'Touch' has been a pretty good hit for FOX, it's series premiere was watched by over 12 million viewers. Since its premiere in March 'Touch' has been streadily dropping in viewers, losing half of its audience. This past episode on May 3rd was watched by only six million viewers. FOX is giving the series another chance most likely because of Kiefer Sutherland is attached to the series and FOX loved '24.'
With 'American Idol' as its lead in, it really shows how poorly the series is doing when you consider 'American Idol' is viewed by over 16 million viewers.
