    As far as talent shows go (and i don't really like them) star search with ed mcmahon which was on in the 80's and maybe early 90's was 100 times better then any of the shitty ass clown talent shows on today..first of all they had catagorys (comedy, song, dance, etc) and the show was all about the talent not the back stories and moronic judges and screaming assholes etc...i mean how many of these fucken shows do we need on tv..i think old howard picked the worst of the bunch..totally unwatchable..

    You sound like an old fart.

    But you're right. Every "reality TV" show, regardless of genre, seems to be following EXACTLY the same script, same "stew rooms", candid interviews, back stories...

    I never watched more that 2 minutes of that show. I've always disliked talent shows, they seem like entertainment from the past when people had nothing better to do... like parades.

    In testament to my own good old fart taste, I never liked the Gong Show or Star Search either. But I consented to watching them. I've never watched more than 3 minutes of 'AGT', and 0 with Stern.

    The only good thing to come out of Star Search was a Captain Janks prank call to Ed McMahon.

    LOVED the Gong Show.

    The $1.98 Beauty Show with Rip Taylor was pretty damn good, too.
