The only variety show left in America.
30 July 2015 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

I've read all the other reviews and agree with the most of the good and bad said about this show. The judges are obviously used for two reasons only: to draw out the time and try to help us connect emotionally. It's always a hit or miss. Often they just sound like they enjoy hearing the sound of their own voices. But they are worth their weight in pontificating syllables. The talent here is definitely varied. The other shows in this vein are all about singing or dancing only and that has gotten quite stale.

This show has talent of all varieties, and some you've never even imagined before. You never know if you are going to be assaulted with someone's idea of greatness or if you will be treated to something spectacular yet unassuming. This show has more "great" moments than those other shows combined, just check out some of the YouTube highlights. I highly recommend this show and hope that it can spark a return of variety shows such as The Carol Burnett Show and The Dean Martin Show. (I've seen them in reruns!)
