    Wtf? Ponderous man. Just ponderous.

    No wonder NBC is in 6th place out of 5 networks.

    I think they're re-running them on Oxygen as well as NBC. They really want this thing with Howard to work, huh?

    They are pushing this AGT dog shit with all their network might, but I predict AGT will fail. If not, I will move to Canada, and renounce my USA citizenship.

    NBC is trying to cram Hamptons Howie down our throat, just like Howie tries to cram Beff0 down our throats . Sounds familiar..

    The network TV audience has the brain of a moron. If AGT is successful, it is a sad commentary on the network TV watching audience. But I would not be surprised.

    The result: everyone gets a chance to see how lame it is and decide not to watch it sooner.

    Between Leno and AGFuckingT, it's no surprise why people should completely disregard the tastes of "flyover country".

    The show is also very cheap to produce and, unless things have recently changed, they don't pay anyone residual money. It basically costs them nothing to throw it up there and draw some more ad revenue.

    I tried to watch AGT the other day, but it made me grind my teeth. My dentist says I should avoid doing that.

    I'm not familiar with one single show on network TV that is considered a "must watch." Not that I give a shit about such stuff, but at least I've heard that Game of Thrones is awesome (wouldn't know, haven't seen it). I love Breaking Bad and The Walking Dead--both those are discussed ad-nauseum.

    When network TV started embracing "reality TV" I think it went off course. Sure, they got people to tune in for American Idol, but anybody with half a fucking brain flipped over to a cable channel and never looked back.

    Older guys will probably remember the early 1980s when network TV went through a somewhat similar period...their primetime lineups were littered with "reality" shows like "That's Incredible," "Real People," and "Star Search." Those shitty shows were cheap to produce and got ratings. They were finally marginalized/cancelled when sitcoms and dramas started to make inroads again. I think we're seeing reality TV bottoming out on network TV (there will always be a place for it on cable).

    it's truly awful (but it does provide the photoshoppers with endless material)

    They have to do something to try to recoup all the millions that they paid Howard.

    It seems pretty clear that NBC is hoping that repeat viewings will win back viewers lost and gain new viewers because ratings are down. It is a gamble because there is a chance of AGT burnout and scaring off viewers who don't give a shit about AGT. I can't see them doing this for long just because it is not a smart long term strategy or they will definitely see a law of diminishing returns.

    People watch Glee for fucks sake. There's not that much screening.
