It looks like Simon Cowell could have another TV hit on his hands.
Despite going head-to-head with a historical night of baseball action, The X Factor was a success on Wednesday - and even helped Fox break ratings records, RadarOnline.com has learned.
With the reality talent singing competition, which is based on a U.K. show of the same name, Fox had the highest ratings in the Adults 18-49 market again, making it the first time in it's history that the network has won the first two Wednesdays of the season. Fox also won the night among Adults 25-54 and Teens.
For it's second week on the air, The X Factor was watched by 11.1 million viewers and posted a 3.9 rating among adults 18-49 and is projected to go up to a 4.1 in the finals.
In his latest television venture, Simon is joined on the judge's table with side-kicks record mogul L.A. Reid, Paula Abdul and former Pussycat Doll Nicole Scherzinger to decide who deserves to win a $5 million recording contract with Epic Records.
