American Idol is continuing to fight off competition from Dancing With the Stars to hold on to the top spot in the US as prime-time television's most popular programme.

The music talent show drew 22.5 million viewers Stateside on Wednesday and another 20.3 million for its results show the night after. Dancing With the Stars had 20.1 million US viewers on Monday and 16.3 million for its results show.

This year's Idol features original judge Randy Jackson along with new judges Jennifer Lopez and Aerosmith star Steven Tyler.

Former Mad About You star Paul Reiser's return to NBC was for a considerably shorter time than his first. After The Paul Reiser Show had less than 2.4 million US viewers for its second episode last Thursday, it was pulled from the schedule, possibly forever.
