Lady Gaga trumps Sinatra

New York - Memo to "American Idol" producers: In 2010, Lady Gaga beats Frank Sinatra.

The Nielsen Co said that last Tuesday's performance show devoted to Sinatra songs arranged by Harry Connick Jr had the smallest audience of any regularly scheduled "Idol" episode since 2003. The next night, when Lady Gaga appeared, the show's audience increased by more than 2 million viewers.

ABC's "Dancing With the Stars" was the most popular prime-time show last week, narrowly beating the "Idol" with Lady Gaga. The seven most popular scripted series were on CBS, which won the ratings race.
