In fact, the second hour of this season's premiere seemed to be like that.  Whenever there's no mention of a particular city, it's usually a patchwork from assorted audition dates.

How in the world does it matter what they are wearing and why would anyone keep track of that? How does that impact the show at all? It is about the acts and their talent, not what they judges are wearing.

Man, did you completely miss the point, which was how much the show was being "created" by using a clip or two from day "A", then skip to day "B", then back to day "A". Viewing what the judges were wearing was an indication of which acts appeared on which day. Was the kid pianist really even close to being the first competitor? I doubt it, but the editors felt he'd be a nice start to the show. So, they cut and paste.

The alternative is to do as on "Shark Tank," where Corcoran and Greiner wear identical outfits (not to each other, but to themselves on their other shooting days) for an entire season, so that a single show can be put together from different taping days whle making it look as if the entrepreneurs on a given episode came in consecutively.  We're apparently supposed to remember only during each episode but not from one week to the next, because the effect is that each seems to change her dress only once a year.

Since Klum and Brown made their marks by being seen by the public, I doubt that they'd go for that.  Better, I think, to do as AGT is doing, and to take the risk that people who notice the clothing changes also will realize that audition shows from are stitched together from various sessions.

I got that, but still, it mattered so little to us that it didn't bother us. Your comment was you were so busy keeping track of the outfits, but for me, I noticed it and moved on. This show is heavily edited, we get that and we don't really care what order they came in.

NBC stays on top on Tuesday night
'Talent' finishes as the night's top show with a 2.8 in 18-49s
By Toni Fitzgerald, Media Life Magazine - Jun. 4, 2014

NBC is clearly the network to beat on Tuesday nights.

Week two of “America’s Got Talent” remained dominant, and lead-out “The Night Shift” held most of its audience from last week’s solid debut, lifting NBC to an easy primetime win last night.

“Talent” averaged a 2.8 adults 18-49 rating from 8 to 10 p.m., according to Nielsen overnights, down just 7 percent from last week’s season premiere, which posted a 3.0.

At 10 p.m., the new drama “Shift” posted a 1.5, down a tenth from last week’s debut.

Elsewhere last night, the series premiere of “Famous in 12,” the CW’s new reality series about a family who moves to Hollywood to become famous, managed just a 0.3 in 18-49s and 728,000 total viewers.

The season finale of ABC’s “Celebrity Wife Swap” surged 17 percent from last week to a 1.4 in 18-49s, its best rating in more than a year.

Earlier in the night, ABC’s “Extreme Weight Loss” posted a 1.1, falling 15 percent from last week, though it was up over the same night last year.

Fox’s “Riot” and “I Wanna Marry ‘Harry’” continued to struggle, both posting 0.4 ratings.

NBC led the night among 18-49s with a 2.4 average overnight rating and an 8 share. ABC was second at 1.2/4, CBS and Univision tied for third at 1.0/3, Telemundo was fifth at 0.6/2, Fox sixth at 0.4/1 and CW seventh at 0.3/1.

As a reminder, all ratings are based on live-plus-same-day DVR playback, which includes shows replayed before 3 a.m. the night before. Seven-day DVR data won’t be available for several weeks. Forty-nine percent of Nielsen households have DVRs.

At 8 p.m. NBC was first with a 2.6 for “Talent,” while ABC and CBS tied for second at 1.0, ABC for “Weight” and CBS for a repeat of “NCIS.” Univision was fourth with a 0.8 for “De Que Te Quiero, Te Quiero,” Telemundo fifth with a 0.5 for “La Impostora,” Fox sixth with a 0.4 for “Riot” and CW seventh with a 0.3 for “Famous.”

NBC was first again at 9 p.m. with a 3.1 for more “Talent,” with ABC and Univision tied for second at 1.2, ABC for more “Weight” and Univision for “Lo Que La Vida Me Robo.” CBS was fourth with a 1.0 for a rerun of “NCIS: Los Angeles,” Telemundo fifth with a 0.6 for “En Otra Piel,” Fox sixth with a 0.4 for “Marry” and CW seventh with a 0.3 for a “Supernatural” repeat.

At 10 p.m. NBC led with a 1.5 for “Shift,” followed by ABC with a 1.4 for “Swap.” Univision was third with a 0.9 for “Que Pobres Tan Ricos” and CBS and Telemundo tied for fourth at 0.8, CBS for a repeat of “Person of Interest” and Telemundo for “El Señor de los Cielos.”

