    woah.. are people boycotting x-factor or something?

    • jack

      Don’t think so. Would think so if tv3 plus ratings for x factor weren’t so high then sure but it’s pretty high so I think people must’ve forgot to watch it or just got home late

      • benpaul12

        If that was true – people getting home late – surely that would have an effect on the OFH numbers too….

    • Jasmine

      Total audience figures are somewhat redundant.. X Factor once again dominated the 18-49, 25-54 and household demographics, dropping ever so slightly from last Tuesdays ep.

  • James

    Interesting the Plus 1 numbers for the X Factor. Massive numbers really, compared to last weeks 40,000.
