Howard Stern on 'America's Got Talent'?

The "King of all media" addresses the rumor.

Howard Stern on ‘America’s Got Talent'?

 Show business has become a game of musical chairs lately. Who is going to replace Regis? Who will replace Eddie Murphy at the Oscars? Well, we know the answer to that one. It’s Billy Crystal.

Last night in his monologue David Letterman also declared that Crystal would take the place of Joe Paterno.

Who knew there would be a fuss about who would replace Piers Morgan on America’s Got Talent? An early favorite: Radio rowdy Howard Stern.

The media instigator addressed those rumors on his show this morning. Watch and learn.

The surprising part: how enthusiastic Stern is about this craptastsic program. "I love the show,” he says. “ I think it's the greatest, and I would be certainly honored to sit with Howie and Sharon and judge these lunatics.” Honored? Really?

The part about not commenting on negotiations? I think Stern is just keeping that door open a crack in case the producers of AGT want to throw ridiculous sums of money at him.

My personal opinion? Bring back the Hof.
