NBC has a couple of announcements this morning for their popular talent competition show, “America’s Got Talent” (AGT). As auditions for the show’s seventh season continues across the country, NBC stated in a press release that production for the live shows will be in New York. It was also announced this morning that the replacement for show judge Piers Morgan will be controversial radio host Howard Stern.
It seems that with Stern joining the judging panel, it will bring “America’s Got Talent” one step closer to what it has slowing become, a big tent with circus acts. Stern qualifies as it’s ringleader. We will be waiting and watching when AGT returns to NBC in the Summer 2012.
