Wednesday Ratings: X Factor Post Holiday Rise

The X Factor rose vs last week’s holiday numbers, but so did everything else. The struggling show spent most of the night in 4th place. Even ABC’s soon to be cancelled comedy “Super Fun Night” beat it in the half hour. It tied with another ABC stinker, “Back in the Game.”

Survivor is having a very good season, both critically and ratings wise. Nashville stayed steady with its last outing, 2 weeks ago. The Rockefeller Christmas special rose vs last year.
