Howard Stern Slams Jimmy Fallon Replacement Rumors

by at . Comments

It's safe to say Howard Stern will not be replacing Jimmy Fallon at 12:35 a.m. on NBC.

Following rumors that Stern would take over for Fallon - after Fallon moved over to The Tonight Show upon Jay Leno's retirement - the America's Got Talent judge slammed that talk on his Sirius talk show this week.

Stern, Howard

"What an insult," the shock jock said Monday. "Like, all the years of my career. I'm like, the biggest guy in radio. I've done film. I've done television…I mean, they act like I'm some kind of f--king beginner or something...

"Maybe if I'm really nice to NBC they'll let me take over Carson Daly's show at like 2 o'clock in the morning."

The New York Post broke the story this month that NBC is "grooming" Stern to become a late-night talk show host, but Stern laughed at Fallon's salary being "about a tenth" of his radio deal and scoffed at all the chatter.

But he also admitted any publicity is good publicity.

"I want to keep it going," he quipped.
