The FOX show's viewership improved in its second week.
Taryn Manning may have taken a different path than her Crossroads co-star Britney Spears, but she still has nothing but kind words for the new X Factor judge.

“I’m really proud of her,” Manning told Celebuzz at The People StyleWatch event in West Hollywood. “I like her suggestions and her critiques [on the show].”

What else did Manning say?

“She really has a lot to say and it’s cool to see her in another light … I’m like, ‘Ooh, Britney! Get ‘em!”

But don’t expect Manning to be making a cameo on her gal pal’s show any time soon. Between American Idol and The Voice, Manning says she “just can’t keep up with them.”

“I feel so far behind,” she confessed. “[They’re] all amazing!”
