    “On TV this Thursday: America decides who has The X Factor…”

    Ironically, not The X Factor itself.

  5. Shaun says:

    Sing Off tonight….really a shame they rushing the season like this.Think they had less groups this season and they are booting groups way faster at this stage.

    The Reign pilot reairs tonight. Even though I saw it when it was on the first time, I plan on watching it again because it’s THAT good, and I hope some new viewers give it a chance too.
