    Serious "judge" Howard didn't think it would work with an audience, no mention of being unable to fill a 500 seat venue or the fact that having a live audience would extend the time that the "judges" would have to work.

    MarksFriggin:

    Howard took a call from a guy who thanked him for AGT on Wednesday. He said he did that after the radio show. Howard said he doesn't think he was there. Howard said they dismissed the audience. The caller said he knows but he saw a couple of magic acts and Mariann was there. Howard said they do a thing called Judgment Week that they used to call boot camp. Howard said they have to narrow it down to 47 acts.
    Howard said they were going to have an audience for the first time and he spoke up asking how they were going to do that. Howard said it's all about not having an audience. He said you're supposed to do it in front of a few casting people. He said having people cheering for them isn't going to work. Howard said after 3 acts they sent them off to their trailers and they said it's not working with the audience. Howard said they ended up dismissing them and they did the show without an audience. The caller said that he saw two acts and he thought it was going to go until 7. He said he really didn't care about the acts. He just wanted to see Howard and Mariann. Howard said most people do just want to see him.
    Howard said Thursday and Friday turned into really long days. He said Saturday wasn't too bad though. He said everything worked out in the end. He said it's not an exact science with that stuff. He said they tried something new and it didn't work out. Robin said she likes that they're trying new stuff.
    The caller said that Mariann is a wonderful fan. He said that she must have a happy husband at home. She cooked for her husband before she left for the show. He said they just don't make people like her anymore. Howard thanked him for the call. He said it sounds like he's trying to fuck Mariann.
    Howard had Mariann on the phone and she said that she thought Howard had them cut the audience out. She said they put her right next to Howard and she moved herself 6 rows behind because she didn't want to cramp his style. She said Robin sat in her seat instead. She said that Robin got a lot of hugs and someone serenaded her. Robin said that was an Elvis impersonator. Mariann said she could tell Howard was tired that day. She said it took her 3 hours to get there and 3 to get home. Howard hung up on her as she was in the middle of a sentence about how much she loves him. Howard said Mariann is a sweet woman. He said she carries on like a lunatic though.

    His next idea will be to have no television audience either. AGT is so good it should never be seen by human eyes.

    ...
    The Gong Show is an amateur talent contest franchised by Sony Pictures Television to many countries. It was broadcast on NBC's daytime schedule from June 14, 1976, through July 21, 1978, and in first-run syndication from 1976 to 1980 and 1988 to 1989. The show was produced by Chuck Barris, who also served as host for the NBC run and from 1977 to 1980 in syndication. The show is best remembered for its absurdist humor and style, often awarding participants ridiculous and worthless prizes.

    theyve been experimenting and not quite finding the formula for 38 years. uh huh.

    What a goddamn ingrate. The old cockbite is lucky as hell to still have a fan as loyal as Mariann.
    Fuck.
    Reading this pissed me off.

    I gotta go watch last night's Game of Thrones episode to get happy again.

    I'm guessing Howard did have a big part in the audience being thrown out, NBC could adjust camera shots to make the place seem full but Howard wanted to get out of there as quickly as possible and the audience slowed things down.

    I'm sure those school kids that had tickets for Thursday were way more interested in seeing an old man in a wig do his arms outstretched gesture than Mel B or Heidi.

    The whole thing is on a Rupert Pupkin level of absolute delusion. Scorch is reading that MarksFriggin' article and said "ARE YOU OUT OF YOUR FUCKING MIND!"
