The X Factor: Renewed for Season 2!

by at . Comments

It hasn't garnered the American Idol-like ratings Simon Cowell had hoped for, but The X Factor has shown steady improvement each week, while featuring such promising acts as Melanie Amaro and Stacy Francis.

As such, FOX picked up the competition for a second season today.

“I am absolutely thrilled with the news,” said Cowell. “I have loved making the show and I want to thank FOX, our sponsors and most importantly, the fans for supporting The X Factor.”

Adds Mike Darnell, President of Alternative Entertainment, Fox Broadcasting Company:

The X Factor is a monumental success. It’s won every night it’s been on the air, the talent is phenomenal, the live shows are spectacular and picking it up is a complete no-brainer. Simon and his team have done an incredible job with the show, and I’m absolutely thrilled to bring back The X Factor for another fantastic season."
