If you were watching television on Sunday night, there’s a very good chance that you were watching X Factor.

Viewing figures indicate that the live show pulled in it’s biggest ever audience with 14.8 million viewers tuning in to see Whitney Houston nearly pull-off a Janet Jackson and Cheryl Cole sing the first verse of her new single.

That means that at its peak, the show was watched by more people than bothered staying in for the live final last year and half the people watching TV at the time were watching the show.

Although they are battling hard for Saturday night ratings, the BBC seem to be trying to match Simon Cowell’s entertainment behemoth with episodes of The Antiques Roadshow on Sundays.


Was Cheryl dressed like a Street Fighter last weekend?
