RATINGS FOR PAGEANT NOT OUT OF THIS UNIVERSE — BUT IMPROVED

With Miss USA a stronger contender in Donald Trump’s Miss Universe Pageant — she eventually won — ratings for the annual event rose more than 15 percent from a year ago. The two-hour telecast on NBC drew 6.12 million viewers versus 5.3 million a year ago. But it was a contest of a different sort that dominated the ratings Wednesday night as the two-hour final performance episode of The X Factor averaged 8.3 million total viewers and a 2.7 rating and an 8 share among adults 18-49. Those figures paled compared with those of NBC’s The Voice on Tuesday night, which drew 14.13 million viewers and a 4.9/13 among the younger age group.
