    looking at this image got me thinking, howard must be really tormented.

    [​IMG]

    howard's perspective

    pros for being on AGT:
    1) 30 mil over 2 years,
    2) introduce himself to middle america,
    3) make media headlines and stay part of the pop culture,
    4) he watches these shows anyways and enjoys judging

    cons for being on AGT:
    1) too much waiting around,
    2) being forced into a team with lots of waiting brings out how socially awkward he is,
    3) the hours drain him, he is always tired
    4) he has to act silly and goofy which runs contrary to his 90s radio persona
    5) with all the traveling and time, he doesn't have a close eye on his wife
    6) with all the cameras and social media outside of his control, bad pictures are plentiful and circulating.

    so if he could redo it all over again, does he sign on to AGT ?

    i wish these gifs came with some sort of explanation. he is doing some jerking motion and then points, does that mean he wants to give a hand job :dontknow:.

    anyways, i'm also going with his recent statement that he doesn't feel he fits in with the other judges. i think it gets to him.

    He's completely pleased with himself.

    No way he turns it down.

    I do think he wouldn't marry Beth, tho.

    howard tends to be obsessed with his high school experience. he wanted to make a show called "the high school years", he watched dawson creek, and he often fantasized and eventually acted out his fantasy out being "popular" and banging "lots" of women. he was never able to achieve these things through charm, intelligence or athletism, he had to rely on his career success. at sirius he is king and everyone has to kiss his ass thus feeding his constant neediness and narcissism.

    the problem at AGT is that he is part of an ensemble, and they are his coworkers, not his employees. howard expressed feeling left out and feeling awkward, not being able to engage in small talk thus making his waits unbearable . i'm pretty sure AGT brings out how self conscious he is about not fitting in and reminds him of what he was in high school. maybe he regrets putting himself through all this?

    I also think the time apart from his wife is putting a strain on his marriage which is very important to him. he doesn't want to be a 2 time loser and he doesn't want to be left alone. i of course agree with you that he wouldn't marry beth. i would like to think that if howard could go back further, he would make it work with allison, though he is so vapid it is hard to say.

    AGT gives him more exposure than the radio show these days.

    It's the new family friendly Howard. Of course he'd still do AGT.

    He'd still marry Beth (mommy) too.... fucking guy couldn't ever survive on his own.

    Howard's perceptions and reality are two different things. He thinks he's America's Judge and that people tune into that shitfest only to see what he has to say, dismissing the fact that millions more tuned in for Piers Morgan. And his team of yes men back that up. Occasionally reality creeps in, like the Entertainment Weekly loser of the summer article, but he again dismisses it as anti-Semitism or some fringe person with an axe to grind.

    So in his mind he's brought the show to a higher level and would do it again but would want a bigger contract.

    He reminds me a lot of Marlon Brando at this point in his career, except instead of being disgustingly fat and making Dr. Moreau and a bunch of other shitty movies, he's wearing a wig, sporting ridiculous caps and doing AGT. A lot of people sell out, not everyone chooses to stick to their guns and go down fighting like Lenny Bruce or Bill Hicks.

    This is real? Or is Howard shopped in? He looks like a feeble old man, dying.

    the biggest con is that this whole AGT was a giant failure. he lost millions of viewers the 1st year, now it's down further this year. he had the delusion of waltzing onto the show and becoming "america's judge" through his amazing charm and intelligence. instead, AGT let him know how much they wanted him back (his option) by adding an extra judge and pushing howard to the rear. they are basically saying, have fun this season because you ain't coming back. AGT fell for the BS that howard carries millions of rabid fans who will follow him anywhere. reality was that he has 4 rabid fans that he has to cart around with him. even with all that said, i still think he would redo it. mainly because he can't turn away marbles. also because he's desperate to slip into a mainstream TV job and he probably thinks having been on AGT could still help that.

    He'd definitely do it again. If anything, he's probably sorry that he never took some of the other television gigs he was offered. At the time, he was huge and demanded all sorts of power that no one was about to give him. Now he's fitting in where he always longed to be - mainstream Hollywood. He always wanted this even as he was railing against it.

    No way Howie would admit it, but I hope that he regret's it. Remember what Fred said..."It's beneath you Howard". He thought he was really gonna have his fans there for him and we loudly said "FUCK NO" not this time asshole.:finger:
