I wasn't all that impressed with the first season of "The X-Factor"; Simon Cowell stopped giving his harsh but accurate critiques, and the other judges were pretty lame -- except for L.A. Reid, who was the closest thing to the "American Idol"-version of Simon.
Then, the two lamest judges, Nicole Scherzinger and Paula Abdul, were fired in the offseason, and now it's official: Britney Spears is replacing them. I'm not sure this is an improvement, and I think I may be done with "The X-Factor."
Note, however, that if Spears were to replace Christina Aguilera on "The Voice," that would be a definite improvement! Sheesh!
You know, if NBC really wanted ratings, maybe it should match up Christina Aguilera against current "Celebrity Apprentice" contestant Aubrey O'Day to see who has the colossally biggest me-me-me-me ego.
