It is a little over a month away from the first AGT taping and both of the judges' chairs next to Howard are still empty. There aren't any rumors anymore of who might replace Sharon. Howie hasn't reupped even though he said he would decide in January and there are only 3 1/2 days left in the month.
Howard signed on with AGT in December of last year. They were advertising him in the Super Bowl a year ago next week. Now it doesn't look like they will even have three judges for the show by the time the Super Bowl airs.
I wonder if people just don't want to work with that camera hog Howard. Last thing any decent sized name wants to do is come into one of these shows knowing they are second tier to Howard.
