americanidol200picLOS ANGELES, California (X17online) - American Idol's season finale was the lowest the show has ever seen.

Both the lack of total viewers and a slide in the 18-49 demographic contributed to the Season 11's failed finale.

The AI finale delivered a preliminary 6.1 rating/18 share in the key demo. The previous low took place during Season 9 when the finale scored an 8.2 in the ratings.

NBC's The Voice and NFL football were both the highest-rated shows for the evening.
