David Hasselhoff announced on Wednesday night that he is officially leaving the NBC show America’s Got Talent.Â David has been serving on the judges’ panel since the series premiered in 2006, and his fellow judges were just as shocked as we were. Keep reading for more details…
While helping host the Today show last Thursday, Piers Morgan commented on the news, “I didn’t know anything about this until last night. My phone went and somebody said, ‘David’s leaving the show.’ I’m really shocked.”
PiersÂ added that he was very sad to hear about it. “He and I were on the first season together, we’ve done four years together. I didn’t know him before. I think he thought I was the devil incarnate from Britain, I wasn’t massively convinced by him, and we became really good friends. He’s a crazy, lovable, endearing guy who happens to have starred in the two biggest TV shows of all time — Knight Rider and Baywatch. He was great on [America's Got Talent].”
David said the reason for his departure was that he would be working on an A & E reality series with his children due out next fall. Piers added, “He’s talked to me before about it. His real dream, I think, would be to make his own show with his family. He’s incredibly close to his kids. I’d watch that. He’s a compulsive guy to watch on TV.”
