The X Factor
may not be raking in the numbers seen by NBC's The Voice
, but it's still bringing bringing in a decent amount of viewers from all the right places (audiences 18-49, of course). The series has been hovering at 10.6 million viewers in recent weeks and Fox is no dummy. The network just picked up its fall and winter American Idol
counterpart for a third season.
Before the start of season 2 in September, the show saw some changes, most notably the addition of judges Demi Lovato
and Britney Spears
in the seats that once belonged to Paula Abdul
and Nicole Scherzinger
. Lovato's youthful, cheerful commentary and Spears' sassy, no-nonsense retorts (and incredible looks that only a mother/aging pop star could pull off) have brought a unique element to a series that is swimming on competition. And apparently, it's only going to get crazier.
