Ratings: X Factor Rises, Survivor Returns Down But Outdraws Simon & Co.

20 September 2012 8:36 AM, PDT | | See recent news »

Fox’s The X Factor, after having to split the singing show vote with NBC’s The Voice last week, this Wednesday enjoyed an uptick, drawing 9.4 million total viewers and a 3.4 rating, marking gains of 8 percent and a tenth of a point.

While X Factor led the night in the coveted 18-49 demo, it was the season premiere of Survivor: Philippines that drew the biggest crowd with 11.2 million total viewers — a 7 percent bump from last September and the long-running series’ best premiere audience in two years.

6 Awesome TV Actors Who Failed On The Big Screen

5 September 2012 3:16 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

You’ll tune in every week to see their bright, shining faces, but no one would blame you from running from the theaters when they’re newest pictures come out.

Some names might just surprise you, as they did me when I did the necessary research. Love them or hate them (though, I’ll bet you love most of them), here are six fantastic television actors with hardly any good movies (if any).

Note: this list does not include roles in animated films, directing, writing, or producing credits, or cameos (playing themselves or another character). Television movies and mini-series do not count as cinematic endeavors. I ask »
