It's Official: New 'X Factor' Hosts Named

It's Official: New 'X Factor' Hosts Named, Khloe Kardashian and Mario Lopez have signed on to co-host the live performance show. Khloe Kardashian, Mario Lopez Officially Hired As 'X Factor' Hosts, Okay, "X Factor" fans, I have good news and bad news. Which would you like first? Oh, heck, let's just rip off the Band-Aid and get down to it: The bad news is, Khloe Kardashian--yes, THE Khloe Kardashian--has officially signed on to co-host "The X Factor," when the show goes live on November 1. [Insert Edvard-Munch-painting-esque scream here...]

Honestly, I do not know what Simon Cowell and Fox are thinking with this kontroversial Khloe kasting. Last year's "X Factor" host, British underwear model Steve Jones, was a disaster on the show, coming across as utterly un-empathetic and unlikable...and Steve actually had plenty of past TV-presenting experience. But none of that past experience properly prepared him to oversee a chaotic program that frequently involved sobbing children, contestant meltdowns, deadlocked decisions, rambling judges, and a strict schedule (because gawd forbid that the show ever preempt "Bones"). Poor Steve tried his best, but he just couldn't handle it. So what makes Simon think that Khloe, an E! reality starlet with zero TV hosting experience, will fare any better?
