    I wonder who will be getting fired at FOX.

  • SM

    LOL X Factor USA what a flop even with britney Spears no one gives a sh*t.

  • Josh

    Fox is > then NBC

  • Jenny

    Looks like even though The Voice has more viewers The X Factor is younger skewing.

  • Mark

    Pretty amazing that Big Brother was even with last week, considering the increased competition from two heavily-hyped reality shows. I wonder what BB’s budget is compared to The Voice & The X Factor?

  • SimonSays


    The Voice >>>>>>> Flop Factor

    Xtina >>>>>>>>>> Britney

    its 1999-2000 all over again.

  • Dan

    lmao…I remember some people saying Xfactor was going to do over 15 million and demo around 5.0. What a colossus flop. I wonder how its going to do today hahaha

  • gui

    I love it when people get to feast on crow. The last few days on here I saw people predicting as high as a 6.0 in the demo for X Factor because of the Brittney effect. Give me a break, she is about as tired as all of these singing, talent, dancing, skating, and other shows of that type.

    what the heck is “> then”?

    You mean “greater than” or just plain >

    Cbs and abc will make gains once their shows are back; people don’t want to be the part of nbc/fox war so they’ll stay away.

  • thomas32

    Good to see Guys with Kids hang on with no declines. I hope NBC moves it to Fridays when Whitney starts.

  • Josh


    You know what I meant don’t be a smart a**

  • Andy

    NBC won the night! Wow. Laughing at you fans and haters! Anyway, Oh Sit! held up well.

  • Holly


    people don’t want to be the part of nbc/fox war so they’ll stay away.

    Isn’t that like saying people will watch Revolution because they want to stay away from the Castle/5-0 war? Silly comment wars are unlikely to affect real life viewing habits.

  • Dan

    Jenny you are wrong. The voice premiere(in its third season) got a 4.2. So not only does the voice have more viewers but it also skews younger than flopfactor!

    #GuysWithKids premiere 1/4hr #tvratings: 10pm 6.855m viewers 2.4/7A18-49, 10:15pm 5.641m viewers (-17.7%) 2.1/6 A18-49 (-12.5%)

  • John A

    Im tired of all ‘The X Factor is a flop’ comments. If a scripted show had a 3.4 it be a huge success. Its ratings are low but a flop? No

  • TONY

    X Factor should increase tonight….
    if it doesnt then its in serious trouble

  • leo

    This is just for one night let see how is x factor doing for the nexts weeks, the voice win a battle but i thing the x factor it’s going to win the war……….

  • Pierre

    @ John A

    Thank you, its annoying because you know that most of the people throwing that word around don’t even know what the word flop or bomb means.

    How can a show that peaks with a 3.9 be considered a flop?
