How Did the Firing of Cheryl Cole Make That a Better Show?

There are some British celebrities that translate well when they come to America. Then there are some, like the Beckhams and Russell Brand, that go nowhere.

Cheryl Cole seemed like someone who would cross over and have some success. I watched that whole debacle play out, and I still can't see how getting rid of her the way they did made that show--or any show--better. If you want to dump someone, dump them and pay them. In this case, they dumped her and figured they could get away with not paying her.
