Be there or be fag
I predict the highest ratings ever for AGT this year.
Wiggy might off himself.
@Benjamen can you find the ratings for Howard's debut on that show so we can do a comparison???
I guess im a fag then, I dont like talent shows.
AGT's ratings (and how they compare to past seasons) is @puncher's area of expertise. Puncher, will you continue your analysis with post-Stern AGT?
And any word on how Howard's post-AGT opportunity exploring is going?
Never forget Jon Lieberman's prediction:
Howard's voice cracked when he told Jimmy Kimmel's audience that he had to quit AGT:
Gee I wonde why he has three weeks of vacation now and is AWOL from Beth's Instagram
He may go into hiding if AGT gets big ratings
What a fucking pile of BS
Howard loved being on AGT. Simon torpedoed his dream job. And doesn't Ralph already get full time salary and benefits to do Howard's hair.
Yeah Netflix board couldn't wait to pay Howard $100 million per year to do a lame version of Charlie Rose
I am excited for this. I cant wait to see how much better the first night's ratings are.
Wonder if Howard will address this Wednesday morning if Marianne doesnt call in about it?
My goal for Wednesday is to get #HowardIsSimonsBitch trending on twitter.
Howard is off this week and might take the following week off. Even if the ratings aren't significantly better just the quality of the show improving may be the breaking point
Has NBC put a big promotional push behind this and I've just missed it? If it weren't for this board, I wouldn't know that the season was about to start or that Simon was a judge this season.
Game Show network was plugging it relentlessly last night. I think I saw another commercial on one of the oddball sideband channels.
He’s back: Simon Cowell joins ‘America’s Got Talent’ judging team
By Rick Bentley The Fresno Bee (TNS)
It’s out with Howard Stern and in with Simon Cowell when “America’s Got Talent” returns for its 11th season to the NBC lineup on May 31. He will join Howie Mandel, Mel B and Heidi Klum as the judges who will make or break dreams.
Cowell said he has wanted to be on the show for years.
“I came down to watch the show being filmed. I was sitting in the audience, thinking they are very good, the panel. But I was kind of hoping one of them would hurt themselves. Not badly, but enough that I would have to go ‘I’m here,’ because it really, really looked so much fun, this show,” Cowell told journalists gathered for a summer press day by the network.
He was offered the job five years ago, but he was so tied up with other talent competition programs he couldn’t take it on.
This feels like perfect timing. Cowell’s always been a perfect fit for that judging spot. Both Piers Morgan and Howard Stern brought an honesty to their critiques that gave the show some bite. The other three judges are nice, but these shows need a tough judge.
“American Idol” wouldn’t have gone into a second season without Cowell as one of the original judges.
Look for Cowell to have plenty opportunities to dish out his acerbic brand of honesty. They filmed an episode where the talent was so bad Cowell told the other judges that he had lost the will to live.
But the good acts outweigh the bad.
“When it’s good, of course it’s worth it. Because when you’re there, when you discover a star or you think that could become a star, you’ll never forget that moment, never forget that audition,” Cowell says.
The good acts don’t see the kind of verbal salvos that have earned Cowell a reputation as a tough guy. Even his fellow judges were a little concerned about him.
Mandel knew the kind of straight-forward approach Cowell has taken on every show, and he didn’t know how that would hit with the “America’s Got Talent” judging panel. He says it became apparent quickly that he Cowell was a perfect fit.
“It is more fun than we have ever had in the history of this show,” Mandel says.
Remember, NBC was expecting ratings that would be competitive with the finales of all the regular-season shows and premiered Howard's AGT debut during May Sweeps Week - the only time they ever did that. They must have been totally shocked at how badly it tanked.
I wish I was a Nielsen rater. I wouldn't watch it but id make sure my TV was on it while I was out and DVRd it every week all year.
What a whiney old queen, christ. And the "Here I am, Fartman" shit. He's right, that name embodies what he is. A thief.
