Has Grown disappointing to watch over the years
The show when it first started was okay, it was something that was enjoyable to watch, but over the years the show has declined so much at times I admit I find the show unbearable to watch. It has become nothing but sob stories every episode and with almost every act. Most acts that make it through rarely had the talent or potential to become a great act and simply passed due to their sob story. Worse some of the sob stories that are told turn out to be false, these types of acts take up spots for some of the other contestants that had actual talent. The Judges are very rude towards constants that don't have good acts, they tend to actually make fun of those acts or say rude things when dismissing them, Mel comes off as very shallow and will pass certain acts if the one performing is "hot" but, fail the same type of act if the performer is not by her terms "hot". This show has grown from a good one with good judgement to a show that is shallow, rude and not one set out to find talent, but a show of who has the better sob story. I don't really think the show is worth watching, you could even miss half the season and watch the last 2 episodes and basically miss nothing. The language, while the swearing is censored, some of the mild things they say are not very appropriate for an age 9 audience. The show is not rated properly and personally I would put it at about 14-15 years of age not 9 years of age even more so with how bad the show has gotten from the 1st season to now.
