America's Got Talent, But Not The Hoff
NBC has announced David Hasselhoff is leaving America's Got Talent after four years on the show, reports People.com.
"It's been a rewarding experience and now I am thrilled to be able to do my own TV show, which will be announced very shortly." Hasselhoff said in his statement.
NBC has announced Howie Mandel, Canadian-born comedian, actor, and game show host will be taking Hasselhoff's place on America's Got Talent. Mandel is best known as the former host of NBC's Deal or No Deal. Howie himself has had a show in Vegas, and still performs there on a consistent basis, so he has the expertise to pass on to the contestants.
