Fox’s The X Factor apparently has already held its first elimination round of Season 3, kutting Khloe Kardashian as a kohost.

“They are asking Mario [Lopez] to come back, but not Khloe,” a source tells the New York Post.

The Post also is resurfacing the oldie-but-goodie that British singer Cheryl Cole, who was unceremoniously excised from Season 1′s judging panel, is being asked back, to join Simon Cowell and two other panelists.

Fox is not commenting on the Post‘s reports, which come a month after it was officially announced that Britney Spears will not return as a judge.

Ready for more of today’s TV dish? Well…

* Up All Night may be 100-percent down for the count. Our sister site Deadline reports that the problem-magnet sophomore — which during its prolonged hiatus was being rejiggered as a multi-cam sitcom, only to see series creator Emily Spivey and lead Christina Applegate abruptly exit stage left — now isn’t even moving forward with the one “test” episode (downgraded from five) they wanted to shoot in front of a studio audience. Will Arnett is said to be fielding multiple pilot offers and is leaning toward a Greg Garcia project, while Maya Rudolph is being courted to join NBC’s Sean Hayes comedy Happiness.

* As announced during this past weekend’s Saturday Night Live telecast, comedian Kevin Hart (currently of BET’s Real Househusbands of Hollywood) will host the NBC show on March 2, with musical guest Macklemore & Ryan Lewis.
