    Finale was a 2.4 and all series have been down this season. I’ll go with a 2.9.

    3.3-3.4, it will drop from last season for sure, but the premiere should still show strong.

    3.1 but would not be surprised if much lower like 2.5.

    I want to know how this is going to work now. For its entire history, America’s Got Talent had three judges, and two nos would mean that you’re not moving on. Now they have four judges. Now two nos gives you a push. It’s confusing as to why they decided to go to a fourth judge.

    I think both show will be at 3.2%

    I think Howard mentioned that 3 No’s is out and 2 No’s means you’re moving on. I’m not 100% sure.

  • Michael

    The Voice results show: 2.9

    AGT: 3.4

    @Mark @Dondi
    During the auditions the contestants have to get the approvals of the majority of the judges. That means at least 3 yes’s to pass making it harder to pass to the next round than before. 2 no’s and 2 yes’s means the act is out.

    Everything else has been down but The Voice has been doing well. Then as NBC proved with Usher+Shakira, viewers may be interested to check out the new judges.

    And there’s nothing else on.

    3.1 – 3.5

    The last season was awful and I don’t see how the new judges are going to fix the problems with the show (Howard Stern, marginal ‘talent’ in the acts, Nick Cannon hogging the spotlight, etc). However, I can’t see the ratings taking a huge plunge or anything.

    I think it’ll get less than what the Voice gets, so <2.5
