Is ‘The X Factor’ UK new tonight on ITV, or delayed again due to rugby?

The latest news -At this point, we imagine that ITV viewers just have to be more than familiar with rugby getting in the way of new episodes of “The X Factor” coming on the air. For several weeks now the show has pushed back the Saturday shows thanks to the sporting event, and it will be happening once again today.

If there is a little bit of solace we can give you if you are a fan of the singing and not the sport, it is this: You’re not going to be subjected to too many more delays in the future. The Saturday shows are going to be back very soon, and right as we start to move our way out of the Six Chair Challenge and into the Judges’ Houses, the next phase and one of the most important of the entire season. It is here where the contestants will perform, and the results will be revealed in a live broadcast before we prepare for the live shows. That is a little bit of a format tweak this year, probably to increase the suspense that much more.

Sunday’s Six Chair Challenge show will feature the end of Cheryl Fernandez-Virsini’s Groups, and then also Simon Cowell’s Overs performing. Following that, there will be a new episode of “Downton Abbey” airing.

We do want to end this particular article on a conspiracy-related note: Isn’t it interesting that the Girls were the only category to get an entire show devoted to them?
