x factor uk ratings are down

Just when things seemed to be turning around for the show in the US…

For the first time in FOUR YEARS, BBC1's Strictly Come Dancing beat the UK version of X Factor in the ratings! Ouchie!

The Saturday night Halloween-themed broadcast of Strictly brought in an average audience of 10.1 million viewers, which was one million MORE than X Factor! Ouchie X2!

Here's what a source close to Simon Cowell had to say about it:

"Simon says it’s good to have some healthy competition. He says 'good on the BBC, well done.'"

And here's what a spokesman for the BBC had to say about it:

"We are delighted that more and more viewers keep tuning in to watch Strictly Come Dancing and that our Halloween spectacular was the most watched programme of the evening by far."

Should be interesting to see if Simon will be able to bring those UK X Factor ratings back up. Hopefully he's able to think of something quick!

Good luck!
