As rumored, Stern will join Sharon Osbourne, Howie Mandel, and host Nick Cannon on the American version of the talent show competition that brought you the Sh’Boss Boys. (He’ll replace CNN personality and professional judger of things Piers Morgan.) For anyone wondering how on earth Howard Stern will make it through an hour of network television without running afoul of censors, consider that the foul-mouthed Osbourne has been managing it since season two. Plus, with Stern onboard, maybe the show will finally be edgy enough to feature acts like the lightbulb-eating dudes from India. America needs more edible lightbulbs.
