    AGT moving from Newark to Radio City Music Hall

    'Talent' will land at Radio City

    BY KENNETH LOVETT

    Howard Stern prefers to make ‘America’s Got Talent’ in New York City

    ALBANY — “America’s Got Talent†is moving from New Jersey to Radio City Music Hall — thanks to the new Jimmy Fallon tax credit.

    NBC and Gov. Cuomo are to announce Wednesday that the popular show, which features Howard Stern as one of four judges, will make the move for its upcoming eighth summer season, a source told the Daily News.

    The move is said to be for creative reasons. Stern, who still hosts a daily satellite radio show on Sirius/XM, has complained about the stress of taping in Newark while also doing his radio show in Manhattan.

    But NBC Universal has also credited a new, expanded film tax benefit Cuomo pushed for in the new state budget, the source said.

    The $420 million annual program, which gives companies producing movies or TV series in the state a tax credit equal to 30% of production costs, will now also cover talk and variety programs that relocate to New York after having filmed at least five seasons in another state.

    "America's Got Talent" premiered in the summer of 2006.

    Eligible shows also must be filmed before a studio audience of at least 200 people and have an annual production budget of at least $30 million or incur at least $10 million a year in capital expenses.

    The tax credit was apparently designed to help lure “The Tonight Show†from California. The show is expected to soon be in New York, with Fallon replacing Jay Leno as host.

    It's unclear just how much "America's Got Talent" will receive in tax credits for the relocation. But the source said the show is expected to create 500 jobs and result in more than $100 million in economic activity in New York.

    Soon it will be moved to the Sirius studio building so Howard doesn't have to be driven another whole block away.

    Daily radio show?
    popular show?

    Lol... Not anymore they're not.

    Guess Howard can't make another "this is my grueling commute that I've only ever done twice" videos this year.

    Howard claims he just found out Radio City Music Hall is across the street from the Sirius building and wants to know if there's an underground tunnel between the two.

    So the brilliant minds at NBC decide to move a show that can't fill an auditorium in San Antonio without giving away tickets and busing in local High School students to "Fill Out" the crowd, to Radio City Music Hall and it's six-thousand seat capacity.:bigthink


    Oh yeah, that will work out just fine.:unuts:

    No wonder NBC is so fucked up.:shitfan:

    Will Howard take a limo to Radio City? I hear it's a long journey from Sirius XM, a long journey across the street.
