Howard held up the ratings for ‘AGT’s’ premiere on Monday: “We didn’t beat [the season finale of] ‘Dancing with the Stars.’ We were 2nd place. … [but] we came in number one with 18 to 49-year-olds.” Howard resolved to do better: “We’re going up against their finale. And like I said to you, what I predict will happen is: the show will grow every week. We had over 10 million viewers [on Monday]. We’ll be the number one show by the summer, just like always. … It will be the number 1 show.”
