Why is Howie Mandel absent from AGT?

Howie Mandel began judging on America’s Got Talent in 2010 after his hit show Deal or No Deal.

Over a decade later, season 17 aired with one noticeable difference, Mandel wasn’t in his usual judge’s seat.

The show began with host Terry Crews telling the audience, “Howie Mandel isn’t feeling well, so he won’t be here tonight.”

Instead, the audience and auditioners were told that the rules would change to require two “yes” votes to advance to the next round and three red buzzers would stop them.

No further explanation was given to the audience, but after the show aired on June 14, fans took to Twitter and expressed their concerns about Mandel’s absence.

One person wrote on Twitter: “Howie are you off for some of the taping? You’re not at the Urban Crews audition.”

Mandel replied to the fan and simply said: “I have Covid.”

Why isn’t Howie Mandel on AGT tonight?

America’s Got Talent episodes are pretaped before the first episode even airs.

Although Mandel has been appearing in episodes over the past few weeks, AGT fans noted that he was once again non-judgmental in the episode, which aired July 12.

This is because AGT episodes are not aired back-to-back, which means the episodes not starring Mandel were filmed the week he was off work due to illness.

In a tweet, Mandel confirmed his absence, writing, “Sorry #FANDels I’m not on @AGT tonight.”

Despite his absence from the episode, Mandel has kept up with the acts and took to Twitter to praise those who auditioned.

“Wish I could have been there to see #TravisJapan,” he wrote, and in another he posted a photo of the AGT host and the judges without him with the caption “Where’s Howie?”.

Where can I watch America’s Got Talent?

Viewers can catch America’s Got Talent every Tuesday night at 8 p.m. ET on NBC.

You can also stream the current season of AGT on fuboTV, Hulu and Peacock.

Past seasons can be viewed on Hulu, Spectrum TV, OXYGEN, Peacock TV, NBC, USA Network, Bravo, E! and SYFY can be streamed.

Cause Of Anne Heche'S Death Revealed By Los Angeles County Coroner

LOS ANGELES– Anne Heche’s death has been ruled an accident, caused primarily by smoke inhalation and fire after she was involved in a fiery car accident on August 5, the Los Angeles County coroner has determined. .

The county released Heche’s official cause of death on Wednesday, classifying it as “inhalation and thermal injuries,” while noting that she suffered a fractured sternum from blunt force trauma.

Heche’s date of death was August 11, when she was considered brain dead. His body was kept on life support until August 14, after a recipient for organ donation was found.

Heche’s Mini Cooper was traveling at high speed in the Mar Vista neighborhood of Los Angeles on August 5 when it apparently lost control, crashing into a house. The car slammed into the walls of the house, narrowly missing a resident inside and her pets, then burst into flames.

She was initially hospitalized in critical condition with a severe brain injury and fell into a coma after the accident.

The Los Angeles Police Department later said Heche had narcotics in his system at the time of the crash.

The woman living in Mar Vista’s house was not injured, but neighbors say she lost everything to the fire and accident. A GoFundMe page has been created to help.

Caretaker Of At-Risk Adult In Denver Faces Grievous Bodily Negligence Charge

A Denver man is facing a criminal charge of negligence causing grievous bodily harm for allegedly failing to provide for an intellectually and developmentally disabled man who was in his host’s home care.

Michael Hill, 40, faces the felony charge in an investigation that began in December 2019, according to a press release from the district attorney’s office.

The criminal investigation unfolded when Colorado Adult Protective Services contacted Denver police about the victim’s concerns, the statement said. A detective came to the house for a ‘wellness check’ and ‘found the victim naked and covered in feces’.

The victim was taken to a local hospital where staff found him severely malnourished and dehydrated, the statement said. Investigators suspect he did not receive prescribed medication properly while in Hill’s custody.

MLB Umpires Association, adamant that crews are just following the rule, addresses home plate collision rule in statement

Mlb Umpires Association, Adamant That Crews Are Just Following The Rule, Addresses Home Plate Collision Rule In Statement

CHICAGO — The Major League Baseball Umpires Association released a concise statement on Wednesday regarding the criticism umpires are receiving as a result of the home plate collision rule.

The rule has been a topic around the game after several video reviews recently resulted in overturned calls to home plate, including during Tuesday’s game between the Cleveland Guardians and the Detroit Tigers.

The statement, obtained by ESPN on Wednesday, reads, “It is the catcher’s responsibility not to position themselves in such a way as to block home plate without the ball.

“This rule change was enacted after Buster Posey was involved in a collision at home plate and suffered a serious leg injury. The Players Association and Owners have decided to protect their major assets (players) and have adopted the home plate collision rule that players are now complaining about.”

The umpires argue they’re just following the rule that’s on the books, the one the league sent a memo to teams on earlier this month. The memo was accompanied by illustrations and reminders of how and where a receiver can and cannot set up when receiving the ball from a defender.

“It’s simple: don’t block home plate without possession of the baseball or change the rule,” the umpire’s statement read.

The latest on-court controversy came early in the first inning Tuesday at Cleveland. Guardians receiver Austin Hedges caught a pitch from shortstop Tyler Freeman as Javier Baez slid home. Baez was called but the video review canceled the call, saying “the catcher didn’t give the runner a lane.” The Tigers scored three runs in the inning, beating the first-place Guardians, 4-3.

“First of all it cost the game,” Hedges said after the loss. “It’s a game that’s been called a few times recently and never really been called before. … There are home games that beat the runners and for 150 years you’re out. And now we let’s call a type of rule that’s really tricky to define.”

The video review has overturned eight home calls this season, the most since 2014 freshman teams could contest the call. The most recent have prompted teams to seek clarification from the league, which it has provided.

“Recently, we have seen seekers take advantage of runners they expect to slide while moving down the running lane without possession of the ball, in violation of Rule 6.01(i)(2),” reads the league memo. “Such conduct only invites runners to collide with receivers, causing potential injury to players in a way the rule was designed to prevent. Receivers cannot block runners’ path unless they are in possession of the ball or playing the ball.”

Referees say they feel caught in the middle, saying it’s not their job to call the blocking rule live, but to leave the video review to New York – which is handled by the current referees – s take care of it.

Their statement then extended beyond the home plate collision rule.

“It is also inaccurate to say that umpires in Major League Baseball are not held accountable. It is often said of our profession that ‘umpires are supposed to be perfect from the start and improve from there.’

“Like players, our mistakes are subject to intense public scrutiny and we are also held accountable by our employer in performance reviews. Although we don’t always know in real time if our calls are correct, we scrutinize them closely after the game and try to learn from all the mistakes.”
