Ratings: 'Idol' wins Wednesday, 'Top Model' returns

The men of American Idol topped the ratings chart Wednesday, but their performance night didn’t best the ladies’: roughly 2 million more viewers tuned in Tuesday for the women. Speaking of the fairer sex, The CW debuted a new season of America’s Next Top Model, followed by the new series High Society, which couldn’t hold on to the crowd.
