Terry Fator's No Dummy
So, in the end, the judges on NBC's America's Got Talent decided they liked the guy with the dummy better than the guy who sang reggae-tinged covers of creaky pop hits. Sorry, Cas Haley -- looks like Dallas ventriloquist Terry Fator is the million-dollar man, and, well, there's little doubt the ghosts of Edgar Bergen and Shari Lewis are so very, very proud. Here's a clip from last night's show -- and a story about his victory from The Times in the U.K., where the writer believe that Fator bears "a striking resemblance to The Office's David Brent." C'mon now. --Robert Wilonsky
