This year’s American Idol finale not only excelled in eyeballs this year – 32 million viewers, up 3% from last year - but winner David Cook was able to parlay his win into a sales coup on the iTunes platform. He had the top 4 selling songs as of last night. (The no longer available for free Gossip Girl is still the top selling TV show.)
Also a record 97.5 million viewer votes were cast. Imagine how many would vote if non-AT&T subscribers could SMS in their choices?
