    This reality TV craze is due to come to an end sooner than later. Older folks (like me) remember the late 1970s/early 1980s when crap TV like "That's Incredible" and "Real People" were big hits. They fell off the radar once the networks decided to switch back to sitcoms and dramas.

    American Idol is falling in the ratings, and I bet the second and third tier shows (like AGT) are going to fight an uphill battle. Stern might generate some interest for awhile, but I bet it will have problems.

    All that said, how long will it take before Howard has some beef with the show's producers or the network and goes off and files a lawsuit? For wagering purposes I'll peg it at 24 months. The betting is now open.

    starting from when? now, or when taping starts?

    i am going to say 7 months from now is when we will first hear the word "sue" from him regarding AGT/NBC

    Isn't Stern the guy who used to always criticize actors for starting bands, writing books, etc... I seem to recall his saying that they should just stick to what they are good at. The self-proclaimed king of all media has an ego that must take a full staff to carry.

    I wish Howard had signed on to do Celebrity Apprentice.
    I'd love seeing him hated by his fellow celebs and inevitably getting fired.

    This AGT thing is doomed.
    Boycotts ahoy.

    Starting from today. 24 months is the over/under line--7 months from now seems pretty aggressive, but if boycotts do occur and they remove him then we'll start calling you Kreskin.

    You know that everything he says or does does not apply to him, Right?

    This is why he would make the worst possible friend in the world and that is why we never hear about his friends from the old days. He did not have any.

    Howard's already claiming he was misled about the number of hours he'll be working, I doubt if he'll make it through the whole season

    After the first season, when he decides he wants a piece of the back end on the Vegas show.

    Agree with one season.....the flying back in forth in a private jet is too taxing

    I highly doubt that Howard would ever have a problem with NBC.

    If the ratings plummet you can count on Howard to point the finger at NBC, if its a success, you already know that he'll take full credit.

    Lawsuit will be "lighting wasn't correct, correct side of my face wasn't shot, AGT didn't promote to insure increase viewer numbers, AGT didn't moderate forums..too much Howchie and Beth bashing"....blah blah blah
