Oy. Simon spent millions for Britney and Demi (whom I adore) only to be colossally let down. Not only were the ratings for the debut of the 2nd season of The X Factor low, they were down the second night when it competed with The Voice. See what happens when you talk smack about the competition? There is always a chance said competition will swoop in and mess your shit UP and that is what went down here. It’ll be interesting to see how the whole season plays out. With what they paid Brit, LA and Demi, it might not even be worth a 3rd season.
