    That's on Memorial day weekend when every other show has reruns because people are supposed to be out. Give it a couple weeks.

    When did getting less ratings each year start to be considered good? They do the same thing with Jimmy Fallon and the Tonight Show. Compared to Leno's ratings, Fallon's show is much lower but there is never any talk about what a failure that show is now.

    Show sucks. Plain and simple.

    Can we get a "spin" fro Jon Hein on these numbers?

    To the network, all that matters is the 18-49 demo and this is worst premiere of the series in terms of that demo breaking last year's low which was the worst opening ratings of the demo.

    Howard seems to be gaining traction with kids and old people though. In about 10 years, he might be popular in the 18-49 demo. Granted his terrestrial radio audience will have mostly aged out by then. So it could be a wash.

    AGT and Hein can spin it by saying it's the #1 show of the evening with more viewers than last year - just pay no attention to the lower rating in the key demographic.

    Its basically flat from last year. I didn't watch last night (or ever) so I'm not sure about the talent but that is what is going to decide where it goes from here.

    The thing they will crow about is that all the other talent shows have opened down double digits while they are only down 3%, kind of the least smelly pile in a cow pasture.

    I got into an argument with a Howard sheep on SFN where he said "But AGT wins it timeslot every year". As if it is a major accomplishment in beating NCIS reruns and a bunch of god-awful reality shows that couldn't get decent ratings if all the other networks put test patterns up against them.
