    and I'll be honest

    I tired to give it an honest chance. I"m thinking it can't be that bad, but it's a million times worse than the first few weeks of American Idol which I haven't seen since the first few seasons.

    It's much worse than I expected.

    It's haarrible.

    It's like a really bad version of the Gong Show.

    Howard should be embarrassed to be associated with other drivel than his boring radio show.

    I watched about 15-20 minutes of the first one, and that was enough for me as well. It's fucking embarrassing. The wife sometimes watches it, and asked me the other day why he can't seem to stay off the stage.

    I remember here while back Howard saying, "We're gonna make this show about the talent and not the judges like on American Idol.
    Is he even capable of telling the truth anymore?

    Yeah, it seems like it's all about Howard. He's such a non entity too, it's not about him, but he doesn't get it. It's just stupid in general, they put that 5 year old average tap dancer though because they felt bad about saying no. I can't imagine any fans that use to like the show when it was good enjoying this amateur piece of shit show.

    I was just surprised at how bad it was, the production was bad, they just went into a montage of the shitty acts. It's for old people and stupid people.

    Just another money grab for Howwig, too bad he didn't care enough to wait for a good show to want him.

    Hey ! Everything you said...I've been saying for weeks ..IMPOSSIBLE to watch this stupid show..
    How you got thru 20mins....is a miracle!! It's that bad!
    and Howard can't save this show....
    he's actually horrible at judging..
    all he does is say Scripted contrived opinions like Sharon & Howie.....all positive of course...even when they suck....
    and most of these acts suck....

    it IS like the gong show...only not as funny....
    the best thing about AGT?? is the side show going on with Nick Cannon....he's FUNNY!!

    when Howard goes on stage?? :facepalm: omg...totally embarrassing.....he's so awkward and uncomfortable...
    his baggy saggy pants...
    and those HUGE HUGE HANDS!!!! :facepalm:
    and he's not funny.....Howie is funny.....Howard..NOT funny....

    oh well.....wgas...
    Howard (and Beth) thinks he's the best judge IN THE WORLD :rolleye: He thinks the show is #1 because of HIM???
    it's always been a #1 show....
    so why rain on Howard's parade.....

    thank you
    peace & love

    I was making some tuna salad for a late dinner and decided to turn the tv on. So I wasn't paying that much attention, but that pig act thing was so stupid, and Howard hates fake laughing supposedly, but that's all they were doing.

    I also didn't for a minute think it was gonna be unwatchable. NBC has a lot of nerve putting that shit on, no wonder it's on in the summer when all the other shows that people watch are on hiatus.

    Britain's Got Talent has been cloned all over the world. As you can see from my posted videos. It is a huge hit in every country. The same dumb formula. The hosts and judges are all told to act in a specific way. It is a scripted piece of shit that has circled the globe.

    But that shit should not be acceptable here, we have Hollywood, the world watches all our movies. That's the best that they can do is watch stupid shows, we should do better.

    Honestly, who here is surprised that this show AGT sucks? Did any of you expect it to be good?

    I didn't think it would be that amateur and stupid, but I'm so glad that it is.

    it's worse than any of us could have imagined...we are a cynical bunch of people but even we couldn't have anticipated how embarrassingly bad howard is on TV. he belongs on radio and if he had any sense of honor he would commit hari kari(not sure how to spell it) to save face.
    there is no excuse for this abomination.

    I bailed on AGT when Howard put through the second "rapping grandparent" act. When Howard was going on his rants about AGT and how serious he was taking it, and how he wasn't going to tolerate bullshit...Robin asked the specific question, "So that means were not going to see any "pants on the ground" guys or rapping grannies are we??".....and Howard yelled and screamed and shot the idea down.

    There is only one way acts on AGT should be judged. After the show, go to the audience members (who are all there for free) with a ticket brochure. See how many of those idiots in the audience would actually pay to see ANY of those acts. Im pretty damn sure that the audience wouldn't even buy a 5$ ticket for the rapping granny or the 6 year old tap dancer.

    Agree. I'd never seen an episode of AGT in years past but gave the first episode a try because Howard was on it. As you stated, it was far worse than anyone could have imagined . A complete abomination. Even comparing it to the gong show is an insult to the gong show.

    I do want to watch the first live show at least for a few minutes to see how bad it is.
