It's official. Los Angeles Reid (ok...L.A. Reid), the man responsible for breaking Justin Beiber, is leaving Simon Cowell's X-Factor show to spend more time with his family. Does anyone other than Brendan Spaar think that this is a cop out? The show has had terrible ratings this year. Re-runs of the Big Bang Theory have beaten it. The only original cast member (besides Mr. Cowell who isn't going anywhere) is Reid. It is surprising that Reid didn't leave the show with Paula Abdul and Nichole Scherzinger. Maybe it was to show solidaridy in that the show wasn't a complete failure. After all, the host and two judges bit the dust. If Simon was the only survivor it would show total failure, something that Simon Cowell is not used to.
