    MISSES:
    *
    HOWARD STERN
    With a $15 million price tag, NBC had to believe that America's Got Talent would do better with Howard Stern at the judges' table. But through August 28, AGT has averaged 11.4 million viewers, down 18.6 percent from last year. While big-name talent-show judges do generate buzz, at some point, viewers may want to see some actual*talent.

    Good to see that it's an article from TV Guide and not just from the local Seattle P.I.

    I'm still waiting for XFactor to start with Britney Spears as a judge. No, I've never seen the show, nor am I a Britney fan, BUT....I have a feeling the ratings are going to go through the roof, against the new fall lineup, not just TV test patterns......she's young, she's relevant, she's unpredictable....everything Howard was supposed to be minus the young part....

    Anyway....I'm dying to see how he will explain it if it happens. The "all tv ratings are down with less viewers" spin will be blown to smithereens. It will be the ultimate revenge for all of his condescending and narcissistic bs he's been heaping on the fans.

    The only change was adding the wig, or how to turn off 20% of your audience for only $15 million a year...

    AGT is a total shit-show I watched until after the Olympics.

    It was fun to see Howard up there "judging" but the story has it right; Eventually you actually want to see some talent.

    To be fair, I was never into any of the "talent" shows, anyways, so I'm not exactly what that show is aimed at.

    It will be hilarious if ratings take off with Britney Spears as a judge.

    The ssight of Britney blowing Stern out of the water in a showbiz roll (that is obviously closer to Stern's main talent than hers) will be priceless. Especially since she will be on air in the midst of fall season while Stern took the easy route in the summer.

    Howard can't fall back on the excuse "I'm still on the #1 show in the timeslot" either because nobody (howard in particular) gave that benefit of the doubt to all the american idol judges whom have gotten panned .

    It's funny. Other than the 15 million, and being able to swing his dick by making the show move cross country this is likely the biggest failure of Stern's career.

    Critics deride and mock him
    long time fans of the pre evolved stern are disgusted
    viewers of the show are changing the channel.

    I remember Nick and Artie at the time of the announcement saying something to the effect of "at first I thought it was a bad move, but after thinking for a moment, Howard will really bring an edge to the show and i'm looking foward to checking out what he brings to prime time"

    Neither of them have mentioned seeing the show since then (likely out of the respect they have for howard)

    ...one of the most photogenic faces ever. recent pics show her looking in really great shape. I agree she will be a draw on the show.

    I wonder if over their next hamptons cocktail session, Howard and Matt trade stories on being the two biggest losers of the summer. A couple of obnoxious twats who forced their will on their respective shows only to see the shows tank. At least Howard has entertained in the past, Matt Lauer has always been an untalented douche.

    Anybody else miss the days when Howard used to bash matt as an untalented former landscaper with a hairpiece who had no business being in showbiz
