X Factor Down Even More! Ratings Drop 11% From Last Week!

This is not good, Simon Cowell. Not good at all. Let's just hope things start to pick up for you when you get into the real competition.

Last night, The X Factor soured further as ratings went down 11% from last week. The show brought in a 3.9 with adults 18-49, landing them just over 11 million viewers. That wasn't enough to compete with CSI, Criminal Minds or the juggernaut that is Modern Family, who brought in 13 million+ viewers.

But more so, it sure as hell won't be able to compete with American Idol with those numbers. Plus, in comparison, Dancing With The Stars pulls in at least 16 million viewers per show, so Factor still has a lot of work ahead of them.

What are U going to do about this Simon? What's the game plan here?

X Factor is an EXPENSIVE show to produce!

P.S. On the bright side, X Factor helped give FOX another Wednesday win among Adults 18-49 last night!

    Well…it is because people are DVR'ing other new season episodes from Sunday Monday Tuesday and catching up on Wednesday.

    Re: Douche Hunter – I agree!! that's what I have to do! there are too many good shows on right now…but i LOVE the x-factor



  3. 3

    i agree its a good show
    its just there are to many singing competitions
    i think everyone is more intrigued now by actual shows and writing



  4. 4

    Re: Douche Hunter – Nope … Wednesday is Modern Family. Thursday is catch up day :-)

    To much sports going on right now and have no time to watch! I'm sure you dont have that problem Perez. I prefer those type of shows in the winter time after the holidays.

    I love Cheryl Cole and wont watch because of how the whole situation with her was handled AND because they replaced her with Nicole whatevertheeffherlastnameis, whom I don't like at all. Would have much rather had Cheryl. Was excited for the show before they booted her.



  7. 7

    may be it will do well at the live shows!

    i think the uk show was better(the judging panel)



  8. 8

    The timing is off, all the new tv shows, the end of baseball season, football just started. Talent contest work best in the summer or mid season replacements.



  9. 9

    There are too many singing shows now. I personally don't like this show because its personally made to be too cheesy. The way they over edit the thing makes me cringe.
    Last week, I caught a editing flub when they kept showing each judge asking a particular contestant questions and at one point, they showed Nicole wearing something completely different! I can't stand the constant shots of the cheering audience but the next shot will be at Simon for example and the audience will be completely quiet. Just way too much over editing.

    people are sick of watching no talents go to auditions for 5 minutes of fame…give us real talent competing instead of this stupid auditions and we'll start watching…



  11. 11

    So a picture of 5 incredibly unimportant people of this century. No matter how hard they try to look cool, they aren't, and the show isn't. AI was successful just like Star Search was. It wasn't the genius of its creators or judges. It was simply a novelty being injected into an idiotic public. :)



  12. 12

    LOL at the excuses.

    American Idol is more about the talent than the judges. The producer Nigel Lythgoe is the best in the BIZ. X Factor is like Americas got talent meets Idol meets Jersey shore. It so set up looking and the presenter is a joke.



  13. 13

    I hate it for these reasons: nicole and paula are such bitches to the girls, i was really excited for cheryl, i havent seen anyone who was outstanding and so many people are getting in who would never get into idol.



  14. 14

    X FACTOR SUCKS ! WOW Simon and Paula TOGETHER AGAIN HOW BORING it's so American Idol been there, done that, so i'll pass. from a proud American fan of Cheryl



  15. 15

    and one more thing TO Simon you are a HORRIBLE PERSON you will never beat American Idol.



  16. 16

    LOL! Serves Simon and his huge ego right. Somewhere Cheryl is laughing…



  17. 17

    SIMPLE CUZZ IT SUCKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKSSSSSSSSSSS !!!!! HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAH GAY FACTOR IS A FUCKING FLOP :( AND IM HAPPY CUZZ SIMON IS AN ASSHOLE GAY BITCH !!! NBCs THE VOICE IS WAY BETTER AND I CANT WAIT FOR THE 2TH SEASON AND XTINA S 2012 NEW ALBUM !!!!!!



  18. 18

    no shit sherlock, everyone is tired of all of these talent (i'm using that term loosely) shows.



  19. 19

    It could be that people are tired of singing competition shows in general? How many are there now? Though I will admit I'm a sucker for them and this show as well, the XFactor remains an over-hyped, super edited mess.



  20. 20

    X Factor is terrible. They are showing too many performances that are … TERRIBLE! Seriously, get a clue.



  21. 21

    Besides a few minor details this show is the same as IDOL. People have enough of that. Who cares if it's 5 million it doesn't matter to the viewers just the contestants.



  22. 22

    I'll watch when they get rid of that Nicole girl.



  23. 23

    from what i've seen of this show, it was a horrible decision for them to add paula



  24. 24

    Simon effed up. He should have got Dannii and Cheryl.



  25. 25

    Bring back Cheryl! I like her accent, it was lame for them to fire her. It shows how conceited they are over there if they think they're so good that audiences will be okay with such public douchery.



  26. 26

    well, what do you expect. america is stupid. their brainwashed with shitty shows. i did watch the xfactor and i will watch until the finale. it's a great show. heck it's better than idol. while america is watching shitty shows. i am actually watching a good show. i love simon.

  27. @v@ says – reply to this


    27

    Would you LOOK at Paula's legs. That right there is a dancer. He's lucky she leans on him.



  28. 28

    The biggest problem about this show is two women who call themselves judges



  29. 29

    Paula has GOT to be airbrushed there.



  30. 30

    I turned off the moment I heard Nicole Shitsinger was a judge. The idiots should have left cheryl cole! I think the producers were insulting us by thinking we would be impressed with Nicole over the cute and lovely accent of Cheryl. Sucks listening to that fake air head Nicole. Hope X factor flops wont ever watch it again!