NBC was also first for the night among households with a 5.9 average overnight rating and a 10 share. CBS was second at 4.8/8, ABC third at 2.5/4, Univision fourth at 1.4/2, Fox and Telemundo tied for fifth at 0.8/1, and CW seventh at 0.5/1.

Found a few of the acts to be good, not great. The card kid was impressive with how far he could throw one, but really, a million dollar act? Howard was right, they shouldn't of gone through.

Heidi wore 3 different outfits for the first 3 acts, a 4th a couple of acts later, and 5 overall for the evening. Howie sure took interest in her missing bra. BTW, I've been breaking pencils with a folded dollar bill for 40 years now. [You slip your finger in there during the downswing.] That guy was a cheap fraud.

But Heidi doesn't wear a bra at all.. (how that guy appeared one IDK)

At least the outfits she was wearing were bra-less, specially that one that with the belly high cleavage..

Yeah Howie wants something with the ladies if he could, he was hoping the ladies let him touch their boobs or something else..

Anyway there weren't any impressive acts and the camerawork was awful like always.. (aerial act, motorcycle act)

RIP Mom, we always love you 8/18/13

One thing that continues to bug me is that often the director will switch from the camera showing the act to showing the reaction of the judges when I want to study the act. (Last year they cut away from the magician in the middle of a trick! )

Now that the picture is 33% wider than way back in the olden days, why can't they carve out a bit from a corner of the screen to show the reaction of the judges?

Another thing I have found distracting this season is the continually changing backdrop behind most of the acts.

However, overall, I am enjoying the season.

I just hope that at some point the director will address the bits that bug me.

My very humble setup:
Man Cave:Vizio E500i-A1 "Smart TV" (50-in 1080p 120Hz LED/LCD, has Netflix app.), Blu-ray players (Sony BDP-S3100, old LG BD390), Roku (the original model: N1000), PC (Windows 7), Comcast Internet (25Mbps/5Mbps).
Bedroom:LG 32LV3400-UA TV (32-in 768p 60Hz LED/LCD), HD DVR (Motorola RNG200N), Xfinity Comcast cable (Digital Starter Package), DVD/VHS player.

Mark, that's classic NBC idiocy, going back to my earliest memories of watching television in the 1950s.  It's OK to spend time on reaction shots when singers, musicians, or comedians are performing, but they do it just the same to dancers, acrobats, magicians, danger acts, animal acts, and even the projection and illumination acts.

When the show premiered in 2006 my first reaction was why, why, why are they letting it get anywhere near NBC?

I loves me some Smoothini. The guy was incredibly quick and smooth. So far he has impressed me more than anyone else. Although, getting snippets of other acts here and there leaves us without a complete picture of the talent as a whole, so far it has been a fairly uneventful start. But it is a guilty pleasure I look forward to every week.

Again awful camera directing work...

I have a few doubts: Did the trained cat act went through? what about the twerk girl?

Loved that smoothini guy and the fan girls, the comedian made me laugh (and I'm not easy)

The hand stand guy, wasn't he cringing at the end, like he yelled in pain? he even said sorry but the judges didn't seem to notice..

RIP Mom, we always love you 8/18/13

Comedian Jodi Miller could use a new stage name; her current one is too much like that of singer Jody Miller.  It doesn't help that Jody Miller's first and biggest hit was a novelty song, and thus she's also associated with the humor profession.

(And calling her a comedian reminds me that I'm old enough to remember when a female person in that line of work was designated a comedienne.  In that era restaurant servers and airline flight attendants and quite a few other careers and pursuits carried different terms for people according to gender.)

Just watched 3 weeks at once, I usually repect Stern's opinion but those fake Kung Fu guys are one trick ponies. I got it's a parody act but to save them with the golden buzzer was wrong, Howard.

It is possible that they will come back with something different next time and vindicate Howard's use of the golden buzzer.

However, if I had money riding on the outcome, that's not how I would bet; rather, I would have my money riding on Howard wishing to change the act he used the golden buzzer on.

Man Cave:Vizio E500i-A1 "Smart TV" (50-in 1080p 120Hz LED/LCD, has Netflix app.), Blu-ray players (Sony BDP-S3100, old LG BD390), Roku (the original model: N1000), PC (Windows 7), Comcast Internet (25Mbps/5Mbps).

