Five Reasons Why "The X-Factor" Is Better Than "American Idol"

1. Simon Cowell And Paula Abdul, Together Again

Everyone knows that Simon Cowell was the only good reason, apart from the audition week with all the people who are tone-deaf, to watch American Idol. When he left, a large part of the show died, and along with it most of our love. He may have a wack sense of style (Seriously, dude, those shirts have got to go.) but it's hard to argue that he wasn't the best and most honest judge on the show. Plus, he was kind of hilarious. Now that he's on The X-Factor, there's not much we can really see Idol competing with in terms of its judging team. (Also, we'll take L.A. Reid over Randy Jackson anyday, dawg.)

As for Paula, well, she was crazy and that always makes for good TV.
