Simon Cowell is feeling a little overworked.

The 49-year-old told told the UK Sun that a tough 2008 put him into an introspective position about where he wants to take his busy career, which includes three television shows, a record label and production company.

“I got to the point where I was doing Idol, finishing auditions, getting room service at 10pm and then working for another six or seven hours on the British stuff," Cowell told the Web site. “You do that week after week, month after month and it takes its toll on you.”

Though he stopped short of mentioning which endeavor would be first on a possible chopping block, he intimated doing all of the shows might not be feasible much longer.

“It’s a nice position to be in, but we may have to adapt a few things," he said. "I got lucky over the last few years — the shows have done well, it does pay well and I’m not going to start bleating on. But there are only so many hours in the day. Eventually something may have to give.”
