‘Crossing’ Gets OK Start, ‘Idol’ Hits New Low

American Idol and the series debut of The Crossing did not make for an effective combination for ABC in the Monday overnight ratings. Idol drew a 1.4 rating in adults 18-49 and 7.1 million viewers from 8-10 p.m. Not only is that a drop off of nearly 20% in the key demo from last Monday, but it also marks a new season low in both measures for ABC’s revival of the singing competition series.
