    Simon Cowell, the acerbic Brit who has helped give "American Idol" some of its sharpest — and nastiest — moments, will leave the popular singing show after this season.


    The cantankerous judge said that "The X Factor," a show he created and is a hit in Britain, will join Fox's schedule next year. Cowell will be on "The X Factor."


    Cowell's decision is the biggest threat yet to what has been the country's most popular TV program and a true cultural force. This season, original host Paula Abdul has been replaced by Ellen DeGeneres.

    Piers seems the only one fit to take Simon's place. I feel they will lose much without Simon. I think he is always on target as a judge. He will be missed as Paula will be.

    I hate to say it, but with the X Factor coming to Fox next season, and taking Simon, I don't see American Idol lasting much longer.

    Sadly, I think you're right, and it's too bad, I was hoping the show would last another 8 years so my daughter might get a shot...
