"American Idol" ratings drop to all-time low

"American Idol" is singing the blues.

On Thursday, Fox's "Idol" reached a new all-time ratings low against ABC's "Grey's Anatomy" and CBS' March Madness.

Fox still managed to just barely win the night in total viewers with 7.53 million viewers for the night, but its 2.0 rating among adults 18-49 put it behind ABC and CBS. The show's hour-long results episode garnered just over 11 million viewers and a 2.7 adults 18-49 rating. And according to The Hollywood Reporter, that was the lowest rating for any "Idol" episode in the show's entire history. It was also down 7 percent from last week's results show.

Tell us: What do you think of this season of "Idol" so far?
