Steve Jones hasn't exactly gotten rave reviews as host of X Factor. He's been criticized for several things, but the one I hear most often is that he cuts off the judges, especially Paula Abdul. Jones told Ellen Degeneres it's not him, it's the producers screaming in his earpiece, according to msn.com. Don't get me wrong, Paula isn't exactly brief in her comments and she does go on and on, but there's got to be a better way to keep the show moving than the way Jones does it.

It can't be easy to be compared to Ryan Seacrest, but I think Jones could take a few lessons from him. Ryan seems to keep Idol going without seeming rude, and he also connects with the viewers much better than Jones has so far.  What do you think? Who's the better host, Ryan Seacrest or Steve Jones?
