Home Television TV Ratings: Simon Cowell’s “X Factor” Loses to “Big Brother,” Hits Series...

Simon Cowell has bigger problems than fathering his best friend’s wife’s child. His “X Factor” hit a series low on Wednesday night and lost to CBS’s “Big Brother.” This, according to www.tvbythenumbers.com. And it’s worse than that: The “X Factor” premiere at 8 pm had just over 6 million total viewers. At 9pm on NBC, another similar show, “America’s Got Talent,” had 9.79 million. The startling drop in “X Factor” ratings could be because the show is bad. But it also could be attributed to Cowell’s negative publicity of late. The scandal involving him, his best friend, and the friend’s wife– which includes fathering a child with the wife– may have turned viewers off to the once hated and loved “American Idol” host. What’s also interesting is that on Fox, more people tuned in at 9pm to see “Master Chef,” having not seen “X Factor.” Stay tuned…
