    @Kaylie Neither The Voice or X Factor has created stars but The Voice slaughters X Factor in the ratings! ;-)

  • Josh

    LOL at Flop Factor fans pretending that show has created stars!

  • Brandy

    Lt, iit CW just looked at ratings yes,Nikita would’ve been gone by now but it supposedly does good internationaly and they’re trying to get it to 88 episodes for syndication.

    Last night’s SPN was a classic ghost hunt but it incorporated the main storyline as well and that’s why it was great. I wouldn’t mind the MotW stories if they exist in the show’s timeline instead of a separate plane the boys dropped into that apparently swallows their present and past.

    You are delusional, The X-Factor USA, that’s what matters not UK, is a crummy overproduced show… Face it, no cares about D-list stars Demy Lovoto, the black guy or Simon. And for Britney Spears, no wants cares about her, shes clearly on medication and Fox is probably REGRETTING giving her 15 million when the show can barely get 7 million viewers! Pathetic just like you

  • thesnowleopard

    Wow, just look at those ratings for SPN and Arrow. Both the demo and the audience are so healthy compared to the rest of the network except for TVD. Notice how there’s a gap between the shows doing well and the rest? They had that last year, too.

    See that button on your remote? Know what it does? It changes the channel! Why, you can even turn your TV off when there’s nothing to watch. I know! I was amazed, too!

    Cheryl Cole is a huge star yes indeed, but she and the other girls from Girls Aloud were discovered at a show called “Pop Stars” that was produced by Endemol, the same production company behind Fame Academy and.. The Voice.

  • SarahL

    Yes, The Neighbors kept its gains.

  • CrimTV


    I come from the UK, i’m not delusional. X Factor US and UK are both freefalling into ratings mayhem and The Voice US, like The Voice UK prevailed in the ratings. I enjoy XF US, but The Voice is the clear winner!

  • Kellix

    XFactor is a lot more fun, I find the Voice boring!

  • TV Show Addict

    @ Kellix

    Says one when one has probably not seen a full episode of the Voice. Fun is more than just laughing at weak auditions. Music lovers have a lot more fun listening to good singers than flashy productions.

  • Jason

    X-Factor got Chris Rene and Rachel Crow. Rachel Crow will be starring in a show in Nickelodeon and Chris Rene got his album charting on the BB200 and Young Homie sold at least 300,000 copies. Not too bad for X-Factor. Same can’t be said for Melanie. At least she got to do a SB commercial with Elton John. Not everyone can say that. Maybe this year winner will be more successful like Emblem 3?

    No one is watching these singing shows for the judges. I am not sure when FOX is going to see that. They didn’t realize it when Paula left American Idol and there was no ratings disaster. They didn’t realize it when Simon left and the show actually did better that next season. They didn’t realize it when Simon and Paula reunited on X Factor and the show failed to reach high expectations and now with Britney Spears.

  • CrimTV


    You live Emblem 3? They are the worst IMO. CeCe FTW!

  • hahaha

    Mention a The Voice Star of any Country.

  • Kangarookeeper

    NBC wins Wednesday. Normally it’s in last place. The power of The Voice is incredible.
