Advertisements Not a single thread about The X Factor. Hmmmm - is anyone watching? I've been kindof surprised that the ratings have not been the blockbuster that I would have expected. It was a bit slow to start - felt slightly like it's all been seen before but it's picking up as the talent is being dwindled down. And boy - I am surprised Simon Cowell hasn't sued The Voice - they REALLY ripped this show off in concept.
