[PHOTOS/VIDEO] Start ‘The X Factor USA’ 2013: Week 2 Shows Even Lower Ratings than Premiere Episode; Is Simon Cowell Still in a ‘Good Place’? [PHOTOS/VIDEO] Is this the end for The X-Factor USA? The third series of the Foxs reality show has surprised TV enthusiasts and insiders when the network allowed it to air even after the first two seasons failed to attract audiences. But it looks like a third season is not a charm, especially for media mogul, Simon Cowell. The British mogul has been receiving a lot of flaks lately following the shows failure to deliver in numbers. Its premiere episode recorded 6.45 million viewers, almost one million shy of the 7.5 recorded viewers who went to see Britney Spears on the show the first time. Other reports claim Season 2 even had 9 million viewers in 2012. And the latest number is a lot lower than the 12.5 million viewers who tuned in on Season 1 premiere in 2011. While officials and critics hoped that the second week will deliver, ‘The X Factor USA’ again failed to meet expectations on week two as it recorded an even lower number of viewers at 6 million. Things are not looking up for Simon Cowell as the show continues to under-perform at Wednesday nights edition. The new number has increased threats to axe the shows creator and soon-to-be dad.

I would do all that I could try to do bring the two divisions together as often as possible. Marshall also asked how Gilbert envisioned a typical faculty members workday in the future. Across the country, things are changing for faculty members, Gilbert said. Theyre more focused on research as we go forward. There is going to be more demand on faculty to be involved in knowledge creation and research. An audience member asked for Gilberts opinion on the universitys reliance on faculty adjunct professors. I think there is a place for a variety of different faculty types, Gilbert said, but relying too heavily on adjuncts is not a good idea. Other questions focused on ideas for expanding campus activities, enhancing the universitys role in the community and improving campus communication. Gilbert was also asked about his favorite charities (Habitat for Humanity, a foundation to assist public schools, the Starkville arts council); which professional journals he reads (The Chronicle of Higher Education); and his favorite book (1776 by David McCullough). It was great to field all the questions, Gilbert said after the session. He emphasized his goal to expand the universitys partnerships with Mobiles businesses and industry. I think theres a great opportunity for Mobile to do integrated research projects, and advance the university and businesses in the area, he said. Paul Pietri, a professor of management and director of USAs Business Resources Center, exited the session with a big smile. Very impressive candidate, he said. The other finalists are Sheri Noren Everts, provost and vice president for academic affairs at Illinois State University; and Dr. Arthur J.
