America has talent, and a new reality show judge.

Following weeks of chatter, controversial radio host Howard Stern has officially been hired by NBC and will join the panel on America's Got Talent this summer.

“Howard Stern’s larger-than-life personality will bring a thrilling new dynamic to America’s Got Talent starting this summer,” said NBC alternative programming head Paul Telegdy. “He’s a proven innovator and his track record in broadcasting is truly remarkable. Howard is very passionate about this show and is fully committed to its future success.”

A spot opened up for Stern - who had also been considered for American Idol after Simon Cowell exited - after Piers Morgan dropped out, meaning he'll sit alongside Sharon Osbourne and Howie Mandell on the upcoming season. Should be interesting, that's for sure.

Are you excited for Howard Stern to judge America's Got Talent?


I think the country will be surprised at what those of us that listen to him regularly already know: He is a very intellegent and eloquent man that will take this job very seriously, and probably light the mainstream TV world on fire! And keep in mind I'm a mother and a wife, and know to sensor what my kids listen to. I think he will be the consummate professional. Just watch and see! Hey Noooooooooowwwwwww


Lord help us.. .we have scraped the bottom of the barrel to have Stern be ANY part of television. Regardless of whether he tries to use the F-word or not....The man is despicable. God protect our youth from Mr. Scumbag.


I was very displeased with this announcement. I was kind of interested in the show for the past few years, but now that Howard Stern is going to be a judge, I will DEFINITELY NOT be watching this show anymore!
