to hope Simon Cowell's ventures this autumn fall flat on their face?

He is a vile creature imo.
I think people will look back on him in 20 years time and feel the same amount of derision for him as people of today feel towards Hughie Green.
I know that the country will go into a 4 months X factor worship as per usual, but I really hope it is unsucsessful this year. I used to watch it however I think it is a ghastly and manipulative gladiators arena. Cher Lloyd and Katie Waissel in particular last year were vilified. I just wish it would go away.
Ditto for his X Factor launch in american, I hope the americans raise 2 fingers to it and it is a flop.

I'm like monstamunch I vote with my remote control and don't watch any shite like that. I said to DD she can watch it in her bedroom if she wanted and she would rather watch spongebob, excellent taste she's got.
I'd rather watch paint dry then BGT or X factor. I don't care if Simon Cowell falls flat on his face.

annoyingdevil yes amazing how he is best friends for life with all his ex's isnt it?
C'mon, simon, its very cold out there in Narnia!!! We will still love you.....
As for x factor et al, they already are dying off. People are seeing through it (finally). I wouldnt put it past him to use his own cash to keep it looking popular though, then just cancel the series. His PR mind wouldnt let it die a death.

I quite like the cat's bum look. I look like Dierdre Barlow's mother. Suits me.
borninafrica oh please. We are permitted to talk trivial shit on mumsnet. If it bothers you why don't you do something intelligent and ignore it if it upsets your sensibilities.

I like Simon Cowell. I dont care if some of his shows are shit. It is what he has managed to do that i admire. He has gone from nothing having to go back home to live with his mum to mega riches.
He knows what the vast majority of the public what and he has supplied it and in the process made millons.

I haven't watched this since the 1st series, when I came to realise that it was all about the judges ,[especially Simon Cowell] rather than the contestants. Yes it is a massive manipulation and I choose not to participate.
I also never read Heat or any other 'celeb magazines' so the whole thing is quite easy to annoy. Along with Katie Price, Kerry Katona , Big Brother and all the rest of the crap.
