The pressure is on Howard because:Howard doing his late night shtick in his late night voice. There is real pressure on him, I suppose, to say something funny every time. I wish I could say something positive but I can't. Sharon's frozen face is scary. And what's with Howie Mandel grinning every second? Howard's hero Simon Cowell was brutally witty without yelling to the audience. Hopefully Howard will emulate his hero as time goes by. I admit I only watched s few acts.
1) NBC is wanting to promote their "new judge" and obviously, there's a ton of people tuning in to see "what he will say" (fans and enemies)
2) His fans want to see him steal the show's thunder.
The trick is to keep this "America's Got Talent" and not "America's Got Howard" or "The Primetime NBC Howard Stern Show".
