Home Uncategorized “X Factor” Slaughtered by “Survivor” Return, “America’s Got Talent”

At this point, Simon Cowell may be a little worried. Wednesday night’s “X Factor” was slaughtered in the ratings. First “Survivor” returned at 8pm on CBS for its first hour. “Survivor” had 9.73 million total viewers vs. 6.62 million for “X Factor.”

Then during its final half hour from 9pm to 9:30m, “X Factor” by “America’s Got Talent.” The Howard Stern hosted competition had 11.19 million total viewers. Yikes.

Is anyone paying attention to “X Factor”? Not really. Even the “Big Brother” season finale beat it later, at 9:30pm, with slightly more eyes.
