Simon Cowell

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.

But it wasn't until a video of (male) comedian Hannibal Buress calling Cosby a rapist during an October stand-up set went viral that people began to care. Since then, even more women have come forward with horrific allegations about Cosby dating back decades.
