Home Media “X Factor” Hobbled Again in Ratings by Every Show in its Time...

Last night between 8 and 10pm people watched a lot of TV. But the show they watched the least was “The X Factor.” Simon Cowell’s dying on the vine contest finished last in total number of viewers in that time period. From “Criminal Minds” to “Survivor” to “Modern Family,” the evening was a blood bath for “The X Factor.” The show grabbed 5.5 million viewers. “Criminal Minds” by contrast: 12.29 million. “The X Factor” was ranked 7th for the period between 8 and 10pm, losing to shows I’ve never even heard of. (“Back in the Game”?) If tonight proves historically accurate, the “X Factor” numbers will be down again. Thursday shows are always a fall off from Wednesday. “American Idol” had better be looking at this. They’re next.
