X-Factor Pushes New Girl Back to November


Chaos reigns! Less than a month into the show’s run, Fox is preempting New Girl for more X-Factor time, expanding Simon Cowell’s creation from a sizable 90 minutes to a bloated two hours. New Girl will be back in November, which seems like just enough time for the program to completely lose its audience and any momentum it had built up. In fact, now that the Nielsen ratings factor in delayed viewing on DVR, the show’s premiere pulled into a 6.7 for the 18-to-49 age range, which is apparently very good, though not as good as the audience who want watch Simon crush the hopes and dreams of America’s least self-aware performers.
