If only there were a way to fast-forward through the "background story" parts of the show...
That's what fast forwarding is for. When they have a 2 hour show I wait about 45 minutes before I start watching it.
Just watch the Wednesday "recap" shows (the ones that are on before the results shows) - you see the entire act (and the post-act comments by the judges), but none of the pre-act background stories.
Interesting. We steer clear of the recaps. I didn't realize they showed the entire act. It would be nice to be able to let go of the remote now and then while watching this show. We didn't mind the stories and first, but now it's just the same thing over and over.
You should catch her on TBS's Deal With It, last week she was a guest and told the guy "I am going to walk by you and you are going to smack my ahhss." He did and his girlfriend was pissed. Amusing.
I could swear that they edit either the judges or some of the acts.. I've been recording these and skimming through them for the VERY small bits of new material (sometimes _vaguely_ humorous host bits, the contestants talking AFTER they performed like on Idol), and since I sometimes have watched the full ep right before, I thought I have noticed edits in the act or judges' segment.. and not just the # to call in part.
Wow, Timber Brown is sooooo good.
One thing that really annoys me is how Howie, and now Howard, really like to point out any little thing that went wrong.
Howie seems to do it to make them feel uncomfortable, for some reason he likes doing that. I am not sure why Howard is doing it, unless he wants to make sure everyone knows he saw it.
Like the little 11 year old girl that sang the country song. She was flawless until the very end where she said she had to swallow and that caused her to miss a beat in the lyrics. But Howie had to grill her on it, and Howard kept saying she lost her breath even though she already explained what happened.
We all heard it, she explained it, so why try to make her feel bad about it? I just don't get it.
I fully believe the judges intentionally do this kind of stuff to manipulate the voting based on who they want to go through. I thought she was great and I was really disappointed she didnt make it through especially compared to the comedian that did. Of course, that was ultimately America's decision but I felt like the comedian fell flat. Howie is always going to side with the comedians. I guess at some point he used to be funny.. not sure when that was except for maybe Bobby's World.
I was okay with last night's picks. They all deserved it except for the comedian. The girl who sang the Cher song was really strong and is one of the front runners if she keeps it up. Timber Brown was pretty good too but I suspect they dog him out at his next performance unless he does something really crazy.
I dont think the comedian makes it any further. He wasnt that funny compared to his other appearances.
I thought Jimmy Rose did great as well and they kind of dogged him out too, especially Howie. I thought Howie's remarks were insulting, especially coming from someone who isnt American.
The NBC press release for next Tuesday's episode says that each judge gets to bring back one wild card act, and it makes it sound like the four automatically go into the semi-finals (which makes sense, as you then have two semi-final rounds of 12).
There is another episode scheduled for next Thursday from 8 to 9, so it's possible that they can bring back more than four and base it on viewers' votes, but I don't see how the can unless they combine the performances with the normal results show on Wednesday.
I'm glad the girl didn't make it through. Even for her age, she's only an okay singer.
She's not even the best child singer in this season's AGT.
Howie is a brilliant comedian. His late 80's standup work was top tier.
If he seems less than stellar now, it's probably because he's suffering from the same "try to appeal to a broad audience" disease that Leno is afflicted with (although, unlike Howie, Leno was always a hack).
i FF thru 2 days shows in 5 minutes . only stopped at the comedian with the blind girl joke. i dont know how anyone could sit thru the rest of this. did on the last segment they really take over 13 minutes to vote out that little girl? really?
american idol isnt that bad
I have never found anything entertaining with Howie.
Here he is from his earlier days:
"Hooray for HowieWould" (1990)
i was a little taken back by Heidi's comments on the comedian - she implied more than once that the AGT winner has to be family friendly in her mind
(i want to take my kids) - - -
so since when is family/kid friendly a criteria?
I noticed this ..... How many families take their kids to vegas to see a show ?
The comedian's tweaks on Heidi ("I'm not family friendly? Her job is to walk around in her underwear!!") were fantastic.
I can not believe that he has ended up on a show with Howard Stern, after what Howard did to Howie on his NYC Radio show decades ago!! Howie's book "Here's the Deal, Don't Touch Me" is a great and fast read!
the comedian is great... he's quick on his feet, his delivery is great, his material is great... he's really funny.
I lasted through a quarter of their new song, and then they sang "I want it that way" which I kind of liked when it came out (guilty pleasure)....so I watched to see if they could reclaim some of their magic, but all I could think about was the old acapella group in 'Pitch Perfect', when they were singing in the lobby at regionals, hocking their merch.... so sad....
