Thursday Ratings: Glee and X Factor Both Drop Against Season Premieres

OH BOY. The Big Bang Theory/Two and One Half Men and Grey’s/Person of Interest KICKED X Factor and Glee’s ASSES respectively last night.  They were competing with season premieres, but still. Glee’s ratings were dismal, any way you look at it. Once the season premiere novelty has worn off, hopefully the numbers will even out.
