Discussion in 'The Howard Stern Show' started by FSFN, Mar 7, 2013.
I've read a few tweets that the last day of auditions were cancelled, anybody have any info on it?
They found so many stars they don't need anymore?
Major storm hitting the area
a storm of talented dog acts!
Here's a post about it:

I live in New Orleans. Not sure if it's been mentioned anywhere here yet, but the third day of AGT tapings was cancelled last week, and they are still trying to find people to to take the FREE tickets to the other two days of tapings. They have been sending multiple emails that past few days.
It's being held at a small arena that's on the edge of the city at UNO. 10,000 seats. Probably a lot less when you factor in they have to build a whole stage, backstage, camera rigs, whatever.
There's not that much to do here outside of sports/parade season, so I'm surprised they can't get asses in the seats between all the tourists and college kids, but AGT is terrible so I am also not surprised. Also strange that they would choose to tape Mon-Wed (show days!), when it would be a lot easier to find people on a weekend.
Whatever delusions anyone still has about Howard and his level of fame/influence, this is the reality. Barely able to draw ~8000 live bodies to come watch a free talent show on NBC.
Howard had to make sure he got home so he could prepare for Monday's show.
maybe Beth found his secret marbles stash and it set off an alarm and he had to get back to the city
Also, an update from freddiequell:
I posted that. And for a quick update, they were still sending out desperate emails as of last night for today's tapings. Also said in the emails that even if you show up A HALF HOUR LATE you are still guaranteed seats , that there are still tickets available, all tickets have a guaranteed seat, etc.
I might go to one of the tapings today if I don't get called in to work. Will update if it's a total shit show or if I get a good glimpse of the wig in action.
This. If they were worried about a storm Mel B. wouldn't have been partying on Bourbon Street.
the storm was here, in the norheast, and ronnie tweeted that they were out ahead of the storm as a way to explain why he was home a day early.
Sounds like they cancelled it due to lack of interest well before the storm was forecast. I'm sure Wiggy will use the weather as an excuse or find some other way to spin it.
Wow. First round of auditions and already shrouded in the stench of desperation. Go Howard.
Howard...even in his current state...is way above this AGT BS.
i disagree. He is actually bringing AGT down, IMO. he is awful on TV.
They canceled it so Howard could rush back to NY so he can come up with excuses why he will turn down the 12:30 late night job that he has never and will never be offered.
Howard will be doing shows next week, the following week he has auditions in San Antonio on Wed March 20th.
He will probably work Monday, maybe Tuesday.
Howard is so clueless and delusional he thinks AGT is an important show and it's a big honor to be chosen as a judge. He keeps saying that despite the fact that guests on his show laugh in his face when he mentions it and the critic he always quotes and agrees with (Bob Lefetz) says AGT is horrible and Howard made a mistake by doing it.
I'll play Devil's advocate. Maybe, they didn't get enough people who wanted to audition and they didn't need a 3rd day? They could always fake the crowd shots to make it look like Thunderdome if they had to.
