Wednesday: FOX Wins the Night, But X Factor Finale Loses Vs Season 1

The X Factor ratings stayed even with last week, but according to Marc Berman, the numbers declined 19% over the Season 1 final.  X Factor got their asses kicked by The Voice, which scored a 4.9 in the demo and over 14 million viewers. Ouch.
