    We may need a bigger internet, but I love this gem

    Howard expects us to believe that agt ratings are in the shitter because NBC continues to switch timeslots and days making it difficult for the viewers to find... Yet... Wants you to believe that his show is the hottest thing on satellite radio, garnering every one of the 23 million listeners, while executing the most secretive and elusive schedule in history. The answer to the famous question "why do they listen" is now "I want to know if The show live tomorrow, or if it's yet another (white)washed up rerun"

    It's habitual until you have enough marbles not to care anymore.

    Howard invented repeats and re-re-packaged content.....see the past 2 weeks of AGT.
    The Summer 'Hit' has been on vacation the past 2 weeks.

    I like how he goes back and forth about the reason for doing GayGT. He is looking for the next great entertainer or I am doing it as a goof.

    Does he still call himself America's Judge?

    I haven't heard the "America's Judge" sobriquet in quite some time. I'm thinking that it got retired shortly after the first season.

    They all (Buchwald & Co., no doubt) saw how silly and potentially embarrassing it was. AGT is an embarrassment and Howard is even further humiliated for trying to resuscitate his career with a 3rd rate reality show.

    I think they've (wisely) put :"America's Judge" in the trash can. (did I just do an unintended metaphor???)

    The funniest thing is that the bit with his mom had to be brought on by the complaints of NBC about the ratings. These failures to bring ratings are being watched by all the entertainment executives. Wiggy, welcome to pay cut country! Stern68, please comment on this when you return to work on Monday.

    You know, as I recall, ALL of Howard's team (including Buchwald) advised him against doing AGT. They saw it for the (career killing) low-rent, imbecilic menagerie that it is. I know Howard was a little seduced by the money and his ego will drive him to any spotlight, no matter how dim; but my guess is that in the end, it was Beth who pushed him into that show. More red carpets for her.

    DK he admitted as much especially renewing for this season. Wiggy said he wasn't sure what to do but Beth really wanted him to do it because she though he was great at it.

    Beth is so selfish and so out of touch with what made him famous. When you combine that with what a pussy whipped fool Wiggy has become it all makes sense.

    Remember when Beef was the ONLY spouse/partner who walked the red carpet with Wiggy AND an interviewer just decided to ask them about their amazing love off the cuff?:cwl:

    It must be SO hard to have to maintain that facade all the time. Don't they ever get tired of performing? Maybe just let their hair down (so to speak..) and be themselves?

    To have all that wealth and still to be so far from, simple, happy.
