    I remember listening to both Howard, Artie, and Gary prattle on just a few years ago about how Howard was an "A" list celebrity. If the "A" list includes folks like Jack Nicholson, Clint Eastwood, Brad Pitt, Meryl Streep, and Robert DeNiro, Howard hasn't been that well known since the late 1990s.

    I'm not queer enough to watch AGT, but it occurred to me that by joining that show, Howard is now placing himself on the level of the other judges (past and present.) I had to go to Wikipedia to look up info on AGT to get the background, but here it is:
    1) Sharon Osbourn--MTV reality-tv star, co-host of a poorly rated talk show, and wife of Ozzy--B-List at best; probably a C-list celeb
    2) Howie Mandel--Famous comedian 30 years ago. Part of a hit TV series 25 years ago. Recent host of a game show. C-list at best
    3) David Hasselhoff--Star of 2 hit series--30 and 20 years ago; known drunk. D-lister
    4) Piers Morgan--CNN host. B-list at best.
    5) Brandy Norwood--No idea who this broad is/was. She lasted one season on AGT. I'd put her on the "F" list

    Even the AGT hosts are fucking jokes...Regis Philbin, Jerry Springer, and Nick Cannon. I just find it kind of sad that Howard is whoring himself to gain acceptance from a middle-America audience that he honestly seems to have nothing but contempt for.

    It's a C list show. If you are happening they ask you to join American Idol. This is a high school talent contest.

    On second thoughts, considering Howard has zero recognition internationally, i'll change my grade to a C+

    definately an A lister moneywise.
    however, he's cheapened himself and his brand by going on AGT. he went against the advice of fuckwald who has very ably managed howard's career (fred and hein who are fairly intelligent thought it was a bad move.
    i think at this point in his life he takes council with beff...and only beff(it should be fun when this little adventure is a major fail).

    Although I have no idea what year that stupid Howie Mandel video is from, it sure looks like his hair was thinning back then. Didn't he tell Howard that he just shaved his head because he wanted to--not because he was losing it?

    Brandy was a really popular singer and actress, but so were the other panelists. What they all share is that they WERE popular and are each washed up to some degree. Same with American Idol

    Why make a video about dancing the Watusi and then not even do the dance? His leg, hip, & arm movements don't match the dance. He might as well have been claiming to do the "Batusi" and not do the finger thing in front of the eyes. Video is apparently from his 1986 album and tour (as is obvious from the video, he was fighting Weird Al Yankovic for market share and losing badly).

    The original Watusi became big in 1962. Many of us weren't even born, yet, although Howie Mandel would have been 6 or 7 yrs old at the time and probably did learn the Watusi back then. Too bad his memory is as bad as Howchie's.

    I think Mandel wore a wig before he shaved it.

    There are very few people in the entertainment business who can top Howard's wealth. Unless you are Spielberg, Lucas, Geffen or Winfrey. Remeber, you would have make three movies a year and be in the handful of actors who get paid $25 million a movie to just stay even with Howard. Does it make him an A-lister, no. But money talks and bullshit walks.

    I agree. Only an a-lister in pay. He's about as much an a-list celebrity as Rush Limbaugh.

    It's a summer show.

    When do A-listers star in summer shows?

    We all know Howchie has been obsessed with being on one of these "judging shows" for the last couple of years. I'm guessing that he sees it as a easy way to get back in the public eye on a national level since that's not going to happen through radio anymore and to keep the money flowing. I'm surprised Howard would cheapen his legacy by appearing on AGT which is clearly a hackneyed piece of shit.
