The talk over the weekend was that America’s Got Talent was going to have a new judge in Howard Stern. With the leaving of current judge Pierce Morgan, it was said that Howard Stern was in negotiations with America’s Got Talent to replace Pierce on the show.
This morning on the Howard Stern Show a caller brought up the question and asked Howard, “Will you be joining America’s Got Talent?” Howard went in to discuss that while he is happy that every time once of these judge shows has a change, Howard’s name gets thrown into the ring. He also said that if he was to join America’s Got Talent there would be no more funny business and he would set things straight ie if he was on the show the guy who won last year would have had no chance of winning.
A couple of funny things though:
-Howard mentioned while there is no deal in place, he stated that he would not comment on negotiations. He never comments on negotiations because they can always go horribly wrong.
-News about Howard joining America’s Got Talent came up after Pierce Morgan announced he was leaving the show. No one was reporting about Pierce Morgan leaving, was there even an announcement? There was no talk about Pierce Morgan and America’s Got Talent until Howard’s name was leaked to the media.
I’m going to go out on a limb and say that Pierce Morgan himself leaked the Howard Stern name to the media in connection to America’s Got Talent. Pierce Morgan created the drama between himself vs Howard, when Pierce came to CNN he created a sense of false tension between The King of All Media and the King of UK Media. Whatever the truth may be, the America’s Got Talent TV show has gotten more media coverage this past week than it ever has had because of Howard Stern.
