Is America ready for Howard Stern in prime time? “America’s Got Talent” kicks off a new season on May 14th with Howard as one of the new judges. I miss listening to him on the radio. I was hooked for years but I don’t drive any more in the mornings.
There’s no doubt in my mind that Howard will be a huge hit on this show, and it’s a great opportunity for him to be exposed again to a huge audience as his satellite radio show doesn’t have the reach of his syndicated radio show. Of course, he’ll still pocket $15 million per year even if he bombs, but I wouldn’t bet on it.
The video above is classic Howard, as he gets Letterman to discuss his feud with Jay Leno. Hopefully Howard can parley success with this new show into an interview show in the future. Nobody gets celebrities to open up more and address personal and hilarious topics like Howard.
