One can only hope that the end is nigh for all these shows.

Thise US numbers for the top shows seem low for a country 4x the population of UK. Seems Brits are TV addicts then!

Can't believe my missus won't go out tonight cos it's eviction night on BB, I've told her this BB is a disaster.

I quite agree John

I can't for the life of me understand what is so riveting about watching people living in a house

I'd rather watch paint dry and on that subject once when the X Factor was on one Saturday evening a couple of years ago I turned over to BBC 2 and guess what was on there - yes a documentary about people testing super fast drying paint and recording the speeds at which it dried

Needless to say it was far better viewing than the X Factor Very Happy

While I hope these shows do disappear, I expect the X-Factor audience to build. These sort of shows always start fairly low and go up.

But it would be funny if Cowell has his second flop in 2 months! He might never be on our tellies again (worth noting that ratings for American Idol went up 20% when he left!)

I'd rather have my tongue beaten wafer thin with a steak-tenderiser and then stapled to the floor with a croquet hoop.
