    I'm surprised the debates are doing so well in viewership. I was a Republican until 2008 and still retain a number of conservative positions but I have no desire to watch it. I guess people like a train wreck.

    And AGT will fail and send Howard out with the lowest rated finale in it's history.

    Howard: "People can't find AGT, Robin! NBC keeps moving it around on their schedule. I tried to talk to the producers about it, but they don't listen to me. What do I know? Plus I guess there was some dumb debate show on last night. Right, Gar?"

    Ape: "Yeah, no, listen. The Republican debate was a last-minute deal, and a bit of a stumble, in that they went up against your AGT Finale. It couldn't have gone well for them."

    People watch that the debate they way they watch NASCAR... just waiting for a four-car pileup of stupid in turn 3. It helps that CNN asked a bunch of inane bullshit questions to try and help that along.

    It got high ratings because of Trump and nothing else. People don't give a fuck about politics, they want the Trump spectacle and cheap pot-spots.

    Robin, they tell me that Nielsen gave their viewers new boxes that overinflate the numbers for Presidential debates and decreases the actual numbers for anything up against it. My sources from NBC believe we actually drew a 7.9 rating and 25 million people viewed the season finale of AGT. I am so proud of the fact that I am leaving AGT at a really good place and with monster ratings.

    Robin, they refuse to calculate in watch parties and people that watch the show on more than one tv. Also it's a slow build. That and It's "Around".
    And things of this nature.
