X Factor Ratings Plummet! Series Hits an All-Time Low
This has not been The X Factor’s week. First, a technology snafu leads to the first round of Season 3 voting going completely awry. Then, because of the glitch, the contestants must perform brand new songs less than 24 hours after their last Live Show, leading to questionable song choices and an all-together hurried, uncomfortable episode.
This week’s episode posted only a 1.5 rating in adults 18 to 49, the lowest ever for a regularly scheduled competition episode according to Deadline. Whether that’s just for the X Factor or for all regularly scheduled competition shows isn’t clarified.
Either way, let the bad news sink in for a minute. Sunk? Yep, so’s the X Factor.
