Is The X Factor going to be cancelled? Though the FOX reality competition has been having a pretty terrible season ratings-wise, Simon Cowell says that “The show will be back next season.”
The X Factor currently airs twice a week on FOX and is having its lowest-rated season-to-date. The Wednesday editions are currently down by 37% in the 18-49 demographic and the Thursday installments are down by 42%. The most recent episode fell to a 1.2 in the demo with less than five million total viewers.
Cowell said that he might have a different role on the show next season, suggesting that he may not return as a judge.
If FOX is going to renew the show, it seems likely that it may only air once a week next season.
