It’s time to get a babysitter, guys, because your Halloween plans are about to get all Xed up.

Even though we were previously told that The X Factor would start airing live episodes on November 1, 2012, that’s not the case anymore.

According to FOX’s latest press release:

The “Judges Homes” round has come to an end, and judges Simon Cowell, Britney Spears, Demi Lovato and L.A. Reid have selected the Top 16 acts that will continue in the competition. Find out which acts will wow the audience and which ones will crack under pressure in an all-new special two-hour-and-seven-minute LIVE episode of THE X FACTOR airing Wednesday, Oct. 31 (8:00-10:07 PM ET live/PT tape-delayed) on FOX.

But worry not friends — your tasteful Kim Kardashian Halloween costume will be just as relevant and well-received by your television as it would have been by your conservative neighbors. Why? Because Wednesday’s episode will be the first featuring  new hosts Khloe Kardashian and Mario Lopez.

Looks like The X Factor showrunners checked the “Trick” button this year... what a treat!
