I can't stand AGT because they never just focus the camera on the act, they continually switch back and forth between all of the judges, then the audience, then the parents, so you only actually see a small portion of the act taking place on the stage! Take that great ventriloquist, for example, I never saw more than a 10 or 15 second snippet of her, as the camera switched continuously to everyone in the theater. It gets so frustrating. I remember last year I saw a tightrope act, I think it was, and the exiting, dramatic walk across the high wire was basically a series of quick shots with the rest of the performance being shot after shot after shot of Simon Cowell or the others looking on in amazement! I can never figure out why they do this. If I wanted to see one hundred shots of Simon Cowell sitting there and reacting I'd prefer they produce a show called "Simon Cowell and The Judge's reaction Shots" so I could watch a show where the camera just focuses on the great acts as they happen.

Hi Sir-Ed

While I understand your frustration and sometimes I wish they would show the performers more, I have to admit that I like when they pan the audience and the judges. I especially like to watch the reaction on Howie’s face. You can see the sheer awe and enjoyment with his expressions.

Thank you, but no, please. We watch it a day behind on Hulu, as we don’t have any access to live TV (on purpose).

Not a problem. :) I’ve been considering getting rid of comca$t and doing Roku. I see that with Roku you can get your local channels. We already get Amazon Prime so, being able to get local channels would be a plus and inch us closer to cutting ties with Comca$t. The problem is with The bundles. You drop one and they raise the others to ridiculous prices so that you don’t save anything. Unfortunately for us the only other alternative for internet is at&t and they are way slower than Comca$t. Kind of a dilemma.

Its possible that the Nick Cannon so many of us liked, might have been an act.

I see Roseanne has been cancelled. You didn’t really think they would let her attack liberals on tv for very long did ya? President Bush was compared to apes and monkeys all the time. Did all those people get fired? Nope.

The cats were kind of cool. Had cats most of my life and they never did all those things.

Card Trick was good.

That little girl was so brilliant. I knew she would win the show the first time she did her act (at the audition). Kids win this show a lot, and it’s not because they are cute. I bet Terry Fator was at first really overjoyed to see her, then I bet he wanted to find a way to get her on his show so she didn’t get a competing Vegas show to his! She’s that good!

One thing I dislike about the Got Talent franchises, changing the camera shots too much. And the audience shock shots, lol. I’ve been in an audience here where we were told to do different emotions and they filmed us doing them all (nothing on the stage).

“Ok, guys, pretend you are watching the grossest, most disgusting thing you’ve ever seen! It makes you want to vomit!”

“Now you are seeing the cutest act you’ve ever saw! Puppies! Babies! Kittens! Adorable!”

And of course “Remember, guys, today we are in CHICAGO. So when they say “Welcome to Chicago,” you guys cheer and go nuts!”

Etc.

For that reason, I’d never want to be in the audience of AGT. When an unattractive person comes on the stage and audience members are shown laughing or looking disgusted, they may have just been obeying instructions before they even saw the contestant. But I’d never want to be on TV looking like I’m making fun of a person like that.

We loved the cat trick! Watched that act twice upon request.
