David Hasselhoff quitting America’s Got Talent
After four seasons, America’s Got Talent judge David Hasselhoff is leaving the NBC reality competition for his own, as-yet-unannounced TV show.
In a bland statement to People, he said, “I am proud that I was part of making America’s Got Talent the No. 1 rated show for the past four summers. It’s been a rewarding experience and now I’m thrilled to be able to follow my dream to do my own TV show, which will be announced very shortly. I want to thank my friend, (executive producer) Simon Cowell, and everyone at NBC and Fremantle for the opportunity for four great years.”
NBC is playing nice, saying in a statement, “David’s been an integral part of the success of America’s Got Talent and we are sad to see him go. We wish him all the best with his new show.”
