The X Factor Canceled

FOX just announced that “The X Factor” is being canceled after 3 seasons. Simon Cowell plans to return to “The X Factor” UK version, saying in a statement to MTV News:

I’ve had a fantastic time over the last 12 years, both on ‘The X Factor’ and ‘American Idol.’ 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!). 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. So for now, I’m back to the U.K. and I want to thank Fox for being an incredible partner and I also want to thank everybody who has supported my shows. America, I’ll see you soon!

According to reports FOX does not believe that “The X Factor” can exist in the US without Simon.

Are you bummed that the show has been canceled?
