    The 2011 Season premiere of AGT scored 15.28 million viewers

    If Howard's AGT does NOT do a significant amount more viewers then look for the network to panic and Howard spin control to go into effect

    why would the network panic if it has more viewers than it did last year?

    you want viewership to go up not down...

    I think the OP left out "not" between "does" and "do".

    Even if the ratings suck, Howard will claim a big success.

    Don't worry - technology/sports/fast food/TV expert Jon Hein has been working on a list of excuses for next week if the AGT ratings aren't a big hit.

    Does the wig count for one ratings point? We all know rating are going to be a few million lower. Wiggy pissed on his true fans and middle America will not watch because they see him as an aging shock jock. The tv execs are retarded for putting unattractive old people on tv. Look what that creepy Steve Tyler did to AI ratings.

    Top Howard excuses:

    1. I was up against The Bachelorette and Dancing with the Stars.

    2. DVRs

    3. Nielsen sucks at counting people.

    Keep in mind.. that much like Conan on the tonight show.. there will be an initial spike in viewership..

    But if Americas viewing habits remain what they always have been.. expect viewership to start to go south with every show....

    NBC is betting 15 million on Howard and I don't think they will be happy with ratings that don't blow the competition away. ...

    Also to to the best of my knowledge this will be the first time that any of Howard's shows have mainstream sponsors like Coke, Pepsi,Walmart, McDonald's... etc

    which will be watching the ratings closely given their past history of avoiding Howard like a the plague

    also look for the facts that we killed snapple stock in the 90"s?
    we Killed many things & subcribed to sirius without any thoughts?
    howcie pissed on us, we left.
    now tell us how many left & how many still stay only because they have livetime subscriptions?

    look at it this way...

    this is like the Denver Broncos signing Manning this off season... they like NBC are not going to put that kind of money in Howard's pocket and allow him to take

    a few seasons to find his stride.. they are looking instant payback on their investment.. I mean shit Howard is replacing Pierce who STILL isn't exactly a household name
