TV Ratings Report: The X Factor Plummets

by at . Comments

X did most decidedly not mark the spot on Fox last night, as the Season 3 premiere of Simon Cowell's creation plummeted in the ratings.

According to preliminary numbers, The X Factor garnered a total of 6.2 million viewers last night and recorded a 2.1 rating among 18-49-year olds. Those figures represent a 35 and 38 percent drop, respectively, from last year's opener and were half of what the show debuted to in September 2011.
