    I really enjoy this show! To be blunt, I would change the presenter / host. JB Smoove comes across as phony as his name. Between his speech impediment and shouting everytime he speaks, I want to change the channel each time I see him!

    The judges are good, especially Roseanne.

    It’s performing well because it has an excellent format. Now all they have to do is get rid of those skits that bombed for me.
    Keep the existing format, get rid of the skits and it’ll be okay.
