TV Ratings: 'X Factor' holds, 'Charlie's Angels' off to modest start
Fall programming continued to roll out last night, making for a rerun-free Thursday that included four series premieres.
Most notably, however, is the second night of FOX's "The X Factor," which performed almost the same as its Wednesday outing.
ABC's "Charlie's Angels" reboot was greeted with modest ratings, falling short of the network's two-hour "Grey's Anatomy" premiere. And on CBS, "Big Bang Theory" topped scripted efforts with an 8.6 and the night's strongest performance in adults 18-49.
That, combined with a strong start for "Person of Interest" helped CBS score the biggest overall audience of the night, averaging 13.6 million viewers and a 8.4 rating/13 share among households in primetime. FOX (12 million, 7.3/11) followed in second, with ABC (9.8 million, 6.6/10) in third, NBC (5.7 million, 3.6/6) in fourth and The CW (2.3 million, 1.5/2) coming in last.
Thanks to "X Factor," FOX topped among adults 18-49, drawing a 4.1 rating. CBS came in second with a 3.6, followed by ABC (3.4), NBC (2.4) and The CW (1.0).
