    HA! Thank you! I knew I had seen him before.

    I watched this on Tivo so I was able to FF through a huge amount and only watch the acts and judging. It reduced the show to about 20 minutes or less. There is way too much unnecessary filler. Regis calling them down to go back stage is first on my list to axe from this format. They deliberated way too long. It was obvious when they approved, no need for all the niff naw.

    I was not impressed. Brandy and David have to be faster on their buzzers and more diserning.

    Juggling? Just buzz em all.

    I like the campiness of it, too, which is why it reminds me of The Gong Show from the 70's. It's a silly show, but like I said upthread, it's rather refreshing getting away from the s-l-o-w, painful dramatics of other shows like AI.

    I've always felt Regis is disengaged from the folks he interacts with, even on his morning show. He gives me the impression if you're not already famous, or in his inner circle, he can't even muster the energy to try to appear interested in you. There's an affable up-and-coming funny guy named Michael Burger who would be perfect for this show.

    The only reason I remember him is because I recapped the Wayne Newton show.

    I thought this show was pretty funny. So much better than the Inventor show, in which the judges ruined the show for me. I think Hasselhoff is pretty funny, Brandy is actually nice to the contestants.

    I thought this show was hilarious. I almost fell over laughing when the cow spurted milk and they showed the judges faces! This is a good change of pace. I don't take it seriously now, but perhaps when the auditions are over that will change.

    I could only stomach a few minutes of this show. I don't understand why Brandy and David Hasselhoff are judges. Maybe Simon doesn't understanfd American culture as much as he thinks he does. Those two are not often lauded for their talent. If you have every heard Brandy sing a ballad you know how limited her voice is.

    I think an hour of this would be plenty, but I think it's good mindless entertainment for good mindless people!

    I have never heard anyone say, "I LOVE juggling!" Never in my whole life.
