    Whatever way you look at it, The X Factor still won the night…

  • Sam

    We’ll see how XFactor does against DWTS and The Voice

  • Michael

    Even though, it has HORRIFIC numbers, X Factor still came out on top for the night.

  • Billy

    Will you X Factor fans please stop. Those ratings are awful for a show that went up against no competition. CBS would have beaten it if CBS were not preempted in New York. X Factor is down a whopping 30% from last year. The X Factor will be in the 1’s when the competition starts.

  • Nothing But Cancellation

    No adjustments for The Pathetic Factor, also, LOL at Top Model Repeat.

    Grey’s and BBT will crush X-Factor, a BBT rerun almost tied it.

    It would be hilarious if even a NBC comedy beat X-Factor.

  • Mon

    Yeah, a night of repeats.

  • Billy

    @Nothing But Cancellation

    The only reason TBBT repeat did not beat X Factor last night was because it was preempted in New York, which happens to be the # 1 market. If it were show in the whole country TBBT would have beaten it.

  • Flame

    The only question we will have to ask in the future weeks is, will TBBT, double, triple or quadruple the X-Factor rating…

  • Jake

    Only reason X factor won the night was because CBS was PREEMPTED LOOL X FACTOR FANS JUST STOP LMAO

  • Shepherd

    Wow! A .6 for the Graceland finale is awesome! Best renewal decision of the summer. It should easily pull a .3-.4 for next year’s premier.

  • Shepherd

    oups. :-)

  • Mike


    I don’t believe xfactor airs against either of those shows…

    Voice is Monday and Tuesdays if I’m correct and dwts is just Mondays

  • Ultima

    @Amanda Kondolojy

    Wipeout was new last night.

  • Charlie

    Top Model repeat did horrible.

  • Scandalfan

    Simon needs to hire Paula back the ratings were better when she was on.

  • rob60990

    This site and my cable guide had Wipeout as a repeat. However, when I clicked for more info, it said Original Air Date 9/12/13. How odd. Looking ahead into the next few weeks, the same thing happens to Revolution, SVU, & Parks & Rec.

  • Bad Samaritan

    It’s kind of sick to me that X-Factor even got these ratings! Musical talent is like a natural resource. If you go to the well to often, you’re gonna run dry. And at this point, America is about as dry as a martini! There’s not a single singing competition show I’m planning to watch this year, period.

  • EatMorePez

    @James Sample

    Yeah, it won the night against four (count ’em 4!) other original shows. I’m sure FOX executives are popping the champagne right about now.

  • AllOfHerTwist

    Did they release finals for X Factor from Weds?

  • Flame

    @AllofHerTwist: Yes, it was adjusted up 0.1. The message is in the “Thursday Ratings” news post.
