Howard Stern fans, the wait is another step closer to being over.
On Wednesday, NBC announced some major tweaks to their upcoming schedule, and the most significant of them is that “America’s Got Talent” is going to be airing its two-hour season premiere on Monday, May 14. This will quickly be followed up by another two-hour audition episode the very next day.
This will mark Howard’s grand debut as a judge on the popular talent show, which has undergone some major changes to accommodate his schedule. Now, “AGT” will tape its live shows in New York City, and the show itself is expected to receive a major makeover to go along with some of the major changes on the panel. (Howard is replacing Piers Morgan, who was the last remaining onscreen personality from the first season.)
As for some of the other schedule news announced by NBC, “The Voice” is set to kick off its live shows on Monday, April 6, and they will be adding a one-hour results show to air the following day at 9:00 p.m. Eastern until the season finale airs on May 8. With this news in mind, the show will be cutting “The Biggest Loser” down to an hour — which is what the show should have been years ago. (We’ve never been a fan of spending half an hour watching people weigh themselves.)
Are you planning to check out Howard as a judge, and are you a little surprised that “AGT” is premiering in the thick of the May sweeps?
