When the show debuted, everyone thought Simon Cowell's British inspired show would jump ahead of the pack.  It has done well, but this last week, hit a record low.

A 9% drop in the ratings befell X Factor.   CBS, won it's first Thursday of the season.  ABC had some decent marks for the Regis Philbin Special show, taking the slot of the now cancelled Charlie's Angels.  NBC was up and down ratingswise.
