I mostly enjoy watching the performers, but I have a real gripe about the show itself. What kind of morons are the producers and/or editors? Why do they spend so damned much time showing us what’s coming up, introducing the judges, recapping what’s gone before, telling us how the show works, telling us how the judging will work, recapping what they already told us about how the show and the judging will work, recapping a performer’s previous appearance, showing us the performers standing and sitting around backstage, showing us a performer warming up, showing a performer talking about why they’re there, recapping a performer talking about why they’re there, Springer talking about the recap of the performer talking about why they’re there . . . and on and on, so much that we barely get to see any of the actual performances!!
I mean, I didn’t time it, but I’d bet a lot that out of the show time last night (not including commercials), way less than half was spent on the actual performances. When they all came out to get told if they were in or out, I was just amazed at how many of them we hadn’t even seen perform!
The show is called “America’s Got Talent”, not “America’s Got a Good Backstage Story”. Show us the talent, not that other crap!
