Khloe Kardashian is out. But Mario Lopez remains in.

Fox confirmed this morning that the television personality will return this fall as host of The X Factor.

“I’m thrilled Mario is back for Season Three of The X Factor,” said producer Simon Cowell. “Hosting a live show and keeping the judges – especially Demi – in line, is not an easy job, but Mario is a pro and we are glad he’s coming back.”

As stated above, Demi Lovato will occupy a spot on the show’s judging panel, while Cowell sits in another. The slots vacated by L.A. Reid and Britney Spears are yet to be filled, however.

Are you excited Mario Lopez will serve again as X Factor host?
