NBC’s America’s Got Talent is joining the other top-tier talent competition series by launching a nationwide tour. I was actually surprised the show, which ranks as the highest-rated summer series, had not done it already: American Idol, Dancing with the Stars and So You Think You Can Dance have all featured tours from the get-go. And Talent‘s British counterpart, Britain’s Got Talent, has had a companion tour too. The debut America’s Got Talent Live tour, which kicks off Oct. 1, will be hosted by Jerry Springer, a one-time host of the reality series. Starting a tour after Season 5 might be a bit late in the life of a reality series – turnout for Idol tours has been on decline and several dates had to be canceled this year. But Talent still is No.1 for the summer and its tour won’t overlap with the others, which should work to its advantage.
