Let’s talk about Tuesday night’s TV!

AMERICA’S GOT TALENT: This was a good group of contestants, and I appreciated that the format for the episode felt slightly out of whack…the Golden Buzzer wasn’t saved for the end (or even close to it) and it ended with a weird act. (Not my personal preference, but that’s fine.) It at least kept me on my toes.

Emotionally, I absolutely understand why Northwell Health Nurse Choir got the Golden Buzzer, though they were my second-favorite musical act of the night. Also, with the father-son comedians…I really hope the show doesn’t actually pit them against each other if they progress much further, because that feels unnecessarily cruel.

NEW AMSTERDAM: Oh, God, poor Iggy. As soon as he said the place was at 9th and 11th, I hoped Martin would be picking up a code and getting him help. I feel awful for him that he was not only put in that position, but cornered by his dangerous patient while he was sick. He’s had a tough year.

As much as I love Max—and as tragic as his failing was with the vaccines going to waste—it’s probably also occasionally good for him (and the show) for his well-meaning, ambitious ideas to stumble like this. This was a particularly cruel kick in the gut given what COVID has done to everyone, but the reality is, sometimes the best intentions aren’t the right approach, especially in a medical emergency.

    I told my daughter as soon as I saw the nurses that they would get the golden buzzer. I thought the magician was the best act of the night. I know the last act was dumb, but I laughed a lot.

    The magician was SO GOOD. I’m so curious to see how—and if—he tops that.
