Wednesday Ratings: X Factor Down From Last Week, The Voice Wins The Week

The X Factor was number 1 last night, at least in ratings in the 8 pm hour (Survivor had more viewers. In the 9:30 half hour, Modern Family totally kicked X Factor’s butt)

However, The Voice is decisively winning the ratings war so far.  The Voice has consistently earned ratings over 4.0 and has beat X Factor in the number of viewers as well. However BOTH shows were down this week compared to last.

FOX was the number 1 network with adults 18-49, but CBS won with total viewers.

On FOX, The X Factor garnered a 3.3 adults 18-49 rating,  down three tenths from last week’s 3.6.

On CBS, Survivor: Philippines earned a 3.0, down two tenths from last week’s premiere  3.2 adults 18-49 rating. The season premiere of Criminal Minds earned a 3.1, down a full ratings point from last year’s 4.1 premiere rating. The season premiere of CSI earned a 2.5 adults 18-49 rating

Ratings Breakdown: Via Marc Berman

CBS inched past Fox by one-tenth of a rating point in the overnights on this first Wednesday of the new TV season. But the dominant network among adults 18-49 will likely be a race between ABC and Fox.

Survivor: Philippines on CBS is alive and well, with a dominant 6.9 rating/11 share in the overnights at 8 p.m., which was right on par with the South Pacific edition one year earlier (which trailed competing The X Factor on Fox).

The X Factor on Fox, meanwhile, was on the map with a 7.0/11 in the overnights from 8-10 p.m., peaking at 9:30 p.m. with a 7.4/12. But compared to the year-ago evening (8.0/13 on 9/28/11), this was down by 12 percent.
