Question: Where are the X Factor live shows held and filmed in 2013?
Answer: The filming location for the X Factor USA season 3 live shows is CBS Television City in Los Angeles, California.
The Fairfax District based television studios have played host to Simon Cowell’s reality show since it first began broadcasting in 2011, with the audition rounds being held all around the country.
With a total of nine different judges and various presenter line-ups all within the Fox shows first three seasons, the use of CBS Television City is one of the few things to have remained consistent.
Despite it’s name, since 1952 the studio complex has seen many TV shows recorded there, not just CBS programs.
However, with the X Factor’s ratings having dropped so far during season 3, many believe this could be it’s last run on Fox, with judge Simon Cowell either returning to American Idol, the X factor UK, or possibly both. But then if your not going to put a contestant as good as Ashly Williams through to the finals, what do you expect?
