The finalists on American Idol were pared to the top ten Wednesday night as Amanda Overmyer got her walking papers during the talent contest's results show. Unlike the tearful departures of some other contestants, Overmyer appeared to take the decision in stride. "It's been a run," she said. "Number 11 out of all them people was more than I could ever expect." Unfortunately, Number 11 also eliminates her from the lucrative American Idol concert tour, which features the top-ten finalists. Once again Idol drew more viewers during the 9:00 p.m. hour than all of the competing network shows combined, averaging a 15.6 rating and a 24 share, representing 25.53 million viewers. Earlier in the evening, a special Wednesday edition of CBS's Survivor: Micronesia won the 8:00 p.m. time slot, edging out Fox's high-flying The Moment of Truth.
