Simon Cowell has admitted he regrets saying ratings less than 20 million viewers for the US version of X Factor would constitute a failure. The show's debut came in well under that figure, nabbing 12.5 million viewers, which is certainly respectable for a brand new show, but it's not 20 million.
The Associated Press reports that Cowell has eaten his words and that he's now "back in the real world" and is comfortable letting the show "grow naturally." That's a healthy and realistic way to view it, Simon!
X Factor airs Wednesdays and Thursdays on Fox at 8 PM.
