Thanksgiving 2013 Ratings: How Low Can X Factor and Glee Go?

Whoa. X Factor inches ever closer to a 1 rating. Ditto Glee which DID dip below 1. It tied with the Lady Gaga Thanksgiving special. Football ruled the night. Hopefully, the numbers are a holiday anomoly.

Last Thanksgiving, for a comparison, X Factor rated a 2.5 AND WAS UP vs. the previous week’s show, and Glee notched a 1.9. However, a football lead-in probably helped their numbers.
