Just as the Major League Baseball playoff schedule disrupted "The X Factor" earlier this season, its unexpectedly fast conclusion on Sunday has once again affected the singing competition — but this time, in a more positive fashion.

According to the show's Facebook page, the early finish of the World Series — with the San Francisco Giants sweeping the Detroit Tigers in four games — has led Fox executives to move up the start of the highly anticipated live shows from Thursday to Wednesday, with "X Factor" set to resume its previously scheduled Wednesday/Thursday two-day airing pattern.

In addition to the start of the live performances, Wednesday's show will also feature the debut of new hosts Khlo√© Kardashian and Mario Lopez. Kardashian and Lopez will take the stage to introduce the top 16 acts, divided into four categories — Teens, Over 25's, Groups and Young Adults — who will perform for Simon Cowell, Demi Lovato, Britney Spears and L.A. Reid. Thursday's show will feature the announcement of the still-to-be-determined number of top finalists, whittled from the top 16, who will return the following week to face America's vote.

Fox will air a repeat of the end of the Judges' Homes round and the Top 16 announcement Monday night (October 29) at 8 p.m. Later in the evening, look out for Cowell and Spears to tout their groups via anappearance on "The Tonight Show."
