Here’s what I know from my very limited knowledge and actual viewing history of Fox’s hit show, The X Factor:
It is a glorified episode of MTV’s Cribs, in that they spend more time gawking at the celebrity judges’ homes than they do making children cry.
It employs Britney Spears and Demi Lovato, who have both long since taken dips in the batsh*t crazy pool.
It allows Simon Cowell to become even wealthier than he already is by manipulating the celebrity worship of America’s zombie-like youth.
That’s it, the extent of my knowledge of the show in a nutshell. Oh, and now I also know that the show is on hiatus thanks to the Major League Baseball postseason, and holy hell does that have the show’s fans in a poorly-spelled uproar. Last night was the best example of this, as the rain delay during Game 3 of the NLCS in St. Louis lasted longer than the actual game, and someone in Fox’s programming department decided to air the Top 16 reveal for The X Factor.
And then, even before the rain stopped, things went delightfully haywire.
