It’s no secret that Fox’s “The X Factor” wasn’t the success former “American Idol” judge Simon Cowell had hoped for. With it’s first season completed, and also with mediocre ratings, it seems there’s a big shake-up going on. And, shockingly it’s being reported Paula Abdul is out.
Not only are host Steve Jones and judge Nicole Scherzinger exiting from the Fox show, but now a Simon Cowell insider just told me that his longtime friend and American Idol colleague Paula Abdul won’t be returning as an X Factor judge next season. I understand from sources that none of the three left on their own accord and that it was cleaning house day at the so-so rated reality series. It’ll be interesting to see if there’s any backlash against Simon because of Paula’s popularity.
Personally, I couldn’t get into this new reality program. With so many talent competition shows on the air, I didn’t see the point. And based on the ratings I wasn’t alone.
