Simon Cowell hast lost round one America.
The ex American Idol judge debuted his highly anticipated new show the “X-Factor” last night, to lower ratings than he would have liked.
Simon’s new show averaged an 8.7 rating, while the tenth season premiere of “Idol” pulled in a 16.4 — and in last night’s head-to-head; “Modern Family” and “Criminal Minds” beat him out.
Simon says that he desperately wanted to beat out Idol, and it looks like it may be a fight from here on out.
I watched the show, and I LOVED it. It was refreshing to see some younger talent. Plus, I am in LOVE with Simon Cowell….Sue me.
