    haha! smart. you can come back and edit, after reading the article Jon was too lazy to paste here for a change, and still be first.

    Howard Stern as an "America's Got Talent" judge.
    I knew he'd be funny and harsh (though a toned-down, prime-time-ready version of harsh), but I didn't expect him to be so damn sweet and genuinely supportive of contestants, both worthy and weird. Howard Stern, of all people, has brought warmth and charm to "AGT," effortlessly revitalizing a haggard franchise.

    Ironically, they love Howard for the same reason why much of his core audience has turned on him. Who wants a sweet, supportive, toned-down, warm, and charming Howard Stern?

    What I find funny about this is: that isn't what people want out of Stern. He's not supposed to be warm and charming -- he's ugly, old, and frightening to look at, people want him to channel that into the bitter, angry humor he became famous for. A Howard who isn't funny while being mean is just another regular guy, albeit a hideous guy.

    Err ... I was slow on the draw there, Rob0729 said what I meant earlier and more succinctly :)
