Simon-Cowell-blocks-his-e-001

From Showbiz 411:

This must hurt. “The X Factor” is just not doing well. We all know it. But on Wednesday night there was an added insult: Kelly Clarkson’s Christmas special had more total viewers than Simon Cowell’s competition. The irony of course is that Clarkson was discovered on Cowell’s “American Idol” and was the very first winner of that show.

“X Factor” was the eleventh–yes 11th– most watched show on Wednesday night. That’s also rough news. From 8 to 10 pm “X Factor” had 4.97 million viewers. It was up against another singing competition on NBC called “The Sing Off.” That show had 6.03 million viewers. Ouch!

Later on NBC, Clarkson’s Christmas special came on at 10pm and scored 5.31 mil viewers. Indeed, if you take away the shows on the almost non existent CW network, “X Factor” had the lowest total audience of any show on Wednesday night.

The people at “American Idol” had better be watching this news. If they haven’t made severe changes for the upcoming season, they’re going to be in the same predicament.
