Simon Cowell Talks About “The X Factor” USA’s Poor Ratings
Simon Cowell spoke during a press conference about the poor viewer numbers that “The X Factor” USA has had this season. Simon revealed that it’s not a problem with the show, but a problem with a flooded TV market. He stated:
We were expecting there was going to be a problem with the ratings this year, not just with us but with everything, because it’s overkill, there are way too many talent shows on. Once ‘The Voice’ decided to go Monday, Tuesday and we were Wednesday, Thursday — I use the expression it’s like having 14 sugars in your coffee when you want two. I’ve done this for 10 years. The one thing that’s the most important is the legacy you leave behind each year. The legacy we’re going to leave behind is strong, not just with (Tate Stevens, Carly Rose Sonenclar and Fifth Harmony) but also with artists like Emblem3. That’s what we’re judged on.
