Thursday Ratings: X Factor Falls Ahead of Finale

At this point, X Factor ratings should be rising in anticipation of next week’s finale, but instead the show dips 7% from last week.  Ouch. Survivor is also down a bit. And the Barbara Walters special. featuring One Direction, was down from last year’s edition.

ETA: Last night’s 12-12-12 concert probably had an impact on network ratings, but we won’t know for sure until those ratings come out later.
