Fox is reportedly mulling a revival of The X Factor, which would see Simon Cowell jumping ship from the British version (again) to re-launch the show in the States, Britain's Mirror reports.
After three seasons, Fox canceled The X Factor in February, amid dismal ratings that plunged year after year despite ploys like adding Britney Spears to the judging panel. The show never came close to matching the popularity of Cowell's other export, American Idol.
A former NBC employee has come forward to say that years of "covering up" for Bill Cosby eventually made him quit his job.
Frank Scotti tells the New York Daily News that he was essentially Cosby's yes-man — standing guard outside the comedian's dressing room while he brought young models in, paying off women in exchange for their silence, and even securing a second apartment for Cosby's exploits.
"I did a lot of crazy things for him," Scotti, 90, told the Daily News. "He was covering himself by having my name on it. It was a coverup. I realized it later."
In the past two weeks, the most strategic players on Season 29 of Survivor — Josh Canfieldand Jeremy Collins — have gotten voted out back-to-back. And, while it's true there's no "correct" way to play Survivor, there are few things more frustrating for longtime fans than watching erratic moves trump calculated ones.
But that's exactly what has played out on Survivor: San Juan del Sur — Blood vs. Water in recent episodes, with Jon Misch and his girlfriend, Jaclyn Schultz, improbably steering the ship. The only problem is, they seem to be sailing without a compass.
"Jon's just crazy. He's not making great decisions in this game. It's so random," Collins tells TVGuide.com.
