US 'X-Factor' Cancelled, Simon Cowell Returning to UK Edition
Fox has cancelled the American version of the "X Factor" after three seasons, Reuters is reporting. The programme was never able to replicate the success of "American Idol," and only mustered 6.2 million viewers for its season three finale, about half of its first season finale audience.

Show creator Simon Cowell is set to return to the UK version of the programme, which has also suffered declining ratings in recent years. It is hoped that Cowell's appearance might bolster the UK show’s success. The pop mogul has released the following statement:

"I've had a fantastic time over the last 12 years, both on 'The X Factor' and 'American Idol,'' Cowell said in a statement. "And apart from being lucky enough to find some amazing talent on the shows, I have always had an incredible welcome from the American public (most of the time!)"
