Ratings: The X Factor slips slightly
The X Factor had a 3.6 adult rating which is down 10% from last week — however, it is usually adjusted up later in the afternoon so the dip won’t be as “bad”. The show is still holding on to 10+ million viewers so I still consider it “steady.” I now think we are going to see some really depressing numbers for Sunday and the next two weeks when the show moves to Tuesday. Airing on different days specially for a new show can really confuse viewers.
Big Bang Theory was the #1 show with a 4.4 rating.
Fox’s The X Factor was down four tenths of a point (10%) vs. last week to a 3.6 adults 18-49 rating. It has seen upward adjustments in the final ratings this season which will likely narrow that decline. That was still enough to put Fox on top the nights adults 18-49 ratings.
CBS’s The Big Bang Theory scored a 4.4 adults 18-49 rating down a tenth from last week’s rating, but still easily topped all broadcast shows for the night. Person Of Interest recovered up a tenth of a point vs. last week to a 2.7 adults 18-49 rating.
The CW’s Vampire Diaries jumped 14% to a 1.4 adults 18-49 rating, and The Secret Circle was even with last week’s 0.8 adults 18-49 rating.
