“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.
