Now at a score of 8-5, the American team is in a less daunting position of needing four consecutive wins to keep the Americas Cup. On Wednesday, that number was eight. The teams ability to claw its way back from such a trailing position has encouraged fans to turn out for a much more exciting race between the two countries. Emirates Team New Zealand still needs just one win to take the cup back to New Zealand. On Friday, the black AC 72 of Oracle Team USA screamed past the finish line in race 13, ahead of the Kiwis by 1 minute, 24 secondskeeping the team alive in the race for the 34th Americas Cup. 34th Americas Cup Day 12 (Photo: ACEA/Photo Balazs Gardi) In todays Race 14, Oracle Team USA won by 23 seconds over Emirates Team New Zealand.

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. Doess the increasing decline of ‘The X-Factor USA’ mean Season 3 will be the shows last on air and the curtain will no longer go up for the reality competition after it goes down this year?
