1. Family Guy's season four and five are superior than its first three seasons.
2. Talent shows such as American Idol and X Factor are pointless in the long term. Their contribution to the music industry is virtually non-existent, and there will never be a contestant who will be as established as even the artists of today like Lady Gaga or Katy Perry.
3. I liked some of NBC's canceled programs such as Awake and The Playboy Club.
4. I think Montgomery Clift is an underrated actor, and found him to be better than the overrated Marlon Brando.
I'll probably think of more.
X Factor has been on in the UK for like 7 years now, I don't watch the X Factor UK, but I watch X Factor USA which has only had one season so far.
But Leona Lewis came from X Factor UK, Cheryl Cole came from X Factor UK, and her girl band, who have been successful here. JLS, One Direction, Olly Murs, all came from the X Factor UK too...
I'm not making an opinion of if those people are good or not, but they are now big in the music industry, but you might not have heard of some of those in the USA, but most people probably have.
I don't even watch American Idol, but there are people like Kelly Clarkson and Adam Lambert who have came from that...
And probably the most notable one, even though it's not from the X Factor or American Idol, Susan Boyle came from Britain's Got Talent.
