Thursday Ratings: X Factor Stays Steady, Glee Premiere Numbers Drop

The Robin Williams comedy, The Crazy Ones had a solid premiere, after a massive Big Bang Theory. American Idol alum, Kelly Clarkson guest starred on the Robin Williams helmed show. X Factor ratings stayed steady with last week, which is impressive, considering the competition. Glee had a disappointing return, The Beatles notwithstanding.  Ratings should pick up considerable when FOX airs the Cory Monteith tribute in two weeks.
