If Howard would just shut up about AGT while he's doing the radio show I wouldn't care but he's boring and annoying the shit out of the few listeners he has left. It's obvious from the decline in ratings that his radio audience didn't follow him to AGT and has ZERO interest in it. I keep hoping that at some point Howard will realize he's making a fool of himself by trying to claim there's something important about being a judge on the Gong Show. Apparently the fact that several of his guests have laughed in his face when he brought up AGT isn't enough to end his delusions.
There was an interview posted a couple weeks back of he and Beth on the Red Carpet for some premier and was asked if he was going to be back on AGT and IMO it sounded like Beth really wanted him to re-sign more than he ...saying she would watch him every night from bed with the cats.
Beth really calls that guy she was fucking "the cats"???
If he is deemed a failure in this AGT venture it ruins his chances of getting what he really wants, some sort of mainstream network interview show to do after he finishes this radio contract. Going on this retarded show was all about his brand and reshaping his image. Howard doesn't need $15 million so badly that he'd fuck up his summer and "judge" dancing dogs in Newark while his wife is partying with Katy Lee in the Hamptons. It's all about setting himself up for a future after radio.
With all due respect, I think you're way off...I have no idea why Stern continues with AGT but I think all signals point to him retiring from everything at the end of his radio contract.
Howard signed a multi year deal, not many people sign single year contacts. That being said, prepare yourself, he might be around next year. We'll find out when Howard sues NBC and the contract becomes public.

and after thinkin bout it.. Howard always goes for the long term contract and it has to be that he originally signed for 2 years.
when his boy toy from that band was on, the judge on that other show, Howard asked him, right after signing with NBC,"You signed for 3 years right?" in a way that sounded as if everyone that is a judge signs for 3 years. Whosie said no he didn't and Howard bristled a lil over it and moved on fast.
