'The Voice' Beats 'X Factor USA' In Ratings Battle

Published: Thursday 13th Sep 2012 by TGJ

It’s the news Simon Cowell had been dreading.

Indeed, despite receiving universally positive reviews for the first episode of its second season,  hit show ‘X Factor USA’ lost  out to rival ‘The Voice‘ in last night’s rating war, spurred by the latter’s  spontaneous decision to air an episode on the former’s launch night.

With an audience of 10.7 million, the series beat out Cowell’s well loved series by a cool 3.2 million viewers last night, despite an intense promo campaign for the show which saw the mogul take to the ‘Ellen’ show with fellow judge/ Pop icon  Britney Spears.

On Mark Burnett‘s ‘Voice’, the ‘SYCO‘ mastermind claimed:

“These guys have really got it in for us. It’s nothing short of dirty tricks. The reason they’ve done this is they don’t want people to see X Factor because they’ve heard how good the series is.

They don’t want their audience to see Britney Spears. They don’t want their audience to see Demi Lovato”.

    A word of advice to Britney, you are not Christina!!! Christina is hands down the most talented, s*** and gracious woman in Hollywood, or indeed the world. She is one of the best the industry has to offer…the looks, talent and heart of gold. Britney Spears effin’ eat your heart out, Christina Aguilera is showing you how it’s done.
