Worry no more, "X Factor" fans: Fox is cleaning up the mess it made on Wednesday.

After Fox ditched "The X Factor" to wait out a rain delay for Game 3 of the National League Championship series, fans -- and Simon Cowell -- were enraged.

"It's what's knows as a total f up," Cowell tweeted.

Fox cut off the episode after the first hour and went back to game, leaving viewers clueless about which Top 16 contestants would make it to the Live Shows.

The network has made a few adjustments to its primetime schedule next week to make room for the episode. While "Raising Hope," "Ben &Kate" and "New Girl" will air in their usual 8-9:30 block, this week's "X Factor" episode will air in place of "The Mindy Project" from 9:30 to 10:30 p.m. ET.

Last Wednesday's episode of "The X Factor" will air in its entirety on Tues., Oct. 23 at 9:30 p.m. ET on Fox with an all new episode airing the following day at 8 p.m. ET.
