X Factor's Thursday Ratings Down 12% From Last Week!

x factor ratings down again

Ouchie! Simon Cowell REALLY needs to get this under control.

Yesterday, we were reporting that ratings for The X Factor dropped 11% from last week…and now they've dropped even further.

The second Thursday installment of the show was down 12% from the premiere episode, with a 3.8 adults 18-49 rating.

Fortunately, X Factor once again helped Fox land the top spot for adults 18-49 on Thursday, but it should still be doing better than this.

As we said before, you need to develop a game plan here, Simon!

Good luck!

  1. 1

    There were too many singing competitions anyway.



  2. 2

    This show is like 85% singing, 15% 'etc'.



  3. 3

    Because it's fucking stupid. Another dumb ass singing show. This ain't the UK where campy ass pop music is the favorite amoung non gay people. This show sucks and needs to go away, like you.



  4. 4

    The show is boring, and its Idol with a different name slapped on it!! So this does not surprise me!!



  5. 5

    Simon is not as mean as before, LA and Nicole are boring, the singers who made it are just ok…so i guess there is nothing exciting about this show.



  6. 6

    I watched 10 mins of it last week, then changed the channel. It was boring, over staged and there is no chemistry between the judges. Simon and Paula are as amusing as tits on a turtle!!!!



  7. 7

    the voice is 10000 times better



  8. 8

    like DUH, too many singing competitions completely ruined the whole concept. bye, bye "X" -



  9. 9

    I like this show so much better than American Idol. Not sure why it isn't doing better!



  10. 10

    Fox is bleeding money on this show. :)



  11. 11

    no talents. that´s the problem. And shitty judges as well. We want Cheryl



  12. 12

    Re: jamess – the voice is the biggest joke ever. Nobody can sing there including judges. Horible show, stop watching after like 5 shows



  13. 13

    You can also just predict that Simon Cowell will try to turn this negative publicity into something positive.

    AHahhaa

    He overestimated his own talent. He refuses to believe that he is the reason AI was successful. He wasn't. This type of show will repeat itself again in 15-20 years. Like Star Search. The idea isn't new, it's extremely old and people are bored with it. The Gong Show was best ever.



  16. 16

    Re: Tremendous – i dont think so buddy. all 4 judges on The Voice CAN sing unlike the one on AI and Xfactor.



  17. 17

    Re: jamess – agreed!



  18. 18

    the show is amazing. since idol isn't on right now. this is what i'll be watching. people should really watch this. it's crazy good. but i wouldn't expect america to understand. america is stupid. i seriously don't know why people watch crappy shows. when they could be watching a good show like the x factor. haters go fuck yourself. good day!

    Re: hoochpit – your fucking stupid.



  20. 20

    Re: SlaveMeh – Your boring!



  21. 21

    Re: jamess – NO! The voice pretty much sucks. Idol & XFactor win hands down.



  22. 22

    Re: Baranged – aww, you jealous? because he has more money than you?



  23. 23

    Re: adg100 – The reason i watch x Fatcor is because of simon so yeah. you are so wrong. haha



  24. 24

    Re: joliepitt007 – haha man are you way off. none of the people on the voice can sing. adam levine. haha forget it. he can't sing for shit. christina aguilera all she does is try to hit the high notes by yelling and it just doesn't sound good. she screams too much and that fat ass black man what's his name? Cee LO green? who the hell is that man? who cares. he can't sing. haha he sucks balls.



  25. 25

    Re: adg100 – you do know that this show is super big in the UK but anyway i find it sooo funny that perez reports XFactor ratings but hasnt said a thing on 2 and a half men!!



  26. 26

    The "star search" rip off genre is saturated



  27. 27

    Change Nicole for someone else, no matter who, and you might get some ratings up. She is effing booooooooooooooooring.



  28. 28

    Re: Fluffynutter

    Because you suffer from brain damage. Idol has always been about the contestants.
    Flop factor is about Cowell and the judges.



  29. 29

    he chose awful judges. and an awful annoying host.



  30. 30

    it will get better after they start to weed out all the no talents. However, no Cheryl Cole= Nicole Schzinger (whatever MSP). She is like nearly worse than Kara Dioguardi, but maybe a smidge better.



  31. 31

    I enjoy The Voice because it is tightly edited and the judges have fun with each other. I've tried to watch XFactor, but it is soooo LONG and bloated. Plus, the Paula / Simon banter is SO ten years ago. Fortunately, Perez posts the best bits of XFactor so I don't have to sit through an insufferably long two hours filled with commercials, bad auditions and boring crap.



  32. 32

    It's two hours long and they put a commercial after every contestant. I'd rather spend my time watching something else. If they shorten the length and put only the talented then it would do better.



  33. 33

    i think it will do well when it goes live

    the ratings are fine but not huge



  34. 34

    America already has enough of talent competitions, Simon took too long to launch X Factor. Other problem - judging panel. Nobody cares now about Simon and Paula's relationship, which is fake. And Nicole might be talented, but she's soooo boring. Cheryl isn't the best singer in the world, but she was something new and fresh to US.



  35. 35

    I don't know why the numbers were down but what I would like to know is why there were several contestants put thru during the live taping that I attended that didn't make the show. I thought that they would at least show the young girl from Virginia with the sparkly sneakers and the dance moves to go with the amazing voice she had. Also, does anyone know what happened to the sisters that got through, they are the daughters of a Preacher or Minister and the youngest was pregnant? I know there was a question of timing.



  36. 36

    Nicole Sherzinger is boring and she's always looking for any opportunity to sing on the show.



  37. 37

    Watched first 30 minutes of first show, in DVR time. Changed DVR setting to Cancel. Had set for "record series." Awful TV. Idol cut the awful except for Funny Awful. The Voice went straight to Concert Quality. Who really has time/interest in such bad TV? And weird about Simon, Paula, the Paula Look-Alike and Randy Look Alike. … Too weird. About as bad as this year's rushed CMA Awards show. Argh. Delete!
