Simon Cowell Talks Howard Stern and 'America's Got Talent'

by Catherine Lawson, posted Nov 25th 2011 9:00AM
Ever since Piers Morgan quit the 'America's Got Talent' judging panel rumors have swirled about his possible replacement, and one name that keeps coming up is shock jock Howard Stern. He recently addressed the rumors and reiterated that he's a huge fan of the show, but wouldn't comment on whether he was involved in ongoing negotiations with NBC.

This week the 'New York Post' published a report alleging that Stern's agreed to join the show if certain conditions are met. Such as paying him a whopping $20 million and moving the show from Los Angeles to New York. The 'Post' quotes a source close to the show as saying that 'AGT' boss Simon Cowell is "hellbent" in landing Stern, and that "The talk on the production is that it's practically a done deal."

For his part, Cowell told 'Access Hollywood' that he's a fan of Stern but that nothing's been signed: "I like him. There's a lot of people who make decisions on this stuff. Money's got to work, schedules [have] got to work. There might be a few twists and turns still."

Howard Stern is adding fuel to the fire that he may be in talks to join 'America's Got Talent' as a replacement judge for Piers Morgan. On his Sirius XM radio show, Stern addressed the rumors and re-iterated that he's a huge fan of the show, but wouldn't comment on whether he was involved in ongoing negotiations with NBC.

"I love the show ... I think it's the greatest, and I would be certainly honored to sit with Howie and Sharon and judge these lunatics," Stern said. He then leveled a critique at the show. "If I was a judge on that there, there would be no nonsense whatsoever ... If I was on there, the guy who won last year, whose name I can't even remember [Landau Eugene Murphy Jr.], he would never have won," Stern said.

Simon Cowell, Mezhgan HussainyRumors that Simon Cowell's relationship with fiance Mezhgan Hussainy is on the rocks are totally false, a rep for the 'X Factor' impresario confirmed recently.

According to our pals at AOL Music, Cowell's spokesperson Max Clifford said the pair is "as close as ever," and that the brunette woman he was allegedly spotted on a date with is a total mystery.

"This British brunette is such a mystery, even Simon doesn't know who she is," Clifford said on the British TV show 'This Morning.' "I'm afraid there is no truth in it. It's nonsense. I have spoken to Simon today about this tale and there is no mystery woman. Simon and Mezhgan are as close as ever."

Howard Stern, 'Late Night with Jimmy Fallon'Howard Stern came onto 'Late Night' (Weeknights, 12:37AM ET on NBC) to announce that he was done with late night talk shows. If he's to be believed, this was his last appearance ever on any of them.

"It's a lot of pressure to come out here," he told Jimmy Fallon. "What, I've got to prove myself to you? I mean come on, really."

Stern then offered Fallon, as the new kid in late night, some advice. "If they tell you they want to give you 'The Tonight Show,' smack them in the head," he said. He went on to explain about what a cushy job 'Late Night' is.

Howard Stern Wants to Give Charlie Sheen His Own Satellite Radio Channel (VIDEO)

Howard Stern's vision for Charlie Sheen, 'Jimmy Kimmel Live'Through the wonders of television technology, Howard Stern was again able to appear on 'Jimmy Kimmel Live' (Weeknights, 12AM ET on ABC) without the bother of having to fly there. The pair have used green-screen magic for interviews before, and it remained almost seamless.

This time, Stern was on to explain his ideas for what to do with Charlie Sheen now that he's running out of places to do interviews, and 'Two and a Half Men' is still done for the season. Stern has feelers out to Sheen with an offer to be a part of one of Stern's Sirius radio stations.

"We want to put a microphone in your house," he said. "Anytime you feel like going on the radio and doing a radio show, we'll break into our programming and you can have control of the airwaves ... Charlie Radio 24 hours a day, because there's nothing better than that."

Update: It appears this may actually be happening. Sirius just announced it's launching a 24-hour all-Sheen channel called 'Tiger Blood Radio.' Sheen is not officially affiliated with the station, but would anyone be surprised if he graced the new channel with an interview or seven? Actually, he'll probably be hosting by Tuesday. That's what we call #winning.

Howard Stern was the guest on 'The Daily Show' (Weeknights, 11PM ET on Comedy Central), where the topic of discussion inevitably turned to Charlie Sheen.

"Who is more insane: Charlie Sheen or Glenn Beck?" Stern asked Stewart.

"It's an interesting comparision," Stewart responded. "I'm going to go with -- and again, people may be surprised by this answer -- I would go with the guy whose skin you could flake off and smoke like crack. I'm going to go with Charlie Sheen."

Howard Stern Apologizes to Letterman, But Bashes His Super Bowl Commercial With Leno (VIDEO)

Howard Stern, 'Late Show with David Letterman'Howard Stern has made a career out of saying whatever he wants and making virtually no apologies for any of it. However, his conscience got the better of him when it came to David Letterman. So, on 'Late Show' (Weeknights, 11:35PM ET on CBS), Stern made a genuine apology to Letterman for something that happened many years ago.

Early in both of their entertainment careers, Letterman used to call Stern at home. Stern would then talk about those conversations on his radio show, which upset Letterman at the time and led to the phone calls stopping.

"I really want to apologize to you for doing that," Stern said sincerely. "And if you should call me again, I would not reveal what you said."

Howard Stern pulled no punches when talking about Jay Leno on 'Piers Morgan Tonight' (weekdays, 9PM ET on CNN.)

