X Factor Returns With 9.5 Million Viewers

Reece Bibby X FactorOvernight data has revealed that the opening episode of the eleventh series of 'The X Factor' attracted 9.5 million viewers on itv, making it the most watched programme of the day yesterday with a 43% share of the television audience. The show clashed with the ending of BBC one's 'Doctor Who' which only attracted 5.2 million viewers, a dip from the opening episode last week.

Looking ahead fans of both 'Strictly Come Dancing' on BBC one and 'The X Factor' will be dissapointed to learn that both shows will be clashing in the weeks to come.

Who cares if shows clash? It's 2014 and PVRs exist so do catchup services and +1 channel as well as repeats the next day. The BBC don't chase ad revenue so ratings do not matter to them. But still we get stupid rating articles. Millions more watch these show than the dated rating system reveal.
