It's November sweeps -- a critical period for networks -- and 'X Factor' is doing nothing to help its parent Fox achieve its goals. The show, in its third season, is dealing with abysmal ratings that have been declining ever since it premiered in the U.S. It appears to be running out of steam, begging the question: Is the show on the verge of being canceled?
Lady Gaga performed two songs on the U.K. version of 'X Factor' last night (Oct. 27). Ma Monster did a lot in the space of seven minutes, including hugging it out with Sharon Osbourne, whom she was feuding with earlier this year.
It's "official," meaning FOX has finally decided to address what everyone knew months ago: Khloe Kardashian will not be returning to host season three of the 'X Factor.'
Fellow host Mario Lopez, on the other hand, is allowed to come back because dude, have you seen him without a shirt?
It has been confirmed that former 'X Factor' judge Demi Lovato will be returning to the show for its third season, joined by creator Simon Cowell -- but not by her former panelists Britney Spears and L.A. Reid.
The fates of co-host Khloe Kardashian and her nipples are currently unknown. (Oh let's be real here. She won't be back.)
It's pretty much Bruno Mars' week, with his sophomore set 'Unorthodox Jukebox' landing at retail and the lead single 'Locked Out of Heaven' rocketing to the No. 1 slot on the radio charts. The singer capped off a stellar promotional week with a performance of the single on last night's (Dec. 13) elimination episode of 'X Factor.'
Ding ding. ‘The Voice‘ vs. ‘X Factor‘ battle has officially begun, a week before the season premieres and the ratings books. ‘The Voice’ is strategically attempting to win Round 1 by adding an extra episode of Season 3 during the premiere week on Wednesday, Sept. 12, which is the same day that Season 2 of ‘X Factor’ premieres. That move has got Simon Cowell fighting mad.
