There must be good reasons why this is happening so how about these,
1) X factor should really have taken a break. A break to consider whether it really should do the ultra modern thing for British tv this is due to a fall from last years ratings with the way the reality tv talent show has been produced and is delivered
2) Not considering who the Saturday night viewers are has led to a fall in the ratings Teenagers, children, grandmas and grandads.
3) Not considering what Saturday night viewers want to watch in terms of a talent show could well be another. The grandma generation will remember all to well when talent shows were good and entertaining.
4)The staging the lights the dancers the sound machine etc do not make up for a lack of talent from the entrants or the average talent of others.
5)WAtching a screaming audience for viewers at home is a big turn off.
6)The BBC have a better programme that is entertaining to watch.
Can you think of any other reasons why the veiwers are switching channels this year?
