    Howard's two year contract with AGT is up and soon we can expect to hear him spin his way out of why he won't be returning, most likely they expected too much of him and he has too much going on in his life. He'll probably try and endear himself to the radio listeners by saying it took too much time away from the radio show. So let's remember the legacy of Howard's AGT experience:

    Howard took over for Piers Morgan on a show that had increased it's ratings the three previous years ending the 2011 season with an all time high for it's finale.

    Howard was given a Super Bowl promo where he appeared without the other judges.

    AGT premieres in 2012 down 30% in the ratings and never recovers

    Howard was named "Loser of the Summer" by Entertainment Weekly for his AGT work

    AGT records the lowest rating in it's 8 year history (1.9) during the late summer of 2012

    AGT has the lowest rated finale of it's history in 2012

    Formerly #1 AGT loses the ratings race to MasterChef and Hell's Kitchen late in the 2012 season

    Against Howard's wishes NBC adds a fourth judge to AGT for 2013 further diminishing Howard's air time.

    Against Howard's wishes for Rosie O'Donnell, Heidi Klum and Mel B are chosen as judges

    AGT 2013 NEVER has a week at #1, a show that two seasons before was #1 EVERY week it was on

    AGT 2013 has weeks when it isn't even in the weekly top ten

    Howard's plan to turn the AGT gig into another network show: DEAD AND BURIED

    Robin, I'm too busy planning my show 2 days a week and managing Beth's burgeoning spokesmodoe career. I just got her a job as the host of "Sniff my dog's ass" on the Animoe Channoe.

    I see Howard's time on AGT as a colossal failure.

    Don't forget he forced them to move the show to New York adding a huge cost to the production of the show, not to mention his ridiculous salary for this bullshit.

    He still made the marbles. He destroyed a #1 hit show but he still collected his marbles.

    He showed up and the show immediately lost 2 million viewers and it never got them back. The series then hit all time lows in viewership numbers and ratings.

    You can't say it is just because the genre is dead. Dancing with the Stars just had a 17 MILLION viewer premier. 25 percent of the audience left and it is all Stern's fault.

    Don't forget Jon Lieberman tweeting they expected 16 million viewers opening night in 2012.

    I don't even think they cracked 12 million the past two years.

    You know that all the people at AGT are going to be very happy to get rid of the dead weight.

    NBC made a deliberate move away from having Stern front and center in it's advertising halfway through the 2012 season,a sure indicator that their marketing surveys were coming back with Stern as a negative.

    Sterns only real talent is extracting marbles from corporations.

    Nemo, you know that he is going to blame everyone else for his failures. It's his Modus Operandi.
