And the good news about The X Factor (7 p.m., Fox/Ch. 13) is that it can't possibly get any worse than it was last week when judge Nicole Scherzinger acted like an idiot and 13-year-old Rachel Crow went on a horrific crying jag when she was eliminated.
Scherzinger is an adult and deserves all the criticism she's received. If you're going to be a judge, make a decision. She copped out, leaving it up to the viewers vote, which went against Crow.
Crow, however, is a child. And her breakdown was just awful to watch.
This is not to suggest that she either should or should not have won. But neither Crow nor any other 13-year-old should have been there.
Simon Cowell and his team made much of allowing singers both older and younger than the rigid "American Idol" parameters. Older is fine, but - once again - children should not be on reality television.
"The X Factor" needs to raise its age limits.
