Ratings dip but 'American Idol' gets the ads

This undated image released by Fox shows judges, from left, Keith Urban, Nicki Minaj, Randy Jackson and Mariah Carey from the singing competition series, "American Idol," airing Wednesdays and Thursdays on Fox. In its 12th season, "American Idol" is managing to hit the right notes with sponsors if not always with fickle viewers. It has retained its status as TV's advertising leader among series and the loyalty of its biggest backers, including Ford and Coca-Cola. (AP Photo/Fox, Frank Micelotta)
