    It's all about Howard:

    He didn't want a fourth judge to take air time and attention away from him.
    The new judges are younger that Howard and will point out his lack of revelance and understanding of the youth market.
    There is no promotion or build-up from NBC like last year and any promo that's coming will focus on the new hires.
    The New Orleans auditions were a disaster, Howard was booed.

    And most importantly -

    He wants to distance himself from this year so that if it tanks he can say it's because they didn't do things the way he suggested.

    On the wrap up show, Gary And Hein suggest that it is a way of Stern punishing the fans for complaining about too much AGT talk last year. HILARIOUS

    Howard knows everyone hates AGT talk.
    So he will not talk about it only about 30 minutes during each show....:jj:

    BTW.....Talking about AGT now does nothing for AGT ratings.

    You don't think that the addition of a former German model and someone named Scary that had a hit in 1995 is going to rocket this show back to the top?

    Well said Beth Sucks. We all know that if things were going his way, there would be no stopping him.

    I read somewhere yesterday, may have been EW, that even American Idol ratings are tanking. This certainly does not bode well for Stern's lil dog and pony show.

    For once, I actually do wish the power of twitter would kick in. i wish HE DID have as many fans as he says he does, and they would all politely tweet him their appreciation for keeping AGT talk off the Stern Radio Show.

    AGT could be the first one of these shows to get the axe. Since it's a summer show its ad rates aren't as high as Idol, The Voice etc so it's revenue is handicapped. Throw in the cost of Howard and the other judges, the costs of moving it to NYC and the lower ratings and all of a sudden this cash cow isn't producing like it used to. The producers were definitely making more money with Brandy, David Hasselhoff, Jerry Springer and higher ratings.

    a temporal anomaly appears and causes a rupture in the fabric of time and space and suddenly it's 1997 again?

    During the Howie Mandel interview it was revealed that Howard's original deal on AGT was for 2 years...in other words he had no choice.;)

    He's gotta be pissed he had no say in the other judges. Now less face time, I see him going up on stage even more this season

    Robin asked Howard if Apatoe apologized... Howard said "NO, I don't think so"


    Apologize for saying he don't like the AGT talk?
