    Who says we will get more scripted shows?

    I'm a little surprised by this because Fox didn't get Thursday Football, I figured they would use it for filler for one more year before ditching it.

    I think all it proves is Simon needs Idol a lot more than Idol needs Simon, something most people figured out a long time ago.

    I wonder if that means we'll see Simon return to American Idol? I don't watch the show, so it wouldn't mean much to me either way, but it would seem likely he'd go back to it.

    Any way you slice it, this stupid exploitative crap show's off of the air; it's on my personal shit list for the Ceri Rees incident, in which a senior citizen was made to look like a fool while auditioning:

    The Humiliation of Ceri Rees By The Cowardly And Exploitative X-Factor TV Show

    Neil DeGrasse Tyson's Cosmos can't come soon enough; I hope that it takes over the time slot of this shitty show.

    Cosmos is going to be on Sunday nights in the USA, starting in March, when The X Factor USA would have been on next fall on Wednesday and Thursday.

    54 is a senior citizen? I turned 55 last month!:eek: Also that was on the UK version, not the US one,which is the one that was canceled. Though I think the focus these shows have on the bad performers ridiculous and a waste of time.

    Hey, I said that I hope it takes over the time slot, not that it would or will do so.

    Well, close enough-hell, I feel like a senior citizen, and I'm in my mid-40's.

    And the reason I placed it is to show how crappy it is, and how it fosters these kind of incidents. That's why I'm glad it's being canceled even though the incident never happened here.

    ^Well, that too, but this incident was worse than that by the greatest of magnitudes; Hung at least knew what he was getting into, Mrs. Rees really didn't, and has been completely exploited by the producers of the UK version of this show.

    I was going to say the same thing (well, movie, but still the same point).
