Critic Reviews for America's Got Talent Season 1

All Critics (5) | Top Critics (3)

It starts with a decent concept: What would you get if you crossed American Idol with The Gong Show? Yet somehow this completely misses the charm of either parent.

On the evidence, America does not got talent. It does, however, got a ton of America, and that's why the show's a hit.

Could be a modest little summer hit, continuing in the vein of cheerfully stupid unscripted fare into which NBC tapped with the no-skill-required gameshow "Deal or No Deal."

Top Critic

It often feels like a high-school talent show. But it has also evolved into a venue that allows for truly creative, inspirational performers that don't fit into conventional entertainment venues to shine.

Jan 29, 2020 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

The show is expertly put together by American Idol impresario Simon Cowell, among others. Judge David Hasselhoff, not a phrase I ever thought I'd use, vibrates at the same blurty frequency as Paula Abdul.
