Why do people still watch X Factor?

I had a few years' hiatus from this programme, which I used to absolutely love.

Really tried to get into it again this year but it is so unbelievably boring, bloated, predictable and...I just don't get it.

Why haven't all the people who are still watching this programme turned to each other and said 'this is sh*t, isn't it? Maybe we should find something new to watch'.

I have decided enough is enough and I won't be watching any more episodes. Apparently it drags on right up to Xmas, which is just painful. So far I've seen nothing to hold my attention, and have only lasted this long because I was determined that there must be some reason why people stick with it. It's not as if I don't like the format
