    Newark, NJ (PRWEB) April 08, 2012
    The hit NBC alternative series "America's Got Talent" will have a fresh new perspective from the East Coast as the summer's top-rated series has found its brand new home for its seventh season, broadcasting live two nights a week from Prudential Hall at the New Jersey Performing Arts Center (NJPAC) beginning in July. American radio personality, television host and author Howard Stern joins the show as a judge, along with Howie Mandel and Sharon Osbourne. Nick Cannon returns as host.


    Located in Newark, NJ, the New Jersey Performing Arts Center is among the largest performing arts centers in the United States. The state-of-the-art venue will hold an audience of over 2,200 fans for each show. “America’s Got Talent†was created by Simon Cowell’s SYCO Television and is co-produced by Syco TV and FremantleMedia North America.


    “We’re excited fans of ‘America’s Got Talent’ who live on the east coast will finally get a chance to see the show live from the beautiful New Jersey Performing Arts Center, a first-class venue with a history of showcasing the world’s top talent,†said Cecile Frot-Coutaz, CEO, FremantleMedia North America. “If the passionate crowds we’ve had at this season’s auditions are any indication, it’s going to be the place to be this summer.â€
    "Moving to the East Coast will infuse the show with a refreshing new attitude and a larger live theater experience that will bring an enhanced vitality and energy," said Paul Telegdy, President, Alternative and Late Night Programming, NBC. "This spectacular new site will also reward our many loyal East Coast fans who now can see the show in person and in far greater numbers than in previous seasons."


    “We're honored and delighted that NBC, Syco TV and FremantleMedia have selected the New Jersey Performing Arts Center as the new home for 'America’s Got Talent,' the country's favorite summer series,†said John Schreiber, NJPAC President and CEO. “This is a huge opportunity to introduce NJPAC, where the world’s greatest artists have performed for fifteen years, to the rest of the nation. Beyond that, the show's residence in the great city of Newark will deliver significant economic impact and visibility that will benefit the City and the State, as thousands of crew, aspirants, and audiences spend here on food, lodging, travel, and other ancillary expenses. This is a major coup for the Arts Center, for Newark, and for the State of New Jersey.â€


    “America’s Got Talent†will premiere with two two-hour episodes on Monday, May 14 (8-10 p.m. ET) and Tuesday, May 15 (8-10 p.m. ET). The show’s return will feature the first appearance of new judge Howard Stern, who joins fellow judges Howie Mandel and Sharon Osbourne. The series then resumes in its regular day and time on Monday, May 21 (8-9 p.m. ET) and on Tuesday, May 22 (9-10 p.m. ET).


    "America's Got Talent" was the #1 non-sports telecast on ABC, CBS, NBC or Fox in total viewers every week it aired over the summer of 2011, making it the #1 summer series in total viewers for a sixth year in a row. Last summer, "America's Got Talent" delivered its highest-rated cycle ever. “America’s Got Talet†is the only talent competition show that is open to any age and any talent.

    AT first I thought they meant the new Prudential center, but it's not. NJ Pac is on Rt 21, McCarter Highway. If it's daytime you can walk there from Penn Station Newark.

    Whenever Howard comes back to work, some caller should lie his way on the air and ask Howard about this

    From 12/12/07:

    Howard said that there's this broadcaster who made a comment about the new building that the NJ Devils are playing in these days and how bad the neighborhood was there. Now the guy has to apologize for his comments about it. He was just telling the truth about it and now he's gotten into some trouble over the comments. All he said was that it was a bad neighborhood. The mayor flew him in and took him on a tour of the city after that. Howard said that they did a show from Newark one time and the mayor was really into that. He said that they got into some trouble when they mentioned that it was the biggest carjacking neighborhood in the world. Howard said he has no desire to take a tour of that city so he's not going to say anything negative about it.


    Howard said that he wanted to go out for lunch when they were rehearsing the show in Newark but they told him not to go out on the street. He said that he was told he'd probably get killed if he went out there. Artie said that there are some dangerous areas there but some of it is nice and safe.


    Gary said that his father was robbed in Newark one time and had a shotgun shoved in his mouth. He said that he went to see a concert there one time and it was really nice inside. He said you just can't go outside.
