Simon Cowell and FOX expected the US version of The X Factor to be a big hit in the ratings but it never lived up to expectations. Cowell announced that he was leaving the show last February and it was then cancelled after three seasons.
Now, the Mirror reports that Cowell is planning to depart the UK version of the show once again so that he can return to the States to relaunch the American version. According to the article, execs at Cowell’s Syco company have pitched the revival to FOX and it’s been well received.
Back on November 7th, in response to a fan’s tweet about missing the US version of The X Factor, Cowell tweeted, “So Do I”.
What do you think? Would you like to see The X Factor return to FOX? Do you think it could get better ratings this time?
