Love American Idol. NBC? Not So MuchIt’s that time of the year again, (post football, pre NCAA basketball tournament, pre baseball) when the only competition New York TV watchers can agree on is…American Idol.

During the week of March 8, Fox and CBS dominated the local ratings. At the same time, NBC failed to crack the top ten. And ABC barely made it, just managing to grab onto the final position.

All hail the Idol.
