    Shows like that are about competition as entertainment, not actual talent. Talented people just go do talented stuff without nationwide text voting.

    I learned way back in 2000-2001 that unless it's a scripted comedy, stand-up comedy, or scripted drama/action show, I won't even consider watching it. The phony-baloney programming on TV that has been branded as a "reality/contestant/talent" format is simply not worth my time. Too many so-called documentary-type programming are equally fake and worthless.

    So let's review:
    • Well-written, well-cast fiction rocks.
    • Everything else can eat my socks.

    I asked my buddy why my wife likes that show and I can’t stand being in the same room when it’s in. His answer was “she has a v*****. You don’t.”

    Well I wonder if the winner actually realized the Cool Million was actually an ANNITY, paid over 40 years, @ 25K/year. Or could take a lump sum of 175K?


    Well in past years they have had some cool talent like the Asian Migician who did card tricks.

    This was the best of all of them. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rk_qLtk0m2c

    I
    like the auditions, but I stop watching when after the auditions.

    i would love to put on shows with the talents that get the axe. They leave a lot of very talented folks go to waste.

    I couldn’t imagine being this upset all the time about everything in life.

    It must be exhausting.....

    I don’t watch that drivel, but occasionally catch the tail end of one of those ridiculous shows. It strikes me that there are very few white folks competing in most of them.

    Wife and I watch the show just to see some amazing talent but a few thoughts
    • This season was by FAR the worst in terms of talent and who the winner was. Anybody going to pay money to see this clown spew poetry in Vegas? nah don't think so
    • Should be renamed Worlds Got Talent, since none of the judges are american and 75% of the talent come from oversees
    • We DVR the show so we can fast forward thru the 15 minute judges intro, the dumb human interest stories, and constant commercials.
    • I think they should ban singers from the show, let them compete on the Voice or American Idol. The danger acts should get more recognition
