‘The X Factor’ USA: Khloe Kardashian, Mario Lopez to debut Wednesday

For those of you who did not want to wait to see the start of “The X Factor” live shows, we now have some good news coming your way: thanks in part to baseball actually ending early for a change, the show is going to keep the same sort of schedule that it has had for most of this season.

What does this mean? Basically, you are going to be seeing the debut of Mario Lopez and Khloe Kardashian as co-hosts for the show beginning on Wednesday night, which is one day earlier than originally planned. With this in mind, the first results show of the season will be happening the following day. The good news for the acts? They no longer have to worry about people changing their TV schedules in order to fit them in. As for the bad news, however, they have to hope that everyone finds out about the time change in enough time so that people actually remember to watch.

Overall, we have to say that our own personal excitement level this year is far higher than it was almost through all of last season, thanks largely to the fact that the talent not only is solid this year, but the judges seem to be people that are giving us the truth rather than just sugarcoating everything. The only thing we can’t predict is whether or not Lopez and Kardashian are going to be a sizable improvement over Steve “the producers are yelling in my ear” Jones. (If nothing else, hopefully the results shows will not constantly be such a state of panic.)

Do you think it’s a good thing that “The X Factor” is staying on schedule from here on out?
