U.K. ‘X Factor’ coming to U.S. on AXS TV channel
August 07, 2014, 05:00 AM The Associated Press

LOS ANGELES — The British edition of “The X Factor” is coming to U.S. television.

Music entertainment cable channel AXS TV said Wednesday it will begin airing the singing contest’s 11th season on Labor Day weekend.

“X Factor” creator Simon Cowell is on the judging panel, which includes ex-Spice Girl Mel B and pop singer Cheryl Fernandez-Versini, formerly known as Cheryl Cole.

“The X Factor” is a hit in Britain and a success internationally, with the format produced in 48 TV markets.

The U.S. version was an exception: Fox’s “The X Factor” was canceled after three seasons because of disappointing ratings. Even Cowell’s popularity from “American Idol” didn’t help.

Britain’s “X Factor” debuts Aug. 31 on AXS TV, airing at 8 p.m. EDT on Sunday and Monday and following its U.K. broadcasts by a day.
