FOX ranked #2 for the night among Adults 18-49, Adults 18-34 and teens.

THE X FACTOR:  3.7/10 – holding up well given the direct music/performance show competition last night (down -8% in the core demo and only down -3% among Adults 18-34).

Last night’s THE X FACTOR built throughout the night and was up +18% in its last half-hour vs. its first among Adults 18-49 (half-hours: 3.4 > 3.7 > 3.9 > 4.0)  

THE X FACTOR was the second highest rated program of the night among Adults 18-49, Adults 18-34 and Teens behind ABC’s CMA Awards.

Criminal Minds (3.4/8, down -8%) and CSI (2.5/7, down -7%) finished the night with season lows at 9pm and 10pm.

At 8p, NBC’s Up All Night (1.8/5) remained flat and matched last week’s season low. Following a repeat Up All Night (1.2/3) at 830p, Harry’s Law posted a 1.3/3 at 9pm, up +18% from last week.
