THE X FACTOR
Series premiere date: September 21
Why you should watch: Already a worldwide phenomenon, this reality singing competition has finally come to America. The X Factor's powerhouse judges' table includes former American Idol duo Simon Cowell and Paula Abdul, as well as ex-Pussycat Doll Nicole Scherzinger and big-time record exec Antonio "L.A." Reid. Even better? The host, Welsh hottie Steve Jones, is way sexier than Seacrest.
Why you'll keep tuning in: It's American Idol on steroids — once you start watching, you won't be able to stop. (Simon will yell at you if you do.)
