  3. I don't even know what Star Academy is.
     
  4. Star Academy is Big Brother + American Idol.

  5. Isn't Star Academy just the international name for Fame Academy?

  6. I only ever tuned into this for Megan because it really, really was car crash TV. The 'making it up as you go along' rules, the forcing of judges to put people in chairs, the whole Vinnie quitting thing. It was all really watch through your fingers carry on.

    I watched the final (flicking between SCD when anyone but Megan was on, then the results), but I just kind of noticed, what does she get!? No Winners Single or anything! Considering last years winner hasn't released anything yet (?), I wonder what they're actually going to do with her. Simon seems pretty keen on her, but who knows.
     
  7. Yes! The French version is sooooo iconic. The performance budget is.... Yath.

  8. It really is a tragedy we never had Madonna week during X Factor's hey day.

  9. The news below is so stupid, and I say that as someone who watched this religiously for the first decade.

    The only way to save this format is to give it 3+ years off, make people miss it so it can come back with a huge bang, and more importantly figure out a way for it to work in the current pop culture and streaming landscape.

    Running it into the ground even more when it's barely scraping 3million viewers this year is just... wild.

  10. Surely it was always going to get one final series as a send off?
     
  11. I suspect ITV see one more series of X Factor as a price worth paying for securing BGT for another five years.

  12. Yes. That, and a lack of faith that any replacement show on Saturday nights will do better.
