Though we are now multiple seasons in of the same thing every season, we still like to watch. Boy do we! American Idol had its season premiere last night and the show came out singing. With a whopping 37.3 million viewers, the premiere episode is the second highest-rated to date.

American Idol Season Premiere Ratings

I don't know what Fox changed, but American Idol is up 5% from its premiere one year ago (according to Nielsen ratings). The opening night of auditions on American Idol averaged a 15.7 rating/36 share in adults 18-49 and 37.3 million viewers overall

The only other Idol episode to do better was the season finale between Ruben Studdard and Clay Aiken. I don't know about you, but I voted for Aiken. (see my bumper sticker)

The premiere completely shattered every other rating and has become the highest-rated entertainment telecast in adults 18-49 on any network since the series finale of NBC's Friends in May 2004. Yes, I was rooting for Ross and Rachel to get back together. I mean, come on!

While Fox is celebrating, ABC is high-fiving itself for pushing LOST back to 10PM in order to avoid this singing monstrosity.

Stay tuned for updates.
