    2009 (Hoff, Morgan, Osbourne) 3.2 rating, 12.81 million viewers
    2010 (Mandel, Morgan, Osbourne) 3.1 rating, 10.80 million viewers

    2013 (Mandel, Heidi, Mel B, Stern) 2.2 rating, 8.70 million viewers

    2016 (Mandel, Heidi, Mel B, Cowell) 2.6 rating, 12.28 million viewers

    AGT had its 1st of 2 "semi-finals shows" last night, and the number speak for themselves. The show is averaging well over 2 million more viewers a week than it was under Stern, and the ratings are the highest they have been in 5 years. I am sure that ratings number will be adjusted upward today when the final numbers come out. It is pretty clear that people "tuned out" AGT when Stern joined, and it took a few weeks, but Cowell has brought them back. I have watched the show a few times this season, and the chemistry between Cowell, Mandel, Heidi and Mel B. is much better than it was with a cranky Stern doing strange hand signals and calling himself "America's Judge". NBC has to believe that moving the show to NYC for Stern was an absolute failure, and firing Stern...err..I mean, letting him "go" because he was "too busy to do the show" was the best thing they did, as the show needed a guy like Cowell to come in and give CPR to it after Stern practically killed it. Luckily for AGT, they realized having Stern was a failure, and they have signed all judges to be back on next year. After that debacle, it is no wonder why Stern has not been given any further network TV offers..and never will. Edit to post..ratings for AGT adjusted up!

    ...so many people watching on tablets and stuff robin that the ratings don't really reflect the number of viewers. We're still the #1 show of the summer robin.

    Where's Mlaw to tell us that the 4 year rating slump had nothing to do with Wiggy because "all of these types if shows ratings are going down"?

    Yep, and this is an Olympic year so the ratings would normally be lower. That's the excuse Howard used when his ratings tanked.

    "Bowling for Dollars returns with our hosts Beth and Howard Stern after a word from our sponsor, Ashley Madison, who infamously hooked up that misfit couple in 1997."

    Rating don't count unless Trump has the highest numbers

    or unless Hillary does depending on which flavor of partisan hack you happen to be

    You know Howard planned on trashing the ratings this season because he just assumed the ratings would continue to fall since they did every year he was on. It is just must be killing him.

    And note to Stern Cult members who used the line "NBC loved Howard and they never wanted to get rid of him", assuming that is true it speaks to the moronic leadership at NBC and not that Howard was a successful ratings getter for AGT. If they were really renewing his contract every year and he only had a series of one year deals, whoever was making the decision to do so should be fired immediately. This season is further proof that Howard is ratings poison.
