    Summer fun: AGT's back! Bring on the weird acts

    My favorite summer fun show. This year has Howard Stern no less. I love this show for all the weird, bizarre acts. I hope this year the winner will NOT be a singer. Go magicians, dance troupes, dog acts (which won Britian's version), and general bizarreness.

    The acts suck so far, but Stern is cracking me up so I'm good.

    Father/Daughter act No 1 were cute but bad. Father/Daughter act No 2 were amazing. The girl is a fantastic singer. I hope they go far. Her dad is there to give this kid a break. They are street muscians and she has a real chance to be a star.

    So far it seems like the Howard Stearns show. I don't know if I can stay with it.

    So far my favorite part is the new google ad with the muppets - great ad.

    Well, the opera singer gave me "goosies."

    So far, I'm liking Stern, although he is a bit dominating.....but far more entertaining than Piers Wet Noodle Morgan. The act I like the best so far (only saw the first show) is the Earth Harp - that was fascinating!

    I've only seen about half of the 1st show but I agree. The earth harp is unreal.

    I only saw the end of the harp. Most of the acts were awful, but Stern is cracking me up.
    I think I will have a snack and take a nap before I eat and go to sleep.

    The "Earth Harp" is fascinating.
    However, how will he make it intriguing for more than one performance?

    He is me too. I do wonder how he negotiated all the air time for himself. Sharon and Howie are being ignored. I liked the father/daughter singer on Monday and dog ventriloquism act on Tuesday. I think they sent through a lot of good acts without showing them. I like the weird and wonderful for a few shows, then they start getting a bit old and I'm ready to see the talented. My favorite part of this show is the variety. I almost wish they wouldn't let singers audition and keep it more variety centered. I'm really hoping for a non-singing act to win this time. It's been a long time since one did.

    I don't usually watch the show and tuned in for Stern. I think he's great on the show and will keep me watching. He's so much better than any of the "judges" on American Idol.

    Maybe a dog act will win this year. Very fun.

    Howard Stern isn't obnoxious at all and makes sensible comments.
    A very pleasant surprise.

    The leader of the 787 crew from Puerto Rico reminded me of Trankov

    This is taking too long. I can't remember if there are any good acts.

    And I assume they will need an Olympic break too.

    Has anyone been watching but me?

    Love love love that David Garibaldi painter group. He is feckin' brilliant! I certainly hope he takes those paintings and puts them in a gallery or sells them, because I bet fans would pay some major mulla for those paintings. Very cool last night when he painted the picture black and it had the reverse image on the other side. How do people even think up stuff like that in the first place.

    He got all my votes last night. He will likely get them every time .... uhm, unless he goes up against the doggie act that advanced straight to NYC we haven't seen yet. Then I will have to split my votes. Bring on the doggies!

    I'm watching, but on delay. Took me less than an hour to watch the four hours from Vegas. I'm saving last night's show for this weekend.

    I only watched part of last night, but I have decided I am not voting for any singers.

    I liked the brother dance act and the brass band. Dance act has gone through. We'll see about the brass band.

    Howard Stern started out OK but is waaay too full of himself at this point. This is NOT the Howard Stern show.

    Does it seem like Sharon and Howie are a little at Howard?

    I like the painter but there was an act like that that made the club rounds in NY in the 80s so it's not original. The rest that went thru are fine.
