I thought that tweet was a little random In the midst of my whining and moaning about FOX's terrible programming decisions

Re: Look, you know, our draws are not rigged they are just unlikely. (pt2)

I really gave @FoxBroadcasting a piece of my mind tonight

Jessica S ‏@savestheday91
Why can we not watch XFactor?! *whine* *whine* I repeat. No one wants to watch Ben and Kate. No one.

Jessica S ‏@savestheday91
@FoxBroadcasting Considering news is at 10 on the East Coast, when exactly will XFactor ever air so I can set my DVR? 2 or 3 am? ARGH.

Jessica S ‏@savestheday91
@FoxBroadcasting I know you want to promote Ben and Kate, but we could have seen the first hour of XFactor right now.

Jessica S ‏@savestheday91
I am never going to watch Ben and Kate again.. not because it's on now, but because it's not at all funny.

Jessica S ‏@savestheday91
Guess I don't have to watch Survivor On Demand CBS is the ultimate network. #suckingupneverhurts

Jessica S ‏@savestheday91
I'm going to guess these FOX peeps didn't go to Newhouse, because this is not intelligent decision making. *shrug*

Then they actually aired X Factor for about an hour lol.

But THEN more stupidity occurred

Jessica S ‏@savestheday91
UM WHERE DID X FACTOR GO

Jessica S ‏@savestheday91
@FoxBroadcasting Pretty sure XFactor is one of the biggest shows for your network, why are you messing with us!

Jessica S ‏@savestheday91
@FOXBroadcasting Why are you showing The Mindy Project at 9:48pm EST? You people are a hot mess.

Jessica S ‏@savestheday91
We were only halfway through Team Demi! You showed us teaser commercials and then cut to.. a new show that's not even supposed to air? #fail

Jessica S ‏@savestheday91
XFACTOR IS NOT AIRING TIL TUESDAY?! TUESDAY! WTF @FoxBroadcasting this it a terrible decision WHY IS THE MINDY PROJECT ON?

Jessica S ‏@savestheday91
@FoxBroadcasting if the game is resuming at 10:05 why are you showing us 10 minutes of a new show instead of 10 more of what was already on?

Jessica S ‏@savestheday91
@FoxBroadcasting Do you realize if you didn't start with Ben and Kate you could have shown ALL of XFactor? #dumbchoices

Jessica S ‏@savestheday91
I don't know what intern was making the choices tonight at FOX but they probably go to Georgetown.

(Syracuse people take any possible chance to jab at Georgetown. )

Jessica S ‏@savestheday91
I'm just going to find out all over the Internet who was chosen for XFactor and watch the Voice instead on Tuesday. @FOXBroadcasting

And I end with a bang

Is the US version good?

I liked the UK version at first, when they did blind auditions, but it became too X Factor-ry once they got to the final stages.

Just got back from my law seminar, now I have to do two hours of mathematics and then babysit for some friends until midnight. I'll catch you guys another time.

No one who has been on the first two seasons has had any actual success but I enjoy watching it I don't even think I've heard any of the people from the Voice on the radio ever.

If you manage to ignore the boobs of Christina I think the contestants are better than last year but not excellent. Some interesting characters. And since Blake won last year, more sparks between him and Christina. But as I said, Adam is just

I started watching because of you guys.

Adam and Blake are cute together.

I guess Christina is leaving after this season. I find it hard to meld the put together Christina on the show and the pictures of Christina being half carried out of clubs.

I'm sure the Voice is scripted and it's producers calling the shots more than it is the "stars" working hard with the contestants, but the feel of it is a lot softer than the X Factor with it's really loud graphics and super scripted show. I mean, am I supposed to believe that someone is singing out by the swimming pool with full band accompaniment and perfect sound? Uh no. That sound only comes from a studio. And then I have to see Demi Lavato with full extensions and a HAT? Horrors. I am surprised that Britney seems so real. But I had to give an ironic smile when she talked to a young girl about whether she was able to handle the pressures of the business.

I'm in kind of a black, cynical mood today. So, maybe I sound harsh. Dunno. Not unhappy, just have my more Eastern European outlook today.

Our X Factor is really suffering because many people believe it's rigged. And those aren't just haters saying it.

It seems Cowell is putting all his eggs in the US basket, though. I doubt he cares much about the UK version anymore.
