Radio superstar Howard Stern has agreed to appear for a second season on NBC’s "America’s Got Talent," reports Newsday. Stern informed listeners to his radio show this morning that he will be returning to "AGT" in part because he enjoyed his time on the show.
"I’m very, very excited, honestly, about going back to ‘America’s Got Talent.’ I’m very excited to be working again with [executive producer] Simon Cowell and NBC and all the various folks who work there,” Stern said.
While Stern is set, the other two judges are still up in the air. Howie Mandel has not signed on yet and Sharon Osbourne has definitively announced that she would not go back after her dispute with the network.
Stern wasn’t sure who the new judges might be, but offered this comment: "If I don’t like the new judge, I’ll hit the ‘X’ [buzzer] on the judge while they’re talking. I’ll be like, ‘Shut up, no one wants to hear from you.’ Believe me, if I was the only judge, I think the show would be terrific. You don’t need the other judges, but all right. I gotta to learn to play with others."
