Howie Mandel is replacing David Hasselhoff on America's Got Talent - TCA Report

Howie MandelIn amongst the Jay Leno questions at the NBC executive session, Jeff Gaspin was also asked to confirm that David Hasselhoff was indeed leaving America's Got Talent. Gaspin confirmed this, and he also gave this bit of news: Howie Mandel will replace him as a judge. This news has been floating around for a day or so, so this is confirmation from the big cheese himself.

Mandel, of course, is best known nowadays for hosting Deal or No Deal. That show, according to Gaspin, will continue in syndication, but there are no plans to bring back the primetime version anytime soon.

Having Howie has a judge could turn out to be really interesting. Howie is a comedian, he was in movies/tv shows, he is a game show host, and always has fun with the crowd even if he suffers from obsessive-compulsive disorder and mysophobia (fear of germs). He also knows how behind-the-scenes works both as a writer and a producer.

The only "bad" comment I can forsee from AGT fans is that the show will still be judged by non-US judges.
