Fox Cancels “The X Factor”

x-Factor LogoFox has announced the cancellation of The X Factor singing competition show created by Simon Cowell. Since its debut in the Fall of 2011, The X Factor was not the hit many expected and has experience a slow decline in the ratings.  A rotation of different judges in the three seasons (Simon Cowell, Demi Lovato, Kelly Rowland and Paulina Rubio most recently) did not help the ratings.  

The X Factor franchise originated in the United Kingdom, where it was devised as a replacement for Pop Idol. It is now held in various countries. The contestants are aspiring pop singers drawn from public competitive auditions. The programs are produced by executive producer Simon Cowell and his company SYCOtv. The "X Factor" of the title refers to the undefinable "something" that makes for star quality.

The similarities between The X Factor and Idol prompted Idol creator Simon Fuller, along with 19 Entertainment, to file a lawsuit against Cowell, SYCOtv, and FremantleMedia in 2004. An out-of-court settlement was reached in 2005 allowing Fuller to gain a 10% share in The X Factor format, and preventing an American version until 2010. Fuller later filed another lawsuit in 2011, claiming that he had also been promised that he would be credited as an executive producer of The X Factor USA, but that SYCO, FremantleMedia, and Fox Broadcasting Company had failed to fulfill that promise; that lawsuit is pending.

Cowell will continue as a judge on “The X Factor UK” and will focus on the other international formats.