"Jay is insane, and Jay is a crook, and the whole world knows what he is up to," Stern told Morgan. "He steals a tremendous amount of material, he's not fit to scrub David Letterman's feet."

Morgan followed up Stern's diatribe by asking him his opinion on what happened between Leno and Conan O'Brien at NBC.

Robin Quivers Gets a Shot at Baseball Redemption on 'Jimmy Kimmel' (VIDEO)

Robin Quivers Gets a Shot at Baseball Redemption on 'Jimmy Kimmel'It was a good night for 'The Howard Stern Show' on 'Jimmy Kimmel Live' (weeknights, 12AM ET on ABC). Previously, Gary Dell'Abate (a.k.a., "Baba Booey" -- the show's producer and unofficial mascot) played a game of catch with Kimmel. And it went badly. How badly? Bad enough that Mr. Booey hit an audience member in the head with a baseball.

That wasn't the worst part. Baba Booey was already trying to recover from one of the greatest televised baseball disasters ever. The producer threw the ceremonial first pitch at a Mets game -- and missed home plate by about fifteen feet.

Clearly, the 'Howard Stern' cast needed a baseball "do-over." So Howard's co-host Robin Quivers tried to see if she could put things right. But would she end up "throwing like a girl," so to speak?

'Baba Booey' Hits a 'Kimmel' Audience Member in the Head With a Baseball (VIDEO)

'Baba Booey' Hits a 'Kimmel' Audience Member in the Head With a Baseball Gary Dell'Abate is a native New Yorker, and a lifelong New York Mets fan. And Gary got the chance of a lifetime ... twice. Well -- make that three times, including his appearance on tonight's 'Jimmy Kimmel Live' (weeknights, 12AM ET on ABC).

Mr. Dell'Abate -- better known as "Baba Booey" to fans of the Howard Stern radio show -- threw out a first pitch at a Mets game about four years ago, and that went just fine. So his lifelong dream was fulfilled! Maybe just stop right there, then! It's probably better not to tempt fate. Because "Baba Booey" then threw out another first pitch last year -- and it was one of the worst moments in televised baseball history.

Gary Dell'Arte Talks 'Howard Stern Show' Future on 'Late Show''The Howard Stern Show' has only 22 shows left on its contract with Sirius XM, revealed executive producer Gary Dell'Abate (aka "Baba Booey") when he visited the 'Late Show' (weeknights, 11:35PM ET on CBS).

What's next for the iconic radio program? It's anyone's guess. "They've been in contract negotiation for a year," said Dell'Abate. "It's gotten to that weird place where, if I come in dressed up, everyone thinks I'm going on a job interview."

"Howard represents himself in these negotiations, and he pretty much does it on the air," joked David Letterman. The host shared his theory: Stern won't be going anywhere, because only satellite radio can afford him.

George Takei on 'The Big Bang Theory,' Being Revealing with Howard Stern, and William Shatner (Naturally)

by Joel Keller, posted Oct 13th 2010 3:00PM
George Takei and Katee Sackhoff worm their way into Wolowitz's fantasies on 'The Big Bang Theory' on CBSWhen I called George Takei for our scheduled interview on Monday, he was about to leave for the airport to go to New York. But he wasn't coming to do a week's stint as the "announcer" on Howard Stern's satellite radio show, a place where he's been revealing intimate secrets about himself and his husband Brad Altman for the last four years.

No, he was in New York to stage a reading of 'Allegiance - A New Musical,' a musical he developed about the plight of a group of Japanese-Americans that were held in internment camps during World War II. Much of the musical is based on personal experience, as Takei and his family were interned during this time."It was really one of the most scary days that' I've experienced in my life," he told me. "People say, you know, you were 5 years old. But you know, when soldiers with bayonets on their rifles order you out of your home, and my mother was crying, you know, a child doesn't forget that."

He is trying to get enough funding to mount the production on Broadway. In the meantime, though, Takei is continuing to pop up on our TVs. The main reason why I called Takei was to discuss his guest appearance on 'The Big Bang Theory' tomorrow night (8PM ET on CBS), which seems like it would be a match made in television heaven.

Robin Quivers Defends Gabourey Sidibe Comments Made on 'Howard Stern' (VIDEO)

Howard Stern's sidekick Robin Quivers appeared on 'The Wendy Williams Show' (weekdays, syndicated) and defended comments she and Stern made that 'Precious' actress Gabourey Sidibe would have a difficult time succeeding in Hollywood due to her weight.

"The young lady has a major problem with weight. An actor's body is a part of their instrument. You have to be able to fit yourself into a role. She happened to be perfect for 'Precious,' but how many roles are there like that in Hollywood? That's the first thing. The second thing is everybody can see she has a major problem, and nobody wants to address it," Quivers said.

'Saturday Night Live' Doesn't Think Gabourey Sidibe Is Too Fat

Gabourey SidibeIt's interesting that in E! Online's announcement about 'Precious' star Gabourey Sidibe being asked to host an upcoming episode of 'Saturday Night Live,' their writer referenced a couple of disrespectful quotes Howard Stern had made about Sidibe in early March. Stern makes a living by saying things that push the envelope of good taste, but these words seem to have resonated a bit more than usual.

"There's the most enormous, fat black chick I've ever seen," he said. "She is enormous. Everyone's pretending she's a part of show business and she's never going to be in another movie." He even took on Oprah Winfrey, who's certainly no stranger to weight struggles or lasting success. "Oprah's another liar, a filthy liar. She's telling an enormous woman the size of a planet that she's going to have a career."
