    Maybe it was already mentioned, but didnt Howard said there were some pre auditions or whatever you call them, before they let people go through on the show?

    Or do they let those horrible acts through on purpose for variation?

    Yes. They need some awful acts mixed in because they're funny and also so the audience gets to experience the "weeding out" process.

    Yeah I know, but thats kinda unfair to mediocre acts at those pre auditions. But yeah the whole show is scripted from start to end.

    Holy shit. I thought this was a rhetorical question. You actually want answers?

    The acts are so fucking bad that what we see is the frankly the best of the best

    That is how watered-down and just downright terrible the talent is this year

    every show does it, even idol.

    you think howard is going to sit through 10,000 acts?

    that would take 2 years.

    and you cant have 100% decent to stellar acts.

    that would be boring.

    and all reality tv is scripted, from the bachelorette to survivor.

    agt probably shot 2000 hours of footage.

    of course they're gonna hack that shit up and turn it into something watchable.

    It is a rhetorical question, it was just something that was on my mind while watching AGT.

    with idol, you have to go through three or four levels of evaluation before you get in front of a judge

    Even the acts know agt is a piece of dogshit with Howard on it. I don't blame them. Who wants to sit there and be judged by a has been with a huge ego and a career-seeking wife?

    Yeah, its embarrassing when Howard starts talking about his career and how great he is on AGT. The show is about searching new talent.

    I always thought he was just doing that as an act, but maybe he is really that delusional if he even does that on AGT. Or he is keeping the fake persona up.

    I don't even think the judges decide who goes through. It's all scripted. Howie says no, Howard says no and they leave it up to Sharon. They are all working from a script. The producers decide who goes to Las Vegas. Until the viewers at home vote it's all rigged.

    I made it halfway through the first show and it seemed to me that some of the "talent" were shills. I just don't believe that they'd let random people approach the judges like some of them did. I'm sure there's security to prevent the acts from getting anywhere near that table.

    The homo-erotic sax player is an example. He could have bashed Howard over the head with his instrument. Maybe he did after the show. :c :c

    Good points, but I might challenge that is has been turned into "something watchable".

    Are we even sure the acts actually know who Howard is? In the 20 or 30 minutes I've watched the show, I wouldn't swear to it.
