The X Factor if officially consuming your weekend (only if you let it, mind) with an additional few hours coverage of a Friday thanks to the American version of the show.... After opening to less than favourable reviews stateside (critics called Nicole Scherzinger a 'seat warmer' and Steve Jones 'Irrelevant') Simon Cowell's juggernaut sees solo singers and groups compete to win a recording contract by impressing the interchangeable judges. Wait, there's more coverage from 10.30pm... If it's all a bit too much, you can always devote your telly time to the second part of DCI Banks, which can be seen over on UTV from 9.00pm.
