Howard Stern Talks 'America's Got Talent': 'I'd Be Better Than the Hoff'
The shook jock also vowed that he wouldn't "curse like a raving lunatic" on the broadcast show, but said he is not currently negotiating to replace Piers Morgan as a judge on the NBC talent series.
NEW YORK - Howard Stern is not currently negotiating with NBC's America's Got Talent to replace Piers Morgan as a judge, the shock jock told the New York Post's Page Six.
"I think I’d be better than the Hoff [David Hasselhoff], but who knows?," the paper quoted him as saying at this week's New York premiere of The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 1. "But now, there’s nothing to report about it.”
Added Stern: “No one’s told me anything. I heard that they want me for the job . . . I’m honored that they would consider me.”
Asked if he would be able to stay away from the cursing and edgy comments, which he is known for, on a broadcast show, Stern said: “Listen, I’m not insane. If I were on a network television show, I wouldn’t curse." He added: “I’ve been on David Letterman. I don’t go on and curse like a raving lunatic. You broadcast for whatever is appropriate.”
The Parents Television Council (PTC) this week urged NBC not to "abandon and offend its family audience" by hiring Stern.
The Sirius XM Radio star also reiterated that he is a fan of the NBC show. "America’s Got Talent is a great show," he told the Post. "I love watching the show, I’ve been watching it from the beginning."
