Home Celebrity “X Factor” Continues to Make Poor Showing in Ratings

Thursday’s  “The X Factor” had another bad night. It fell from the night before, and was beaten by another rerun of “Big Bang Theory.” I think the audience is sending a message. No one at Fox is listening. But the show is a flop and it’s only been on twice this season. The season actually hasn’t started, and that’s the scary part. Soon “X Factor” will be up against first run episodes of returning shows, not just reruns.

He is the writer and co-producer of "Only the Strong Survive," a selection of the Cannes, Sundance, and Telluride Film festivals, directed by DA Pennebaker and Chris Hegedus.

  1. It’s Simon. There’s something so smug about him. It worked on AI until he showed his boredom. But he def looks like he’s bored of this show and he’s so smug. Maybe he should be the Jimmy IO on the show and give his critique off the judge table and let the ladies do the judging.
