LOS ANGELES — The British edition of "The X Factor" is coming to U.S. television.
Music entertainment cable channel AXS TV said Wednesday it will begin airing the singing contest's 11th season on Labor Day weekend.
"The X Factor" is a hit in Britain and a success internationally, with the format produced in 48 TV markets.
The U.S. version was an exception: Fox's "The X Factor" was canceled after three seasons because of disappointing ratings. Even Cowell's popularity from "American Idol" didn't help.
Britain's "X Factor" debuts Aug. 31 on AXS TV, airing at 8 p.m. EDT on Sunday and Monday and following its U.K. broadcasts by a day.
