Back when the show was actually good, Howard would cut off a bit or interview when it was going nowhere. Now every interview goes at least an hour no matter how boring and repetitive it is and it's been years since they did a bit that was remotely funny. If he thinks people actually want to hear Joan Rivers for the 100th time or give a shit about AGT he's so completely out of touch with his audience there's no hope that things will ever get better. Even that critic who always lathers Howard's ass (Bob Lefsetz) says AGT is a horrible show and Howard made a big mistake by doing it. In fact things have been WORSE since they supposedly started having those staff meetings, not a single original idea has come out of them and they just continue to recycle lame old stuff. Which brilliant creative mind came up with the idea for a fake controversy about pissing on the bathroom floor a few months after one about shitting?
