Listen, I don't say this often, but Nick Cannon is clearly the most talented person involved with the whole process.

Stern is a good judge because he just says what anyone with a lick of sense would say. "You suck." "That was cool."

It doesn't seem like rocket science. I like those dancing spray paint guys though, cool.

I've only seen a couple episodes, but the candidate that sticks out is the 6-year-old dancing girl. Both times she performed Howard was the only voice of reason. And he said it perfectly, "You're very good for a 6-year old, and you're adorable, but there is no way you can compete in this particular competition."

And everybody boos, and the other two jackasses give her the go ahead. Seriously, the little girl is cute and probably the life of every family party. But she can't even stay in rhythm with the song that's playing.

Stern is the best judge, but he's still an ass about it to everyone else.

Right now, I want the spray paint dance team to win. Their entire performance is amazing. Hell if they win, they could sell the art pieces at the end of every show and rake in even more money.

I still wanna see the Earth Harp again (since they've only showed it once) and I think that'll be one of the few acts to give the spray paint team a run for their money. And I did like some of the comics too, they're pretty damn funny this year.

Tom Cotter will be performing tonight, as well as Donovan & Rebecca, who I think are a lot of fun to watch. Turf and the Aurora Light Painters will also be performing, and I expect that, so long as Cotter has a good show, these four will advance.

Neat. Cotter is hilarious and his delivery is damn-near perfect. Donovan & Rebecca are weird as hell, but in a good way. Their freakish strength and incredible balance is insane. You know those two have some insane shiat in their bedroom. I really like Turf, but worried he won't be able to carry a 90 minute act, which Howard is emphasizing every time he sees a standalone act. Then again, he did stuff I've never seen before, and being double-jointed everywhere sure helps. I wanna figure out how the hell the Light Painters do their thing, it's pretty cool, I just don't want it to get stale. I think they've done a mermaid every time.

The other eight acts are: Tim Hockenberry , Danielle Stallings, Big Barry, The All Ways, LCD - Lisa Clark Dancers, Hawley Magic, Ben Blaque and LionDanceMe. None of them are really standout acts to me.

Stern is hugely talented. He's where he's at for a reason. He's got a brilliant mind for broadcasting, which includes, as someone said above, being honest, and just saying what the common person would say.

He may have been history's best troll, but he knew what he was up to the entire time. Also, after 30 plus years of being in the spotlight, he's got an ego the size of a yacht. No wonder he took over. Sharon Osbourne has no business being there, and Howie Mandel is just working for the paychecks.
 
2012-07-10 12:16:32 PM
Also, Nick Cannon is beyond terrible. I know people hate him for some reason, but Seacrest hosts a show. He brings it together and moves it along. Cannon still think he's in middle school trying to be the class clown. Just awful.

This. And imagine how Simon would have handled it had he been the judge. I think Howard was perfect in delivering the tough news to a 6-year on national TV. He could have been very crass and cruel, but he let her down gently. And he did state the obvious, "you're cute, but cute will only take you so far here." Not a fan of the show but I do like how Howard is very straight-forward, honest and offers good criticism. Otherwise you get three Mrs. Osborne's who would hand everyone a trophy and call them all winners.

The guy who gets kicked in the balls had better win. He is the best act I've ever seen on that show.

Howard Stern's shows from 25 years ago are more entertaining than anything on TV right now.

Just wait 'til the judges are Howie, Sharon, and re-runs from the old Stern show. "Old bit with K.C. and the crackhead, what did you think of the performance?"
 
2012-07-10 12:30:10 PM
I really liked Piers. Even late in the show, I'd comment that the act was getting boring and sure enough a second later, Piers would buzz. Even though the crowd would boo him regularly, he was just as regularly right.

I actually like Nick Canon. He may not host the way Seacrest does (I wouldn't know), but him being in the wings seems like he is so personable with everyone that he can help be the all around supportive person each contestant needs just before going on and coming off no matter what happens.
 
2012-07-10 12:30:24 PM
I don't generally watch the show but the few times I've seen it I have to grudgingly admit that Howard stands out as the most able and sensible person there. It's easy to forget that not just anyone can have a mike pointed at them for three hours straight and manage to fill live air without sounding awkward. Ryan Seacrest has this same talent. Nothing phases either one of them and they are never at a loss for words. They also don't mumble, raise their voices, trip over their words or speak too quickly. Sounds so simple but apparently it's not. Live performances are where this really stands out.
 
