Simon Cowell, Paula Abdul Make the Media Rounds (Kimmel, Letterman, Today)

The X Factor premieres tonight on FOX at 8 pm,   Simon Cowell and Paula Abdul have been making the media rounds to promote the big show.

Paula Abdul has a confusing conversation with David Letterman on The Late Show about the difference between X Factor and American Idol. (Earlier in the day she chatted it up with Regis and Kelly).

On Jimmy Kimmel Live,   Simon is easily goaded by Jimmy into dissing Idol.  Virtually a bash fest, Simon says at one point, “I’m going to get in so much trouble.”  (Check Simon out on Piers Morgan Tonight)

And, finally, Simon Cowell seems a little nervous about the launch of his new show when he talks to Matt Lauer of the Today Show.  Simon is certain there are people just waiting for his show to fail.  *coughsimonfullercough*.
