I no longer listen to the show so all the AGT talk doesn't effect me.
What does effect me is all the gut busting laughter I got from this great website. Think of how many more douchechilling moments Howard will provide us with next year.
He was always going to re-sign. I actually think he originally signed a two year contract which gave him the ability to opt out. He was just doing his usual schtick to "build exctement".
ALso if he had called it quits the show would not have gotten any better. He would not rediscover his "edge". That ship has long since sailed.
Just think of all the fun screen grabs, spock signs, red carpets, melted platics faces, ect we will be in for. As well as all the laughter from other celebs at him, the 2013 loser of the summer awards, and the tanking ratings.
We are in for some fun