2012-07-10 12:31:27 PM
I haven't listened to Howard Stern's radio or satellite show in at least 10 years. I was a big fan in Middle school...

But I was almost shocked at just how boring the guy is. Is his show as boring as his judging gig on AGT? I was expecting more out of him.
 
2012-07-10 12:51:07 PM
I love Howard's radio show, but I just can't get into AGT. I watched the first two nights, loved the judges and some of the acts, and then had enough. Talent shows are only entertaining for a short time, then I go into my, "Who gives a damn?" phase.

The worst is that he talks about it incessantly on his radio show, which is understandable, but also very dull.

Um, he's on a show where 6 year old kids come out and dance while America goes "Awwwww". It's family entertainment. What were you expecting?

*Shrug* something interesting? I thought that was the whole point of adding him to the panel?

What was the point of bringing in the guy if he was going to be exactly as boring as the other two judges and less interesting than the guy he replaced?

It's a network show. Did you expect him to bring on a stripper and spank her on the judge's panel?

Having watched this show from the first season.... this is the suckiest group of live show people ever. There really is not a wow act IMHO. The giant harp guy is my favorite, but really no one stands up like previous years.

Actually, he's miles better than the other two but no, he can't really bring most of his shtick to AGT. I think you might have to accept that this show just isn't made for you. In truth, I find it only moderately entertaining but my kids like it and it's something we can all watch together. Interestingly, none of them had ever heard of Howard Stern before so they had no expectations. They think he's funny and direct.

Agreed. You start listening and the next thing you know, you've been doing it for a few hours. Still missing the live show though.

Howard on Sirius has been amazing. Some of the interviews this year (Roger Waters comes to mind) have been great. And all the trashing on Ronnie Mund is hilarious.

can someone explain why the human cannonball made it through?

seriously? has this act not been around since like, the 1930s?
 
2012-07-10 02:50:47 PM
I guess I'm the only one who likes Howie Mandel's shtick. Especially in the early rounds when he's the last hold out on the buzzer. The shiat eating grin when he knows the other 2 are suffering while he insists that act will get better is priceless. He's critcal when needed and funny when he knows the act already has two votes against.

America's Got Talent makes me feel actual emotional sickness (and despair for my country) when I see it on TV (while my girlfriend is watching it, and before I can scamper out of the room in terror)

The show is staggeringly cheesy, horribly edited (possibly one of the worst I've ever seen), NOT hosted whatsoever (Nick Cannon makes kooky facial expressions every once in a while)...it's amazing it is even on the air at all. The first ten minutes of the show is just INTRODUCING THE JUDGES with an unbelievable amount of fanfare and glitz. American Idol spends about 5 seconds on the judge intro, and is a far superior show.

Sharon Osbourne's taut, plasticized face is a living nightmare...especially with her rictus-like grin of pure evil. Her incoherent babblings are meaningless, and cause me to want to weep when exposed to them.

Howie Mandel's weird OCD issues and smarmy smiling is disgusting. Most pathetic judge in the history of reality TV.

Howard Stern is the only judge with any credibility, but you can tell every time he utters a scripted line, as he does so half-heartedly. The restrictive muzzle of prime time TV forces him to crush and dilute his true talent into a bland paste for the audience to digest properly.

It's cheap, lame, and takes itself too seriously.

I guess that brings me back to the original question:

What's the point of having Howard Stern on this show if the constraints of a "Network Show" prevent him from doing anything different from the two existing judges? Just hire Regis Philbin or something instead...and I would wager that Regis is so old and out of it that it would be *more* interesting.

You realize one of the things he once ridiculed was aging celebrities divorcing their wives to marry hot young models and actresses once they became rich, right? Stern crossed that bridge a long time ago.

For the same reason American Idol hired Steven Tyler. They are hoping he says or does something outrageous, but at a PG level of outrageous, or at least one that can be edited down to that level. Regis is just too much of a gentleman to even think of doing that kind of thing. The difference between Tyler and Stern is that Stern had to live that gig for years live on the radio so he has much better control. He can dial it back at will whereas Tyler just mouths off and has to be bleeped.

Yes, but I believe Alison (?) was the one who filed for divorce, not Howard. She didn't want to be part of the media parade anymore.

Hence, Howard was back on the market, and while he ended up marrying a hot young(er) model, it wasn't his plan all along.
