Simon Cowell Plans to Make Changes for the Second Season of The X Factor USA

Everyone needs to cut The X Factor a break. Yes, we are aware it’s not as successful as American Idol. In fact it only draws in less than 13 million viewers a week, while American Idol attracts over 25 million per show. TV experts always fail to acknowledge that the first season is always experimental. The producers need to see what works and what changes would help attract more viewers.

Simon Cowell realizes this, and he’s not given up on his dream of The X Factor taking over the world. This season there’s been a number of issues that need addressing, starting with the judges.  TV Guide recently asked Simon Cowell if he made plans to shake up the judges table- more specifically will Nicole Scherzinger be back next season? “Haven’t got a clue,” he said. “We change these shows all the time. You listen to the network, you listen to the sponsors.” Fans of the show can only hope something happens with the judges table. There’s nothing more unpleasant than UNEEDED (not unscripted) drama.  Perhaps getting someone on the panel that wants to judge talent, not grab the spotlight would be best.

Another change Simon Cowell wants to make it helping the judges learn how to make an educated, good decision. Though most would say that he is upset with Rachel Crow and Drew’s elimination, he’s actually disappointed Paula Abdul kept the Stereo Hoggz and let inTENsity go home. “Going into the second year, hopefully we’ll get better groups,” he added.

Despite the changes needed to be the success he wants, Simon Cowell is not afraid to admit that it took many years to get the original X Factor exactly how he imagined. The X Factor will return for a second season next fall.

  1. I think we’re universally agreed that Nicole Scherzinger should probably stay at home next year?

    Simon Cowell is the worst judge leaving out Melanie and Jazzlyn Little.Melanie was brought back,but it was a huge lack of judgement,and Simon obviously used it as a publicity stunt which was cruel.The two black girls Simone and Tiah looked great but were not ready.The UK x factor was also ruined by several of the best ones being left out.Luigiano Paals and Jade Richards would surely have been in the latter stages as they clearly had talent.

    YES! in fact if she wants to stay home for the finale this week, that’d be okay, too.

    ***I MOST DEFINETLY THINK THAT NICOLE SCHERZINGER SHOULD STILL BE ON THE SHOE WITHOUT HER THE SHOW WOULD BE BORING…***
    SHE JUST MAKES THE SHOW WAYYY MORE INTERESTING
    AND ABOUT THE RACHIEL CROW THINGY… ITHINK IF ANYONE ELSE WAS IN THE AXACT SAME SPOT SHE WAS IN THEY WOULD OF DID THE SAME…
    AND SHES REALLY FAMOUSE…
    AND FAMOUSE PEOPLE = MORE VIEWERS

    He’d better get a clue as to the judging panel because I can’t even bear to listen to Nicole Scherzinger commenting because she is sounds so childish. Most importantly he should listen to the fans. There’s too much overproduction, and the audience are too noisy. I’ve been an ardent follower of X Factor UK, and had hoped that first US version would be great. Sadly I must say it was horrible all the way from judges houses.

    DO NOT fire nicole, she’s brilliant, love her banter with the other judges and the way she stands up to simon, she’s my FAVORITE judge
