  1. Fox in my area should have aired X-Factor instead of threading in intermittent potions of sitcoms during the rain delayed baseball game. I’m sure X-Factor pulls in more viewers than the TV shows. The network made the wrong choice in my opinion. The baseball games could spill into next Tuesdays airing of last night’s episode as well pending the outcome of the games over the next 4 days.
