The X Factor Canceled by Fox

Fox is ending “The X Factor” after three seasons. The  decision comes after a dismal third season for X Factor, which was down big-time from last season. Simon Cowell will return to the U.K. version of “X Factor” later this year.  Cowell stated:

“I’ve had a fantastic time over the last 12 years, both on ‘The X Factor’ and ‘American Idol,’ ” Cowell said in a statement. “And apart from being lucky enough to find some amazing talent on the shows, I have always had an incredible welcome from the American public — most of the time!”

Kevin Reilly, Chairman of Fox, praised Cowell, stating:

“To all of us at Fox, Simon is more than one of the most prolific TV personalities of our time – he’s part of our family. Unfortunately, there is no X Factor USA without Simon Cowell but we understand and support his decision to focus on the international formats and on the next phase of his personal life. We wish him the very best, and it’s our sincere hope that we work together again soon.”
