America’s Got Talent on NBC is currently showing season six auditions as we gear up for a fun filled summer of the series. Last week we watched a lot of disagreements between the judges, even as far as watching Sharon Osbourne and Howie Mandel rejoice as Piers Morgan was stuck in a storm and could not make the show. But is there really drama behind the scenes or this just for the fun of the show? Keep reading to find out!
America’s Got Talent fans laughed this week as we watched Howie’s numerous pranks on Piers Morgan, and at one point both Howie and Sharon rejoiced as Piers was unable to make it to the set of the show due to a storm delay. But is there more to the story or do Howie and Piers just put this show on to entertain us? Contrary to what most may think, Piers Morgan revealed to Access Hollywood that the feud between the pair is actually real. Piers referred to Howie Mandel as the most annoying man on the planet and added “He does things like, we had these six giant human dancing gnomes on the show – which I hated – most annoying act I’ve ever seen. And of course, I go and try to grab an hour’s sleep in between the two shows, and next thing I know, there’s a bang at the door and there’s Mandel with the six giant gnomes.” I guess that explains his multiple tantrums and walking off the panel last week!
While Howie Mandel has yet to comment on the drama between the pair, we do know that Howie and Sharon are good friends as she recently revealed that in our interview with her and we also learned that the drama is causing for excellent ratings for the premiere! America’s Got Talent actually won the ratings this week, and the 2 hour episode on Wednesday went as far as beating out Fox’s 2 hours of So You Think You Can Dance! The 2 hour audition episode landed 12.65 million viewers, NBC’s largest audience in the Wednesday 9-11 p.m. time slot, other than sports, since Sept. 15 when it aired the final hour of the America’s Got Talent season finale – which was 5 million plus more viewers than So You Think You Can Dance.
