X Factor benched by rain-delayed ALCS

FabforumSimon Cowell will give a harsh review to Mother Nature.

A two-hour rain delay that pushed back the start of Game 4 of the American League Championship Series has prompted Fox to pull competition series The X Factor from its schedule Wednesday night.

 It was announced in the fifth inning of Wednesday's game between Detroit and Texas that X Factor will not be seen, but will return at its regularly scheduled time Thursday.

Tonight's two-hour telecast of X Factor was to include contestants going to the judges homes and celebrity guest judges such as Rihanna.

Instead, tonight’s planned telecast will air Thursday night.

Unfortunately, there's a good chance rain will delay tomorrow's ALCS game too, so X Factor may not be seen until next week.