Since auditions are aired out of order, that one may have been near the very end, and Stern might have decided he'd rather use his one shot at the Golden Buzzer than leave it unused, figuring not to champion the act during the eliminations in the next round (which used to be called the Las Vegas Round, but I don't know where it was held this year), and then the producers decided to include that clip in the season premiere to illustrate to viewers how the Golden Buzzer works.

Tonight: more auditions.

Exclamation Special Airing!

This Sunday (June 22, 2014) at 9pm-11pm/8-10c there will be two acts too big to fit in a regular show, one of them a record-breaking act. Or so says a teaser at the end of last night's America's Got Talent.

My very humble setup:
Man Cave:Vizio E500i-A1 "Smart TV" (50-in 1080p 120Hz LED/LCD, has Netflix app.), Blu-ray players (Sony BDP-S3100, old LG BD390), Roku (the original model: N1000), PC (Windows 7), Comcast Internet (25Mbps/5Mbps).

To confuse things further, Comcast's guide has this coming Sunday's show listed as a rerun.

Regarding last night: Maggie Lane wanted to show off both her singing and her body, right?  OK, fine.  But IMO she should have taken off her wrap as the introductory music began and then started singing.  By starting to sing first and then taking off the wrap while she sang, she muddled the issue and left it unclear what talent she was there for.

My local NBC affiliate's programming guide also shows this Sunday as a repeat. the Xfinity (Comcast) HD DVR guide also says it is a repeat.

However, when I go to the NBC web site, it calls out this Sunday's broadcast as a special.

At this time, I am planning on recording this Sunday's broadcast and, if it turns out to be a repeat, no harm is done. (I'll just record a later airing of the pilot to The Last Ship.) But if the brief clip at the end of last night's show and http://www.nbc.com/americas-got-talent are right, I would see the two big events too big for the regular Tuesday airings.

Man Cave:Vizio E500i-A1 "Smart TV" (50-in 1080p 120Hz LED/LCD, has Netflix app.), Blu-ray players (Sony BDP-S3100, old LG BD390), Roku (the original model: N1000), PC (Windows 7), Comcast Internet (25Mbps/5Mbps).

Really liked the story telling, card guy. So far my favorite two acts have been that guy and Smoothini.

Decent singers this year, nothing spectacular, but good enough to make for some competition if they all continue to progress, music wise.

I wasn't at all impressed with the military singer. The guy has no range. Ladies and gentleman; the 2014 military sympathy vote.

The opera singer had an extremely nice looking body, but she won't go far.

Really great acts this year. I don't think the military singer was as good as the judges thought and the bikini opera singer had a great body but is going to do that every time? I agree with Howard, seemed kind of odd.

And it seemed more blatantly that the auditions are rehearsed, they shouldn't tell the judges the contestants back stories before they come on stage, how they know they have this or that problem without knowing them?

Yes, Howard knew the impressions lady and maybe she told him on his show she'll be participating, but how about the rest? there's no way they could know the aerial act lady had health problems, why they asked?

The military guy sang awfully, but I guess he gets the sympathy military voice.. (don't they remember that other fraud guy that claimed a war injury?)

I agreed w/Howard on the Opera/bikini woman, the "strip" didn't fit the act ...
As soon as she started to strip I thought, " No point to this, she may get X's for the idiotic strip tease even though the voice is OK" ...
She perhaps should have done the "reverse" .. Come out oiled up in a bikini, & instead of some expected athletic/body type act, she starts singing opera...

The acts already went through auditions/interviews with producers to be here. The producers got all the backstory they needed from their interviews and they either give the judges sheets of paper with their backstory (like on So You Think You Can Dance) or they are fed information into their ear piece to ask a probing question. They are not rehearsed, the producers just have a lot more information since they sit down with every act and talk to them before they ever make it on stage.

The bikini opera signer was interesting. Opera signers tend to do well at the early audition rounds.

The card playing story guy was good even though I've seen this kind of tricks before.

The 12 year old kid comedian telling sexual jokes, I don't know how to take it. His material was good but I didn't think the judges should encourage him continuing this way by putting him through.

Yeah, I thought the 12 year old's jokes were inappropriate, and I'm a total perv. Was glad to see Stern speak up about the bikini Opera singer, it just didn't make sense. Who knew Howard would be the voice of reason on this show?
