Fox has announced its plans for its off-season American Idol-ish singing competition, The X Factor. The performance night of Simon Cowell’s import will be 90 minutes long on Wednesdays at 8 p.m., and the results show will be an hour long on Thursday nights. The X Factor will premiere in September, and will no doubt feature at least one contestant who tried and failed to make it on the bevy of other televised singing competitions currently available on the market.
