...a 2.1 robin.
Going against repeats - is the TV summer replacement equivalent of arguing with a tape to feel superior.
Robin, NBC is going to be sorry I don't come back after our ratings success this season. Robin?
The Stern effect is not a very good effect.

The 3rd live performance show failed to deliver once again for Stern and AGT. Once again...for the 3rd week in a row...AGT has absolutely zero competition for their "live performance show" and once again, the show failed to deliver any type of substantial rating. The performance show is in jeopardy of going where no performance show has ever gone before...below a 2.0 rating. If that happens, Stern will break yet another record while being on AGT. It is pretty clear what will not happen...Stern will never deliver a "live show" with a rating above a 3.0. He has not done so in the 4 years he has been on AGT, and with the record low numbers this year...he wont do it again. Tonight, AGT could be in for another blood bath as it goes up against Big Brother.....so far this season Big Brother 2....AGT with Stern 0.0.

A steady decline in ratings since the live shows started, isn't interest in these shows supposed to increase leading up to the finale. Howard's fail here has to have opened a lot of eyes in the industry.
Gee, you'd think all the fake drama about Howie Mandel pissing off Howard with Periscope would have caused at least 20 million of Wiggy's radio show listeners to watch AGT to see what happened.
It's a slow build Robin.....Robin?
The walls are crumbling down around Stern these days.....the guy is taking shots from everybody lately. The "demand" for Stern is at an all-time low now, and is only going to get lower once he leaves AGT. Sirius definitely has the "leverage" now in the negotiations with Stern....who wants this guy now? He has completely destroyed his "brand" and the HSS is not worth the millions Sirius originally paid for it. If I was Sirius/XM, I would move on without Stern and his 3-day work week.
The other judges laugh and have fun. Howard acts like he's got a poker up his ass.
"Robin, I'm here to judge, not to goof around." Howard, it's a goofy show and you're the goofy one for taking it too seriously.
The ratings are headed back to Onesville.
The ratings are declining in my honor Robin. Robin? Oh I see Fred.
Hopefully Howard's massive failure at AGT has gotten some attention in the entertainment industry. Sirius has almost 30 million subscribers (and Wiggy claims most of them joined for him) yet the AGT ratings continue to drop. If he really had even a small percentage of the listeners he claims to, the numbers would at the very least have stayed steady - the influx of new fans NBC was expecting should have offset the drop overall TV viewership. It's clear his audience is so small he's completely irrelevant at this point and he's lost any leverage he had in contract negotiations.
So true!!! If someone was stupid enough to lifetime subscribe because of Howard going to Sirius and PAY for it - then ALL those same people would clearly be at least dedicated to watch some show free where you get a VISUAL.
Howard's listener stats are as fake as Magic Johnson's assist numbers.
Yep, and the fact that HowardTV couldn't get enough subscribers to stay afloat was proof that very few people are willing to pay to watch or listen to Howard. That should be a major red flag to any subscriber-based service.
I always, always go back to the only Arbitron numbers ever taken for the HSS on Sirius. At that time, Howie had 1.2 million listeners cumulative for the week...this was back in 2007. I would say that the HSS was at its "satellite peak" in ratings at that time. Does anybody believe that number has grown since 2007? Even with the merger, the number didn't go up much. The lawsuit detailed that only a few hundred thousand subscribers at XM had access to Stern....so even if that number gets boosted to 2 million listeners cumulative per week, that's about the same number a "morning zoo" guy would get locally.
Howie has nowhere near 30 million listeners...the AGT numbers are a huge indication of is insignificance. Get the hint Howie...time to retire.
Whatever do you mean?
Are you saying that there's some sort of shenanigans with Magic's assists?
Is extremely close to rounding up to a 2.2 (currently reporting a 2.148 in these prelim fast-affiliate ratings).
