This is just fun, guys, lighten up a bit.
You are absolutely right, 1953, but you have to admit the "smoking monkeys" are funny! This is the most fun since "The Ted Mack Amateur Hour".
AGT, IMHO, is not really the "New Howard Stern Show". If it were, he would have been cancelled by now. And judge v judge is not new ... remember the Hoff and Piers exchanges? .. or Len and Bruno? ... or Adam and Christina? … or even Simon and, well … everybody?!
It's still making money because it entertains ... cheesy, yes; but entertaining. Every once in a while, a good act shows up that actually has talent AND wins, but they don't seem to draw too many contestants like Fator any more.
IMO, most people tune in for the bad acts and the judges’ antics. It’s a form of the 70’s variety shows … Carol Burnett & Co., Sonny & Cher, Dean Martin Comedy Hour, etc., just not as talented or funny as those classics.
So Sharon has a beef with NBC and decides this is her swan season. Ok. Get someone else to replace her and keep the fun coming for as long as they can … because if there is one thing that’s for sure, it’s that NBC will unlatch itself from this baby the minute it stops making money.
Meanwhile, have some fun!
