These are different from the fast affiliate numbers which are just estimates of the actual ratings and are reported on by most other outlets. The final nationals are typically released within 24 hours of the programming or, in the case of weekends and holidays, a couple days later.

    We are now officially done watching America’s Got Talent. Judges are not funny or witty anymore . All wishy washy on hurting everyone’s feelings and the acts are horrible. Don’t think it should be renewed. How could it have fallen so far? Use the time slot for something good.

    THE JUDGES NEED TO KNOW TWO WORDS YES OR NO.
    THIS IS SUPPOSE TO BE ABOUT THE NEW TALENT,
    NOT THE JUDGES.
    COMINTARY BY JUDGES IS NOT NESSESSARY.

    IT SHOULD BE ON THE LINES OF AUTHER GODFREY TALENT SHOW.

    P.S.
