    they do that at least once a season - hey producers
    - we've watched your show - we know that one already.

    That's not good but I wouldn't read TOO much into it. Everything was down, and let's be honest, the talent isn't very good this year. Besides, it was just a results show. It's basically a waste of time when you can just read the next day to find out who went on. They are still doing pretty well on the performance nights. Last week's results show got a 2.3, this weeks was adjusted up to a 2.0. That 32% drop was from a performance show two weeks ago, so not nearly as drastic as they make it seem.

    I agree. I said earlier in the season that I was enjoying his judging (he was seemingly authentically laughing and enjoying acts and was not trying too hard), but he has become way too overbearing and trying to control the show. I haven't enjoyed his act the last couple of weeks -- at all.

    Man, I've had it with this show. Such god awful camera angles and over production. Most, if no all, of these acts are designed to be viewed from straight on. The stupid camera director has all these flying camera views and you miss half the act.

    PS, the sound, in general sucks as well.

    PSS, the talent this year is a joke compared to previous seasons.

    There is Howard again thinking he IS America's Got Talent...unimpressed. Watching the first 10 minutes and wanting to mute each time Howard talks.

    That is how I feel about all judge's comments at this point. They are not making the decisions now so their comments are pointless. I usually skip all judge comments. Same on result night, skip the long pauses and boring filler acts (excepts for the occasional good one).

    Every season I have made the same comment about camera angles. They are too bored to just shoot straight on so we miss the synchronization of the dance acts.

    Didn't the juggler drop one? I was surprised that Howard didn't buzz him.

    The guy on the rollers finally answered the question about what it looks like when it goes wrong. No way that kind of act can win anyway.

    I wouldn't be a bit surprised if it turns out that another of the conditions Howard had for being on the show is some right to have, for lack of a better phrase for it, a "Howard's Got Talent" tour (or at least a show somewhere) featuring acts of his choice. Remember that the "Las Vegas Show" promised to the winner only lasts for three days, if they do what they did last year.

    This episode was soooo bad. The juggler dropped, the balancing guy fell, Inspire the Fire's singing and costumes were awful, there were mistakes made by All Wheel Sports, the guy singing and playing the piano was terrible sounding. But the worst of all was Wordspit. They were grating. Howard must have some sort of stake in Wordspit.

    I sorta thought that he dropped it on purpose to build up the suspense for when he was juggling over the woman with "gasoline" on her. But probably not.

    I like having Howard on the show, but I agree he's being overbearing lately. He started out better... He also needs to reel in the advice. He's overstepping there too, but then again, that's Howard Stern. Alpha Male extraordinaire. How much you wanna bet they end up canning Howie (which is fine with me) and replacing him with someone more suited to Howard. That'll last one season and then Sharon will quit (which I would care about)... I hope I'm wrong... :p

    Thank you! I did not get the love for those guys. It sounded like a bunch of instruments all playing from slightly different points on the sheet music. There was no cohesive blend at all; it was a mess. It sounded like a garage band having a bad rehearsal.

    This was a really weak bracket.

    Next week's set of 12 is almost an all-star team. I can easily see a few acts losing out of that 12 that would have won against this week's set of 12.

    That dancing dog was Britain's winner?? I'd hate to see the acts they cut.

    Ha! We were thinking the same thing. Either that, or dogs are a lot more popular in Britain than they are here. :p

    What about Nick Cannon trying to interview the dog afterwards? He actually held the mic to the dog and waited for a response several times. I think the first time was just to be funny, but I kinda' think he expected the dog to answer on the second question.

    Did I see correctly that the previews showed next week will be the Nutcracker moron? Did he actually make it to NewArk?

    The acts I think I would happy with going through from tonight are:

    All That
    Joe Castillo (Sand Artist)
    Sebastien (Kid, I guess is ok)
    Dittleman (even though he was sloppy with the act)
    William Close (unique)
    Unity in Motion
    Eric and Olivia
    Lindsey Norton
    Olate Dogs

    That is 9/12. Personally I am pulling for Lindsey as she is a local.

    Tough week as I don't think any of these acts beside Olate Dogs are a for sure. Not many acts were better than another one, but there were only a few acts that were not worthy of moving on, Human Cannonball guy, Horse and Ulysses
