    Well that’s good for Xfactor, but the show is still a flop. We’ll see how it does this week and on with competition lol.

    Very smart for FOX to put a new The X Factor on Thanksgiving, specifically because it had the Redskins-Cowboys game as its lead in. Without it, it probably would have gone below a 2.0. No question it rated highest in Eastern and Central Time Zones since that’s where The X Factor followed football. The X Factor fans, please thank RG3!

  • Rich

    X Factor & Glee aired on time in the Los Angeles area. of course,XF was tape delayed.


    So reruns of TBBT & 2BG did beat Glee

  • AA

    That is huge ratings for xfactor on a thanksgiving night lol

    @Chris, I don’t know about the X-Factor fans thanking R.G. III. The X-Factor “fans” that use Twitter* were downright angry** that the X-Factor was delayed by football.

    *A very small percentage of the audience, by any measure. Not enough to draw any meaningful conclusions about the audience as a whole.
    **At least very vocal about their displeasure.

    amazing f x factor i hope this week up

  • Kangarookeeper

    Only reason why X Factor rose was because of the huge lead-in from Washington – Dallas game. Otherwise it would have gotten a 2.0 rating.

  • mula

    very good numbers for x factor!!!

  • Sutra

    These ratings are wrong, Glee, The X-Factor and The Big Bang Theory aren’t that many viewers.

    The right is:

    The X-Factor – 8.63
    The Big Bang Theory – 6.31
    Glee – 5.69

    Sutra, shut up.
