    "The news that Howard Stern, Heidi Klum, Mel B, and Howie Mandel were returning as judges on NBC's summer competition series America's Got Talent came complete with carefully crafted quotes from the network’s reality-TV chief and the show’s exec producer. The announcement was greeted with — yawns, Stern having made sure he was the headline by announcing his return to the show 24 hours ahead of the NBC announcement."

    Last summer, the eighth season of “America’s Got Talent” averaged a 3.3 rating, 10 share in adults 18-49 and 12.0 million viewers overall, according to Nielsen Media Research, making “Talent” the #1 summer reality series in adults 18-49 and total viewers. It’s the eighth year in a row “Talent” has been the #1 summer reality series in total viewers.

    :artiejj:

    For a lot less than what they paid the writer of that NBC PR piece I could have written that off the top of my head. Like anyone didn't know that would be the spin.

    #1 rated summer time prime-time reality show
    :facepalm:

    Any radio program not on 4 times a week, 45 weeks a year, at minimum, is retirement home crap.

    Stern's been on the Old Man Retirement Plan since the Artie Chair debacle and the lawsuit fell through.

    What ever happened to being "all in" and "going all out" with your "first love" the radio program?

    It's not even close. According to Wikipedia, using numbers from TV by the numbers, the best it did was a 3.1 for the season premier. The next two weeks were 3.0. After that it never went into the 3's and hit a low of 1.3 three times. It had more than 11 million total viewers only 6 times with the highest being 11.75 mil. It's kind of hard to average 12 million when it didn't hit 12 million once.

    Of course Howard announced that he was coming back before NBC announced the other judges were coming back too. I bet that was one of his requirements for returning.

    Howard wants to spin it that getting him back was NBC's top priority and the show is built around him and he allowed them to bring back the other judges.
