    So will our resident hyper-analyst upgrade from 'it's an aging show' to Howard's brand is hitting its stride?

    One week is not momentum :) That said, it's beginning its "no competition" run isn't it? I would hope it gets higher ratings than when it had popular first-run shows to compete with.

    Even if everyone in the country watched...
    it's still a really embarrassingly shitty show.

    So that's why SFN numbers seemed high according to Ivan. Makes perfect sence now.

    The first really good ratings for the show. I still don't think it is what NBC was hoping for when they added Stern, but certainly not the ratings disappointment most the first month was. I guess broadcasting the show virtually every night is working to force people to give it a try.

    Howard or no Howard, I never got the popularity of a talent show other than the original Gong Show which goofed on talent shows. But apparently, people like the show. As for Howard's involvement, I find it embarrassing how much he has sold out to become Middle America friendly.

    Wait, so now it's DOWN 25% from last year? Reading these ratings tea leaves is like a roller coaster around here.

    No doubt, I think NBC is disappointed with the ratings to date...although the show is a success for a cheaply produced show, I'm sure they were Hoping Howard would bring in a lot more viewers, especially the 18-49 demographic, than the show has to date...My guess, is the 7.8 rating the show received last night is probably the highest it will receive all season...

    Good ratings, but that's what NBC must have expected now that AGT isn't going against popular shows like it did initially. They could probably have done this with Piers Morgan still judging.

    June 7th last year got a 7.1/12 with 12.93 million viewers. So it is fairly comprehible to last year. The thing is that last year, I think the show was on at 9PM and this year it is at 8PM.
