Though Simon Cowell indicated that The X Factor would be renewed for the 2014-15 season, FOX Chairman Kevin Reilly says a decision hasn’t been made yet.
At today’s TCA session, Reilly also said, “The show underperformed this year. Simon himself would admit that. If the show were to come back, it would not be in the current format that we have.”
According to TV Line, Reilly confirmed that Cowell’s role on-screen could be eliminated or diminshed.
A decision is expected to be made in the next month or so.
What do you think? Should FOX stick with The X Factor as-is, retool it, or cancel the show?
