    I was pacing around the room. If the vote truly was that close, they need to change the procedure up again. In no rational world would Drew come close to sniffing the final 500 let alone be runner-up.

    Well, with that lame finale behind us, we can now start predicting the new host to replace Howard Stern for Season 11. My prediction is for Penn Jillette.

    It makes me suspect the show is fixed.

    We end up with a ventriloquist that's about 10% as good as Terry Fator. His runner-up is the least funniest comedian of the entire series.

    The only one in the finale who was truly a unique deserving act was the regurgitator, albeit he was a professional act who has been a contestant on multiple talent series.

    That would be a worthy addition.

    Has anyone said why Stern left?

    I did not vote for Drew. His disability is distracting after a few minutes. Creatively his jokes were great and how quickly he had comebacks showed that he does have talent. All in all I have to agree with other posters that this year's final contestants were flawed in their later presentations. Compare this year to last and it is like comparing this year to Penn and Teller.

    He has very little material at his disposal. He can barely get through 90 seconds (20 of which are him laughing at himself) how in the world would he be able to do 90 minute daily shows? The phone number joke you could see coming a mile away and then he stayed on it for a minute. Painful.

    I thought I read he was bored. I know he's pining for Simon to get back on TV in the US but, I agree, Penn would be a great call. It's gotta be someone with NBC ties and he has them.

    The problem this year was, they didn't go from a final 10/12 to a final 4-6 like they normally do. The votes were spread out. Nick said that Paul and Drew were separated by "less than 1%", but that probably just means that Paul got, say, 15% while Drew got 14%.

    At least they didn't say, "The top two are Paul and Drew - and the Snapple Instant Vote will determine the winner! Sorry, western half of the country, but we don't care about you."

    Speaking of which, now that Stern is gone, does the show move the live shows back out west next season? IIRC, the only reason they moved to New York was because Stern pretty much demanded it, so he wouldn't have to fly back and forth to do this and his radio show.

    I think that if Piers Morgan wants it, the job is his. Didn't he leave because he got a (short-lived) show on CNN? Also, since it's Simon Cowell's production company, he could do it, although he already does Britain's Got Talent. It has to be somebody who's willing to play the villain; otherwise, it's American Juniors all over again.

    I just had a harrowing thought: Donald Trump. Of course, this assumes he (a) doesn't get the Republican nomination, and (b) doesn't go back on his pledge not to run as an independent. (Then again, neither of those is a problem if the judges don't show up for auditions until after the election.)

    Who are we kidding? It's going to be Neil Patrick Harris...

    After his show flops he'll be needing a job.

    There seems to be some real animosity between him and NBC, and even the other cast members on AGT. Of course, that could all change if there's money to be made...

    Did Howard Stern play the villain? It didn't seem so to me. Sure, he had a negative criticism a few times, but nothing like that Piers had done on AGT, or Simon had done on Idol.

    I don't watch the breadth of reality TV that I used to, but it seems like there's been a real trend away from the negativity that was present on the earlier seasons of AGT, Idol, etc.

    Howard was the "bad guy" judge. But really was a fairly tame "bad guy".


    As good as NPH is, they need a "bad guy". Even a tame one. NPH isn't that guy.

    Yeah... While he was the only one that tried to play the bad guy, he really didn't come off as a bad guy to me...

    In my opinion, he was "the voice of reason" judge... :)

    Planet Hollywood has started advertising the AGT live show, and according to the ads, the only acts there will be Paul Zerdin, Drew Lynch, and Piff the Magic Dragon. Somehow, I don't think those will be the only acts - usually, there's a host as well - but those are the only ones advertised.
