Simon Cowell's nightmare came true. The Voice crushed X Factor. 10.5M to 8.5M viewers. The really sad part for Simon other than the fact his show is probably not long for this world at least at this price point is that even with all the buzz and all the hype, the show's ratings were down 32% compared to last year and the ratings from last year were nothing to really write home about considering what was expected. To lose like that in your first episode shows what is going to likely happen as the season wears on and your numbers shrink. I guess the tall one from the Kardashian family is a yes for sure to try and get whatever ratings they can. Might as well make it a full on selling your soul to the devil.
