E a musa indiana que tomou o lugar de Cee-Lo na música de abertura do Thursday Night Football

Priyanka não deixou Boston ver final de temporada de Rookie Blue
Por uma pequena fração de público, a segunda noite das audições da terceira temporada de The X-Factor não liderou na faixa das 20h30, perdendo para uma reprise de Two And a Half Men. O escasso público característico do final da summer-season contribuiu para a queda de 24% no número de telespectadores que a emissora teve no escopo do horário nobre (6,8 milhões, média de 4,2 e share domiciliar de 7 contra 8,25 milhões, 5,1 e 8 registardos no ano passado). Ainda assim, esses números magros colocaram a FOX na liderança.
Prejudicadas pelo fato das afiliadas de Nova York e Boston, respectivamente, terem levado ao ar a partida do Thursday Night Football (que marcou a estreia da indiana Pryanka Chopra na música-tema no lugar de Cee-Lo Green) entre New England Patriots e New York Jets (vitória também magra, 13 a 10 para o time de Massachusetts), CBS (6,7 milhões de telespectadores, média de 4,7 e share de 7) e ABC (5,1 milhões de telespectadores, média de 3,3 e share de 5) ficaram na segunda e terceira colocações. A competição ao vivo do The Million Second Quiz não ajudou a NBC, que registrou humilhantes 3,4 milhões de telespectadores, média de 2,2 e share de 4, na quarta colocação. Por fora, a The CW registrou apenas 656 mil telespectadores, média de 0,5 e share de 1 ponto.
O peso do The X-Factor foi decisivo para a FOX conquistar também a liderança entre os telespectadores na faixa de 18 a 49 anos, registrando média de 2,2 pontos – 0,3 ponto a mais que a segunda colocada, CBS, que registrou 1,9. Na terceira colocação, a ABC registrou 1,4, contra apenas 1 ponto da NBC. A The CW registrou apenas 0,2 ponto na demográfica.
