    I want to hear Wiggy McSlipperyChin explain this one. that i would tune in for. If Queeny has 9 million loyal fans there would be no need to do this.

    I don't think it means anything. I used to go to tapings for sitcoms and there were always two or three groups in the audience who were there for fundraising. So, unfortunately, it doesn't really say anything about the state of AGT- It's just something the studios do.

    If it ever is brought up, my guess is he will take credit and say it's just another way for him to give back to his fans (Mariann, Bobo and the other asskissers). "Name one other broadcaster who does that for his fans! Who cares if I only work 2 days in July!"

    no, it isn't something studios do. it's something DESPERATE studios do....they troll around for people who are interested... the fact that they're paying people is pretty pathetic.


    they're even going to pay for transportation. very desperate.

    Really? So your saying that even if there is enough demand for tix that it could fill the venue they still offer to pay people to attend? Why didn't they do it San Antonio last year when the place was empty? Seems like an odd business model to pay people to attend when they don't have to. Additionally, i post here a lot and never really see comments from you but you were certainly shot out of a cannon on this one...

    How many live performances would NSAL staffers have to attend until they raised the $7 million for their cat playground?

    AGT is now a pyramid scheme. If you bring 5 people and those people bring 5 people you get $10.

    What's so hard to believe about a corporation paying people to do what they'd happily do for nothing?
    Makes perfect business sense.
    That's exactly how I run my business. I wait for interested clients to come an long and then pay them to use me. Ya.
