    He was not happy yesterday when he found out the show was up against Dancing with the Stars. I think he felt they should have waited to start the show until after DwtS ended.

    But I can only imagine NBC felt confident releasing the show 2 weeks early during sweeps because they had the Howard Stern juggernaut on the payroll.

    But Howard has shot his wad with his 6 months of AGT commercials on his radio show. He's brought everything to the table he's going to do in reference to his fan base and notoriety.

    The suits at NBC have to be very disappointed.

    Im sure once a few of the other shows wrap up, AGT's rating will go back up. I liked it.. Im glad its back. I like Howard Stern.. I just thought he was a little overbearing but I guess when you're replacing Piers Morgan, thats to be expected.

    I don't know if they will go up, but this is the same number AGT pulled last year in it's second week. Add in that this year was going against season finales for many shows and DWTS vs. all repeats and basketball last year.

    Howard or maybe Jon Hein did say they moved the show because they had confidence. Howard was still annoyed because he was hoping it would start after the other shows were done.

    Howard said just today he didn't expect the ratings to be amazing. That it will take word of mouth from people that Howard isn't as bad as everyone thinks he is. If the ratings are still lower in a couple months, then the NBC folks should start to worry.

    It will be interesting to hear what he has to say tomorrow.

    I am pretty sure the audition contract everybody has to sign says that you need to be either a citizen or have a green card. It is possible that they might let contestants on the show without either, but with a work visa (I know So You Think You Can Dance, which promotes its winner as "America's Favorite Dancer," does, and I think American Idol does as well).

    I liked the show with Howard. Haven't watched much of it before. But is this how the preliminary judging goes, they either have a total goof out there that they all unanimously hate, or something phenomenal which they all love? I would like to see more debating between the judges.

    They go around the country to initially see acts and then send them on to Las Vegas. 140 acts go to Vegas and while there, they narrow it down to 48. According to Howard, Vegas was very hard and there was a lot of debate on what 48 acts to send to New York for the live shows.

    Pretty much said that they were first in 18-49 year olds, but he wishes they were first overall. He says they will of course be first in 2 weeks when Dancing with the Stars is done. He also hopes that the show will gain audience as people hear about it.

    NBC put the show on now instead of 2 weeks from now because they had nothing else to put on. It is sweeps and they need to put something on that will get ratings.

    He definitely isn't talking about the show like he did yesterday. All they did yesterday was talk about the show. They also played audio from talk shows that were kind of reviewing the show. They aren't doing that today. Heck, he didn't even mention AGT this morning until like 30-40 minutes into the show it seemed.

    It sounds like Stern behaved himself so the prudes who wanted this boycotted before watching a single episode are made to look like the morons they actually are.

    That was a well made prosthetic on that bulldog. When the mouth started moving, I was like, WTF? :eek:

    It took pausing on a close up of the dog for me to see it.

    It always appeared to me that Howard never brings up what he thinks people want to hear first thing. He had to know that we wanted to hear him review the show's ratings now that they are out, but instead went to the Scott comedy show garbage. Even after a long vacation when he comes back he seems to go into trivial junk, even if a friend of the show died or got into trouble while he was away. Just a quirk of his I noticed after all these years.

    I think it's funny how every time a dance troupe comes out Howard says something about how he doesn't like the dance routines and he fast-forwards through them at home, but then says "You guys were great, I'm voting you through" he has done that like 5 times now.

    That street dancer was amazing. It was like I was watching him float on air....although I actually liked the dancing part more than the contortionist part

    He mentioned on his show that you don't see the other 200 that he buzzed after 3 seconds.

    I never watched this show before and only watched because of Howard. Half the acts they sent on to Las Vegas I could give 2 spits about. I'll give it a couple more episode to see if I can get into it. I'm sure the auditions are similar to AI in that there are more absurd acts shown than actual talent.
