Fox's 'The X Factor' has a solid night Tuesday


The first X FACTOR live performance show gave FOX a victory last night among Adults 18-49, Adults 18-34, Adults 25-54 and Teens and posted the highest rated Tuesday on any network so far this season in the core adult demo.

THE X FACTOR: 4.3/10, up +10% vs. last Tuesday — its highest Adults 18-49 rating since its debut on 9/21/11 (and will likely go up to a least a 4.4 in the finals to tie/surpass the series premiere)

THE X FACTOR grew +36% from its first half-hour to its last (A18-49 half-hours): 3.6 > 4.1 > 4.4 > 4.4 > 4.9

THE X FACTOR was the No. 1 program of the night in Adults 18-49, Adults 18-34 and Teens.
