    Damn, a RERUN of Dads almost tied MSQ.

  • Dillan

    Glad for X Factor. It may not be the best rating, but it’s better than a 1.9.

  • Michael

    to bad x factor adjusted up… hopfully its gont this year

  • Michael

    to bad x factor adjusted up… hopefully its gone this year

  • John A

    Wow cant believe X Factor struggling to get a 2.0 this early.

  • John A

    Damn TVD repeats so low. Id expect it to be at 0.4 as its the highest CW show. SPN get 0.4s in repeats.

  • John A

    I kind of feel sorry for X Factor but the judges are terrible and so is Mario Lopez. I watch some of it and Simon is the best part and even he aint that great.


    Simon looks to me just so just out of place in this show. It’s likes with this panel and it’s supposed to be a joke and randy and Paula are on a different set waiting for him. This show will get crushed next week when all new competition comes.

    And just when I thought GA and Scandal both repeated over a 1.0….Haha at X Factor it’s already struggling to get a 2.0. Dads repeated pretty good but not enough to save it on Tuesdays. I personally can’t wait for Thursday October 10th because it’s gonna be the 200th episode of GA versus the tribute episode of Glee.

  • Michael

    Oh man, X Factor should be very afraid of TBBT return next week!

  • Nothing But Cancellation

    American X-Factor is even worse compared to the british one.

    Most people could say that Britney’s absence is what is causing this, but X-Factor dindn’t improve its ratings even with her (also, she was a terrible judge).

  • j

    5th place indeed for X Factor.

  • Melissa


    I personally can’t wait for Thursday October 10th because it’s gonna be the 200th episode of GA versus the tribute episode of Glee.

    I think Glee will win.

  • Sharkey

    Maybe TBBT can have a show where they explain the rules of MSQ?

  • TP

    Dads repeated better than B99?????? :/

  • AllOfHerTw!st

    The Ouch Factor is stinging just a little bit less with that 2.0.

  • Michael


    2.0 during the auditioning process; TRAGIC! Frankly, even 2.0 during the LIVE episodes is pretty terrible, but this is just inexplicable. X Factor is really going to struggle this season!

  • Dan

    @TP – Maybe people didn’t like what they saw again and thought the next half hour would be worse.

    I wouldn’t look too much into repeats, everyone knows CBS’s comedy block will destroy NBC’s but just how badly I wonder.

  • rob60990

    X Factor will almost certainly be below a 2 next week and the results shows will struggle to crack a 1.5. After Glee’s first 3 episodes, people will go back to not caring about this show anymore. Why it was renewed for 2 seasons is beyond me. FOX better pray Sleepy Hollow holds up.

  • SJ

    Still a new series low for The X Factor. Just how low will it go?
