'American Bible Challenge' has success despite 'American Idol'
Futon Critic released the cable ratings for Thursday (yesterday). For those of you who do not remember, The American Bible Challenge season finale was pushed back a week from its original May 16th finale date. This was mainly due to the American Idol season finale, which attracted 14.3 million viewers, the lowest rated finale.
Still, the first rerun slot of American Bible Challenge at 9pm received 585K viewers, 76,000 viewers in the 18-49 demo. Most new episodes since March have averaged between 692,000 viewers and 850,000 viewers, besides the season premiere of 1.15 million.
You can still vote online for your favorite American Bible Challenge team of this season through Sunday. The winner will be revealed in the finale on Thursday, and will win an additional $10,000 towards their charity.
