2012's Most Odd Yet Wonderful TV Duos

As 'The X Factor' comes to an end this week, I wonder what will become of the show in its third season. Even though Simon Cowell and Demi Lovato bicker like a petulant teenager and irksome uncle, I quite like their relationship. I never thought they would share much chemistry, but the 'X Factor' duo has been delightful to watch, which made me think of other pairs on other shows that have been a surprising treat.

As "The X Factor" comes to an end this week (Goooooooooo, Carly Rose or Tate Stevens! Please, anyone but Fifth Harmony. Ugh.), I wonder what will become of the show in its third season. Simon is obviously staying, L.A. has announced his departure, but what are the fates of Britney and Demi? To be honest, I'm not sure if Brit will stick around (though if her lone contestant wins this thing, she might), but Lovato has to, right?

Plus, even though they bicker like a petulant teenager and irksome uncle, I quite like the relationship between Simon and Demi. It's not mean-spirited, nor is it personal, and it's kind of fun to see who can out-smirk and out-eye-roll the other. I never thought Simon and Demi would share much chemistry, but the "X Factor" duo has been delightful to watch, which made me think of other pairs on other shows that have been a surprising treat.

Let me know if you agree with these odd TV couples, and more importantly, who I missed.
