Howard Stern Returning to ‘America’s Got Talent’


Howard Stern broke big news this morning on his Sirius radio program that he’s decided to come back for a third season as a judge on “America’s Got Talent”.

This is tremendous news for the NBC variety show competition because the show would have been hard pressed to replace Stern. If he had left then the show might have had to clean house, and start over with the judge chairs. The one change I could see the show making is getting rid of either Heidi Klum or Mel B. It really doesn’t matter which one, but the show should go back to three judges and not four without skipping a beat.

By adding a fourth judge the show cut down on the amount of time Howard and Howie Mandel have to entertain us. Nothing will be lost if one of the foreign ladies is gone from the show. The real magic is when Howard and Howie are going at each other. There wasn’t one moment of the past season when having four judges felt necessary. With Stern back the show will retain its edge, and be a great spot for aspiring comedians.

    Why is a no talent, involved in a talent show? Stern, you are a relic.
