Fox has X'd out "The X Factor. " Once hyped as the next "American Idol," Fox has canceled the "The X Factor" after three seasons of shuffling judges and low ratings for the musical talent show. Simon Cowell, who left "American Idol" for "The X Factor," will now focus his efforts on the U.K. version of the show. “Last year, for a number of reasons, I had to make a decision to return to the U.K. version of 'The X Factor' in 2014," Cowell said in a statement. That would seem to contradict what Cowell said two months ago, when he told reporters that "The X Factor" would return for a fourth season.

Pop star Cheryl Cole lasted only a few days as a judge on Fox's new talent-spotting program "The X Factor. " But she was dumped from the job so unceremoniously that, in the eyes of many Brits, she might as well have been on "The Apprentice," with snarky "X Factor" impresario Simon Cowell bellowing, "You're fired!" at her before an audience of millions. Cole's public humiliation set Britain's tabloids and society pages abuzz, mostly with sympathy toward her and contempt for Cowell.
