America needs someone to crush its silly dreams, and Howard Stern is just the man to do it! With Piers Morgan moving on from NBC’s prime-time talent show America’s Got Talent, shock-jock Stern has been tapped to help kill the hopes of delusional tap-dancing jugglers everywhere as a judge. “Howard Stern’s larger-than-life personality will bring a thrilling new dynamic to America’s Got Talent starting this summer,” said NBC’s Paul Telegdy, adding, “Plus we all love seeing people almost cry on TV, right? Right?”
However, seeing as how SiriusXM host Stern has built his career around filthy jokes, porn-star interviews and filthy joking porn-star interviews, it comes as no surprise that some people wouldn’t want their kids watching him destroy mime magicians on NBC, as hilarious as it will probably be. “The once-proud broadcast network has lost its way and has made it clear it holds no concern whatsoever for children and families,” the Parents Television Council told TMZ in a statement. What do you think? Is hiring Stern a genius move, or will he be even more off-putting to watch than Gymkana, that AGT gymnastics group that caught on fire?
