The X Factor, The Day After: Top 16 Reveal/Disaster Dish

Last night was supposed to be a major night for "The X Factor" Season 2--the suspenseful reveal of which 16 contestants will be moving on to the live competitive shows--but baseball, rain, and probably a few inept Fox control-room employees ruined Simon Cowell's big plans, resulting in what Simon declared an "f up" of colossal proportions. And it's an "f up" that could have long-term repercussions for the entire series.

Can "The X Factor" survive a sudden mid-episode preemption, rampant spoilers from this week's (non-preempted) Canadian broadcast, a temporary Tuesday timeslot against next week's "Voice," and a two-week hiatus during this month's World Series? My "The Day After" co-host Matt Whitfield really aren't sure...but we certainly hope so. Watch us discuss last night's X-traordinary disaster in the video below.
