America's Got Talent is about to get much more entertaining. News has leaked that shock jockey Howard Stern might fill Piers Morgan's seat and become the talent competiton's newest judge starting next summer.
When Simon Cowell first announced he'd be leaving the show in 2010, Stern expressed interest in replacing him and told listeners of his Sirius satellite radio show that he would consider taking the gig if they paid him $100 million dollars. Despite his big money demands, reports claim that if Stern joined Howie Mandel and Sharon Osbourne at the judges tables he would make $15 million each year, which is still significant scratch, right?
To sweeten the deal, NBC is reportedly considering reloacting the show, which films in Los Angeles, to New York so that Stern could juggle his judging responsibilties with his radio show.
And while we're surprised Stern would consider a gig as wholesome as America's Got Talent, if he makes the judge's table, we might actually have an excuse to tune in. Plus, as Stern puts it: "There's not a better job on the planet than judging a f---ing karaoke contest."
