Simon Cowell
Simon Cowell could be set to leave 'The X Factor'.
The 54-year-old media mogul is a judge on the singing contest - which is his brainchild - however he could be planning to leave the show since it is pulling in fewer viewers than in previous years - with the live show on Tuesday night (29.10.13) attracting only 4.8 million viewers.
The drop in numbers could force bosses to lower the budget on the series, meaning Simon will walk away and back onto the judging panel of the UK version of the talent show.

'The X-Factor' Meet the Final 40
In a season that's trying its best not to make 'The X Factor' look like 'The X Factor', last night's episode just completely dismantled the whole show into something completely unrecognizable.

Firstly, there's not going to be any boot camp this year. No battles, no judges' homes. Nothing. It's just a big skip straight to performing back in the arenas. Something called the Four Chair Challenge - a blatant rip-off of 'The Voice' (it appears) as it seems this show is sharply focused on getting down to the live show roster as quickly as it can.

Or drag it out with its Four Chair Challenge for...

Now we may finally get another couple Demis and Simons up there for a co...
