Since baseball had the graciousness to be efficient, Simon Cowell will take advantage of getting his regularly scheduled slots back, and run XFactor on Wed/Thurs instead of the originally announced Thurs/Sun schedule.
From the press release.
Following the conclusion of the 2012 World Series, THE X FACTOR’s Top 16 acts will perform live for the first time on a special two-hour-and-seven-minute show Wednesday, Oct. 31 (8:00-10:07 PM live/ PT tape-delayed) on FOX. Hosts Khloé Kardashian Odom and Mario Lopez will take THE X FACTOR stage alongside judges Simon Cowell, Demi Lovato, Britney Spears and L.A. Reid. Then, on Thursday, Nov. 1 (8:00-10:00 PM ET live/PT tape-delayed), the Top Finalists will be revealed, and return the following week to face America’s vote.
It’s about time baseball did Simon a solid. Maybe now we can call it even.
