Way to come through in a clutch, Simon!
X Factor's ratings were NOT doing so hot for a while there, but then Simon Cowell dropped a major bomb on the show last week and the ratings went up enough for Fox to order a second season!
Here's what Simon had to say about it:
"I am absolutely thrilled with the news. I have loved making the show and I want to thank FOX, our sponsors, and most importantly, the fans for supporting THE X FACTOR."
More from Fox's President of Alternative Entertainment Mike Darnell:
"THE X FACTOR is a monumental success. It’s won every night it’s been on the air, the talent is phenomenal, the live shows are spectacular and picking it up is a complete no-brainer. Simon and his team have done an incredible job with the show, and I’m absolutely thrilled to bring back THE X FACTOR for another fantastic season."
Congratulations to Simon and the entire X Factor team! We'll look forward to seeing what you do with the show next year!
What do U think? Will U continue watching X Factor for a second season???
