Simon Cowell is taking over the world's reality TV stage after 'Got Talent' rakes in highest ever viewing figures in Mongolia
Simon Cowell has conquered Mongolian TV with 'Mongolia's Got Talent'.
The 56-year-old music mogul - who also rolled out his popular talent show format in Afghanistan, Azerbaijan, Cambodia, Iceland, Mexico and Myanmar in 2014 - finally brought the show to Mongolia this year and raked in the country's highest viewing ratings ever, when a third of the population tuned in.
An insider told the Daily Mirror newspaper: "Simon is super-proud of the Mongolian show and the fact 'Got Talent' now seen on more or less every corner of Earth."
Simon's franchise has become the most successful reality TV show in the world, airing in 193 countries and watched by 500 million fans across the globe.
The news comes just a day after the music mogul announced he'll take a seat on the judge's panel of 'America's Got Talent', replacing Howard Stern on the show.
Simon said: "We've been talking about it for a few years, funny enough, me and NBC. This year ... everything worked. So it was perfect."
He also revealed he won't be diluting his typically harsh judging style when the show airs next year.
He said: "I'm not going to lie to people when I think they're hopeless, I just couldn't do that!
"But no, of course I'm not going to be rude for the sake of being rude. That would be ridiculous. I'll take it act by act."
