Fox renews The X Factor, obviously

Having fulfilled America’s need to see a blunt Englishman, his slaphappy female sidekicks, and a black guy with glasses pass judgment on amateur performers during the autumn months, The X Factor has received a second season pick-up from Fox. “I am absolutely thrilled with the news,” Simon Cowell said in a statement, no doubt while loosening a fourth button to really get in there and knead his pectorals like he was prepping a fresh batch of Dutch babies. Anyway, its renewal isn’t really a surprise, as the show has been a ratings winner—though still not as big as American Idol, as Cowell initially predicted. But that could all change next season, when L.A. Reid starts wearing flashy cardigans.
