Yesterday, NBC announced that Howard Stern would be joining America’s Got Talent as a judge, but was it a good move? Some folks are already in an uproar over Howard Stern joining the show, but Simon Cowell claims it is a good move. More after the jump!
Shock jock Howard Stern was officially announced as the newest judge on America’s Got Talent, after Piers Morgan announced that he would be leaving the series. The decision to add Howard Stern is already angering folks, including the Parents Television Council, who recently told TMZ.com that the decision is: “an act of desperation for a failing network.” And they did not stop there, as the PTC went on to add: “The once-proud broadcast network has lost its way and has made it clear it holds no concern whatsoever for children and families. Not coincidentally, in just over three weeks the network will be standing before the United States Supreme Court arguing for the right to use the F-word at any time of the day, even in front of children.”
But while some are upset, Simon Cowell and Howie Mandel are supportive of NBC’s decision to add Howard Stern, and Simon Cowell says it is a good move, and that if Howard does not behave on the show, he will be kicked off. Simon told TMZ.com though that he feels we have nothing to worry as he added: “He’s not stupid, this guy.” Meanwhile, fellow judge, Howie Mandel, reiterated Simon Cowell’s thoughts, and also told TMZ.com: “It’s ridiculous to think that he’s bringing the Sirius show to ‘America’s Got Talent’.”
