Hollywood Reporter posted about the premiere dates for America’s Got Talent 2012.
America’s Got Talent — with its new judge, shock jock Howard Stern — will premiere the week after with two-hour episodes Monday and Tuesday, May 14 and 15. It will return to its regular one-hour slot on Mondays and Tuesdays the following week.
Many have been complaining on this site and on Twitter about their choice of Howard Stern as the new America’s Got Talent judge. I’m sure that more and more complaints will come in since many of them probably haven’t even yet heard that Howard Stern is the new judge.
I think it’s a smart move by NBC to put America’s Got Talent in the same time slot as The Voice. It likely has a similar viewership. We’ll see how Howard Stern and the move to New York effects the ratings.
