The X Factor’s Ratings Get A Boost From Khloe Kardashian’s Debut

November 02, 2012 10:00 AM by Lisa Princ

Khloe Kardashian may have suffered a wardrobe malfunction (complete with a nipple slip) on her debut for The X Factor, but despite that, Khloe remained excited, and fans seem torn on whether or not they like her hosting the show. However, the ratings were up this week – was that all because of Khloe?

Khloe Kardashian was definitely excited about her first week hosting The X Factor on FOX. In fact, she was so excited that she did not let a little nipple slip slow her down, but instead, she went with it. After the shows aired this week, the ratings were revealed and the show actually saw an increase in viewers. In fact, the ratings were up about 30 percent from last week’s 5.7 million, with a 13 percent increase in the 18-49 age group, which is the most sought after group.

But, does the increase have anything to do with adding a Kardashian to the show? Probably not. We’re sure it has more to do with the live shows than anything – what do you think? In any event, how did Khloe do on her first days as the show’s co-host? She got mixed reviews.

The Washington Post said that Khloe: “came across like the novice she is, shouting her lines despite the mic clutched in her hand,” while The New York Daily News praised Khloe in her new role. The Hollywood Reporter thought that both Khloe and Mario Lopez eased into their new job, while The Hollywood Gossip was not so kind, explaining that Kardashian was: “every bit as boring and awkward as we imagined she would be.”

Now, it’s your turn to sound off! What did you think of Khloe Kardashian’s debut on The X Factor? Love her, or hate her? We know you have an opinion, and we want to hear it! Comment below to share your thoughts with us!

    With Khloe, what you see is what you get. I watched because of Khloe.

    Are you kidding me? Really. Ummm the Charlie brown Special on ABC beat the X Factor Wednesday night . . . Kardashian is adding to the decline in viewership and the potty talk about her clothes is making parents and kids stay away . . .

    This show is really less interesting than the first year. Even Simon seems to be a bit boring. The two new judges and Khloe should be sent packing. I watched for five minutes, then switched to another channel.
    While I did watch the first year because of the Simon/Paula connection, from now on I’ll opt for The Voice or whatever else is available.

    Switched to X Factor just to see first part. Mario is a pro. Khloe came across as literally reading everything. Not another hit for the K family. We didn’t watch for the 5 minutes of fame they were seeking for her.
