Simon Cowell Tried To Save X Factor From Cancellation, But His Plan Could've Made Him Look Like A Traitor!

Simon Cowell wouldn't let the U.S. version of X Factor go that easily!

Before FOX gave the singing competition the axe, the TV mogul very quietly tried to convince NBC to give the show a new home.

Sadly, the network already houses The Voice and X Factor's tanking ratings weren't exactly tempting.

While the first season cashed in an estimated $500 million thanks to super devoted fandom, by the third season the franchise lost its huge Pepsi sponsorship AND only earned a measly $139 million.

Bleh!

Now, the international success and TV mastermind will be packing his bags and heading back over the pond to rejoin the X Factor UK judging panel after padding his bank account with hundreds of millions from the now failed show.

So really, with the loss of Simon and a little less music on the American small screen, it sounds like U.S. viewers are really the only ones who are losing here!

What a drag!!! How we'll miss those charming insults! HA!

UPDATE: A rep from X Factor tells us any rumors of Simon Cowell trying to migrate the show to NBC are "completely categorically untrue.”
