    Seeing that Howard's premier on AGT is coming up fairly soon, I'm curious what you guys think will be convincing "evidence" on whether he's a success or failure on the show. Some obvious metrics that come to mind are things like ratings, but you know he's going to spin those even if they're not great. Here's Wikipedia's write up on AGT's ratings (broken down by each season):
    LINK

    Besides ratings, one other way of assessing Howard's success would be if he were to get hired for commercials; that would indicate he was successful in shedding his shock-jock image, or at least signal that he was mainstream and relevant.

    So the feedback I'm looking for from you guys isn't just your opinion on that he's going to fail (or succeed) but what criteria you're going to use to determine that once AGT starts airing.

    holy shit! i never ever even thought of that, but you are right. If these old biddies love Wiggy as much as he claims they do, then commercials are sure to happen. :eek:

    Thank god, as Nemo always says, Howard Alan Stern is a serial liar and not a word of what he says about people loving him is true.

    Every time I think about Howard Stern on America's Got Talent it reminds me of Jackie on Star Search.

    I just assumed the metrics used would be Howard's endlessly telling anyone who listens to the show the two to three days he is on that the show is a huge success and never been better? Why use slly things like Neilsen ratings when we can judge success by the most honest man in entertainment?

    Another way to gauge his success will be if he's hired to do another network TV show (on his own--not part of a panel), however that won't be something that can be ascertained within the first couple of months. I have no doubt that Stern could easily land a gig on some shit network like Spike, but a network show (that airs before midnight) would represent a major coup.

    intensity would be near impossible to measure.

    I gotta start saving photos here. Nemo has posted some rear shots of The Wig, and you can clearly see that Howard's wig is a black hole; it has a gravitational force so great not even photons can escape.

    so i'm going with size.
