If “America’s Got Talent” were produced by Harvey Weinstein instead of Simon Cowell, what would befall the hit program?
Would a hole be blown in Monday nights (during the season)?
In France, that’s become a real question.
“La France a un incroyable talent” — the French version of “AGT” — stopped the current season after Canadian judge Gilbert Rozon became the center of allegations of sexual harassment and abuse from at least nine women in a piece published by Le Devoir, reports the New York Daily News.
“M6, the network that airs the series, said in a statement that they wouldn’t air the program on its regularly scheduled premiere date of Oct. 26 because of the fundamental values of the program,” the Daily News said. “In a statement, they also said they were not judging the truth of the claims.”
Wikipedia noted: “In 1998, Gilbert Rozon received an unconditional discharge from the Quebec Superior Court after pleading and being found guilty of a sexual assault on a 19-year-old woman…. He was also accused of unlawful confinement of a 31-year-old woman but the charge was withdrawn by the police for lack of evidence.”
