U.S. version of X-Factor officially canceled

Fans of the reality television show X-Factor will not be happy to learn that the show has been officially canceled in the United States according to online reports on Feb. 8, 2014.

X-Factor's executive producer, Simon Cowell, said the cancellation was due to poor ratings. With two other similar reality television shows, The Voice and American Idol, it seems that X-Factor has been put on the back burner.

The U.S. version of X-Factor has also seen judges come and go, which could possibly be part of the problem with ratings. Cowell's return to the UK version of the show as a judge left the U.S. version with a whole new panel of judges.

Cowell said he is not ready to throw in the towel on the U.S. version of X-Factor yet. Instead, Cowell is already working on changes to the U.S. version with hopes of resurrecting the show. One of the changes will be a new producer and a whole new format.

Cowell moved over to the UK version as a judge earlier this year, leaving the U.S. version with a panel of judges which did not have any of the original judges from the onset of the show.

I'm betting that X-Factor will be back on the air in the U.S. soon, but will it be a hit with the former fans and bring in enough new fans to be the once popular show it used to be? Or will the new version be a total flop?
