    How many viewers did they average last year?

    What's the average this year?

    They moved the show from LA and are paying him a nice sum I'm sure, I'm guessing they thought he'd add about 7 million viewers.

    No way it would even be close to an expectation of 7 million...That would be close to a 70% increase in viewership from an average week.

    First off, network viewership continues to decline each year. It's rare right now for an aging show like AGT ot actually increase viewers.
    In addition, moving the production to NYC very well could have saved them money. Fewer tenured people to pay and I believe overall production costs for shows are less in NYC than California.

    NBC is still making a shitload of money on AGT...

    As agonizing it is to admitt...I believe you hold a good argument in this matter. All Howard has to say is he came won his timeslot. Period. He is winning in the "per capita" sense. :bigcry:

    They thought 5 million for sure. Why would they move the show and pay him all this money if he wasn't going to do at least that?

    With all due respect, I disagree with your assessment. I don't think they expected any of us (past or the rare present Stern fans) to watch. They wanted to titillate the Hausfrau demographic with Howard the Bad Boy Shock Jock.

    NBC was expecting 16-20 million viewers. Wiggy has no audience left. His audience pissed on him. NBC fires him at the end of the season but it will be spun as if it was wiggy' choice.

    I'm sure NBC thought they were adding Howard's millions of fans to the existing AGT fanbase, which should have resulted in an increase even if overall network viewership declined. Instead they found out what we already knew - Howard doesn't have many fans left and he's not King of anything anymore.

    Yes, it averaged 11.02 million in 2010, 11.8 million in 2011.

    They also advertised the shit out of the show from the Super Bowl commercial in February to saturation ads on everything from billboards to taxis before the premiere, the network absolutely had expectations that haven't been met by performance. Someone posted here that Howard's not even featured in the latest TV ad, look for his taking over of the show to be scaled back come live show time.

    Do you guys think Howard will realize his mistake and start trying to win back the fans and put effort into his show?
