    Conversation started in the pre-season thread... Creating a formal thread for season 29...

    Talk amongst yourselves (and yes...me too!).

    Not "feeling it" with the applause track and the lack of a live audience... Also not loving Tyra Banks as host... I'll keep watching and give her the benefit of the doubt that there will be some growing pains...

    Tyra hosted America's Got Talent for I think just 1 season and was dreadful at it. Don't expect anything better here. Then again Tom Bergeron as host is very tough act to follow. Without Len as a judge it's never the same, but at least Derek is there instead of his sister who I did not like on the judging panel - she was fine as a dancer/pro but not a judge.
    I've watched this show since season 1 and even attended live once, but it's getting harder to keep my interest, especially without Len and Tom.

    I didn’t realize I had it set to record on Plex, so I scanned through it, since I had removed it from the TiVo’s schedule. Didn’t care for it with Tyra and the fake crowd audio didn’t seem to be used that well either. I doubt I watch anymore. I’ll leave it on Plex to scan through if something newsworthy happens.

    I applaud all of the celebs... they really really tried. But Carole and the basketball player are just dreadful.

    Still don't know who some of these celebs are, even after the main introduction package. :)

    Tyra... ugh. I'll give her the benefit of the doubt at the start. Frankly I thought she was better in the second hour than the first. But still no Bergeron/Andrews.

    Never watched before, but had to watch cuz of Tiger Lady.

    I thought they were all pretty good, but what do I know about dancing.

    Tiger lady was the worst of the bunch.

    But still give her props for well,, not falling down

    More than most episodes, it felt like some of the early dancers had a distinct disadvantage when it came to scoring. Especially Jeannie Mai who I think would have definitely received a higher score had she danced later in the night. I get it. They don't want to give out super high scores to start out with because then where do they go if someone does even better. But so many people with three 6's.

    Tuesday this week instead of Monday (one-time simulcast of Monday Night Football on ABC). Heads up.

    I totally agree. I stopped watching AGT because of Tyra and refuse to watch DWTS because of her also. What they did to Tom is uncalled for. He was a wonderful host. I don't look for this show to make it another season nor do I think AGT will make it either. Not sure what the network is thinking.

    I'm not totally hating Tyra, as long as I don't look at her. Her Minnie Mouse getup looks like a drunk Halloween party reject. Ugh. Her chatter is better.
