I don't think Britney is going to save the show, because Simon is still on it. And I think all of this is just PR stunts anyway.

it sucks how we have to watch with no sound when you are on a add brake. I liked it a lot better before.

Britney Spears as a judge on X Factor was a roll of the dice to begin with. Now TMZ claims that Simon caved in to her demands, this could spell trouble.

I don't see her or Demi Lovato coming close to what Jennifer Lopez contributes or means to American Idol

TMZ live used to be so fun to watch, now its a bit crappy... too much dead air... I used to enjoy being part of the office listening to production talk between Sirius commercials or even the old way of just Harvey and Jason, outside in the sun reading viewer emails.... this is become too much of a production and we are cut out of most of it...

The star power alone of Britney Spears is well worth the $15m they are paying her. However, like the first season if her presence doesn't impress viewers and or ratings, she will be going way of the Doh-Doh Bird just as quick as Paula and Nicole! GUARANTEED!
