    Before it started "America is gonna fall in love with you Howard"
    "America will get to see the Howard I know and love"
    Now that the ratings are lower than past years she ain't saying shit about how America will love Howard

    What could they say? There is not a single way they can spin the ratings so that it's a net positive. Jon Hein is a master kiss-ass, and even he can't think of anything to say. Utter fail.

    Yup "The BJ King" can't lather Howard's balls anymore. Which makes me infinitely happy . . .

    maybe I'm missing something, but isn't AGT the top rated show in its time slot?

    ratings are down across the board, so it seems to me AGT is still a winner

    not that that makes me happy, mind you

    AGT is kind of like the economy. It's fine if you have a mere 1-2% GDP growth if you don't have to borrow trillions to acheive it. But if you have to borrow $1.5T a year to get that level of growth, you're SOL.

    AGT spent what, $20M to add Howard to the crew and expected it to pay off in higher ratings to recoup those costs. Apparently they're lower, not higher.

    This is why crappy but cheap reality shows populate the airwaves. Expensive shows like AGT HAVE to get huge ratings or they don't make financial sense. So merely beating a bunch of reruns doesn't cut it. You have to dominate.

    Neither you or I have access to the income statement, but I'm guessing that the top rated summer show made a profit. Would the ratings be the same, or better/worse, without Stern? No way to tell.

    Oh man. Those were the days. And those Michael Anthony backing vocals. Nothing like it.
