X Factor I think you might be going the same way as Big Brother.
In its heyday everyone was crazy for the most boring show on TV - Big Brother. The subject of who was being voted out/in, the performance in tasks and all the gossip were probably the most discussed topics in offices for years. And so it was with the X Factor. But this year there's a serious lack of interest from what I can gather.
Big Brother stumbled on for a few more years with the Celebrity version: I predict a Celeb X Factor in the next couple of years as Cowell kicks a few more million for himself out of the franchise.
Once evil music mogul genius Simon Cowell departed, depriving us of his big ego and love him/hate him personality that everyone was desperate to impress, it spelled doom for the show.
And leaving clearly spells it out that he himself is just so over the UK X Factor. The ratings have dived and Simon has apparently issued a directive that they must improve by 10% every week from now on. Eh, how's that going to happen Simon? Perhaps if there were some decent judges and contests perhaps?
This year's judges are just a shadow of the foursome we were used to. Gary may be a handsome bastard and every woman in the audience may be lusting after him - but he's no Simon in the judging stakes. Kelly Rowland is a goddess - but er kind of an annoying one. All the pretending to cry and having dreams about contestants just ain't working for me. Tulisa seems like a really nice girl - but she's not Cheryl. And Loueee - the only original judge - well he's just Loueee.
And I haven't even started to discuss the contestants. I'll leave that to you lot!
