Simon Cowell joined us, and in true Simon form, boasted "The X Factor" will knock off all the other singing/dancing TV shows -- including "American Idol" -- because it has "NO RULES."

Plus, Dax joins Michaele Salahi in the "groupie slut" category, why Twitter is killing rap music ... and Mel Gibson was just minding his own business, eating a "sweet pastry," when all of a sudden...

(46:30) Simon Cowell is on the phone! He says there are NO RULES on this season of "The X Factor" ... which makes for great TV.
(48:30)  Simon makes it clear -- he wants to be #1 ... and "American Idol" is standing in his way.
(51:00) Why "Factor" will be the best.
(53:00) Simon has a laugh about Harvey's single.

TMZ Live use to be great when you answered our questions and Harvey told stories. Now it is just for people to plug their crappy TV shows and to recap things that are already on website. I miss Harveys stories. I miss Lawyer Fridays with Jason. Bring back some of the old show please.

She could have gotten past security by knowing the promoter, band member, or any number of ways guys. All kidding aside.

I believe she did use the service. The dating service can subpoena the men she was set up with. Gail should have responded to the lady's email. She will probably settle.

DISCO DUCK was my and my BFF's favorite song. We played that song so much while bathing and making suds beards her sister broke into the bathroom and crack the record, 45, in half. We still laugh about it today! Soo funny! Loved that song!

OK, so Charles is there and he's not anchoring? WTH is going on??? This is EXTREMELY disappointing. Nothing against Dax but Charles is better. I always agree with everything he says.

What's next, Mike Walters? He can't speak without hand gesturing. Put a wig and lipstick on him and call him Aunt Edna. Over and out!
