- Got Talent
The Got Talent franchise is a British TV format conceived and owned by Simon Cowell's SYCOtv company. A pilot show was made in Britain, hosted by Paul O'Grady, but after O'Grady's split with ITV, the series was postponed, resulting in America's Got Talent - the first full series of the format. It has spawned spin-offs in 39 countries, in what is now referred to as the Got Talent format, similar to that described by FremantleMedia of the Idol format.
The Got Talent franchise is one of the fastest growing international franchises, closing the gap on other successful franchises such as The Weakest Link,The X Factor, Who Wants to Be a Millionaire?, Dancing with the Stars and Idol franchises, all of which also originated in the United Kingdom.
The Got Talent franchise was a British invention, with comedian and talk show host Paul O'Grady producing a pilot for ITV. O'Grady left the network after disputes with ITV, resulting in Simon Cowell, creator of the show, moving the concept to America while he and ITV searched for a new show host.
Due to these issues, the Got Talent franchise ended up debuting first on the NBC network in the United States on 21 June 2006, with judges David Hasselhoff, Brandy Norwood, and Piers Morgan. The show's original series was hosted by Regis Philbin. Most recently, the judging panel consists of Howie Mandel, Sharon Osbourne, along with Morgan, and is hosted by Nick Cannon. The grand prize on America's Got Talent is $1 million, and, since season 3, a chance to headline a show on the Las Vegas Strip. America's Got Talent proved extremely successful for NBC, pulling in high ratings in both total viewers and the younger 18-49 demographic. The show's initial success in America is credited with the eventual launch of the British series, and the overall global launch of the Got Talent franchise.
ITV eventually debuted Britain's Got Talent on 9 June 2007 with Cowell, Morgan and Amanda Holden as judges, and Ant & Dec as hosts of the show. Morgan stepped down after series 4 due to commitments hosting Piers Morgan Tonight on CNN. For series 5, Cowell only attended the live shows as he was busy launching The X Factor in America, so Michael McIntyre and David Hasselhoff joined the panel with Holden. McIntyre confirmed that he would not return for The top prize is at least £100,000, and a performance at the Royal Variety Show in front Queen Elizabeth II, and Prince Charles.
