X Factor & Glee Launch FOX To #1 In The Ratings!

| Filed under: TV NewsBritney SpearsSimon CowellDemi LovatoGleeX FactorThe Voice

But we can still do better! C'mon Gleeks and fifth judges! The season has begun!

Simon Cowell can't be thrilled, but he shouldn't be too concerned. X Factor's ratings in the target demo dipped a bit, but his reality singing competition still helped FOX win the night.

The season 2 premiere was easily beaten by both The Voice and America's Got Talent on Wednesday, but even without NBC's biggest competitor, the latest episode dropped three tenths of a point in the coveted adults 18-49 rating.

Although Cowell and company gained over a half million total viewers on Thursday night, it slipped from a 3.4 adults rating to a 3.1.

Glee, on the other hand, attracted more of the target audience to the network when it came on at 9 p.m. and scored a 3.3 18-49 rating. However, last season's premiere garnered a 4.0 rating in that category.

Now that AGT is over, which attracted 10.5 million total viewers last night, maybe a few more will tune in to watch Britney Spears, Demi Lovato and L.A. Reid pick America's next singing superstar!

    why don't you talk about NBC paying Direct TV and Comcast to stop woeking when the xfactor is on. We all know the xfactor is going to kick their ass

    nobody wants to watch a medicated zombie and a fat latina with mental disorders. Simon wasted his money big time.

    Demi Lovato is not fat. she's beautiful so shut the fuck up, & x factor is WAY better than the voice.

    The ratings are jacked because Comcast and Direct TV arnt transmitting in some cities.And besides XFactor is more popular worldwide but ratings in the US seems to be more important.On a last note Demi isn't fat,if your saying then you might be some obese dude/chick or a super skinny person who has noting better to do then critic some one you never too the time to understand.Even if Xfactor does get cancelled(which I doubt) Demi and Britney are still fucking rich and more relevant than u

    If you pay someone 15 million dollars for SEX you don't want to settle for a hand job.
    No REFUNDS. XFACTOR is a FIFTY (50) Million dollar show pulling in ratings 33% less than its first year. Its good to see Simon loose. Turns out Cheryl Cole was the XFACTOR!!!

    Britney and whatshername were like 2 pieces of wood that's why. The only thing to come out of the X factor show was Britney's series of unflattering facial expressions which seemed to occur at unnecessary times. They could have edited it 100% better for the first show, thrown in some funny acts, something..it was the most boring thing I watched last night.
