    TV3 won’t be complaining about those numbers. Also a big jump for Xtra Factor that didn’t even feature in top 5 of FOUR for Sunday’s first episode.

    • Eugene

      now they know they just have to fire a judge each week!

  • Mark Wasley

    That’s huge for The X Factor! I watched Xtra Factor for the first time last night and it was good.

  • Patrick

    Lol wow how the hell did 3news get their ratings up by so much!?
