    For a frame of reference--

    The Voice premiere got a 4.7--down from 4.8 for it's premiere last spring
    The Voice Finale got a 3.3--down from its 4.4 for the finale last spring

    Survivor finale-- 2.6 --down from 2.7 last year--- tied American Idol--2.6 as well, which was way down from 3.3

    AGT premiered with a 3.1 last year


    So with overall network ratings in decline for reality and most all other shows, what do you predict for AGT, and being objective, what's a respectable showing?

    They are paying Howard a shit load of money to bring ratings. .. Ratings being down is irrelevant

    If the ratings continue to go down even by a little bit the Howard experiment has failed

    It's like a pitcher that got a fat contract to throw heat that now can't strike anyone out

    Enough with the slow build bullshit

    Howard is the lead judge...right Robin.
    Howard is the highest paid judge.
    Howard was paid lots of money to deliver his millions of radio fans.
    Howards streak of fail will continue.


    How will we know the fail continues?
    Stern will NEVER mention AGT ratings.....:hat:

    Ratings are down overall, The Voice premiered at a 5.1 in 2011--the finale this wek, scored a 3.3---

    Network ratings are in serious decline, and don't account for viewing on other platforms

    Looking at the photo in the OP it occurs to me that Wiggy just not fit there, does not belong. If anything they should put Nick Cannon in his place, and either make Wiggy the backstage buffoon asking kids "how they think they did" or just dismiss the Wig outright.

    That's not to say Nick will help improve the ratings - I think the show's ultimately doomed even though there are so many flyover mouth breathers that will watch - but Wiggy is so damn awkward in that group that Nick could only be an improvement. Hell, make the guy that holds the boom mic a judge. Anybody.

    It remains the ultimate mystery why executives at a major network executive would sign off on Wiggy for even one season, nevermind three.

    Howard never talking about AGT ratings is an admission of his fail.

    It's not about ratings it's about ad revenue, and ad revenue is up for networks---it's about money

    They are pushing the fuck out of it... watched the voice the other night and all they had were ads during it, and Mel B talking about it

    Anything below a 3 rating/10 million viewers is a failure.

    In the real world or the Howard world?
    Real world: 5.5
    Howard: 1.2 but there are 1045 people watching every tv.

    there are very few predictions in here, you're stating it's already a fail, I disagree

    If the Voice got a 4.7 then Howard, the king of all media with 20 million listeners should get a 5.0 minimum.

    However we know that wont be the case so fuck him. Any ratings they get will be because old school fans love Howie. Housewives want to see Heidi aka the project runway lady. And you will have a select group of girls and spicegirl fans tuning in for Mel B.

    Bobo and MaryAnne will tune in for Howard so there is what he adds.

    4.5 or bust

    2.6 or 2.7 will make it the most watched SUMMER show. What's the competition? Reruns of NCIS and a weight loss show?
