    Howard claims that the American Idol producer, Nigel Lythgoe, who was just fired admitted he made a mistake not hiring Howard. Funny, I tried to Google both their names and not one single story. Perhaps Howard is right and Lythgoe had a huge golden parachute and he knew that if he hired ratings repellant Stern he could have retired a year early.

    I am surprised Team Buckwald didn't leak this "story" to the press rather than Howard have to say it on the air so Perez Hilton can pick it up.

    AMERICAN IDOL- Another played out crap show where every overrated winner sells like 10,000 records and then disappears. You can't even name the past winner for like the last 10 years.

    if they hired howard when he was bullshitting us about that possibility, american idol would have crashed and burned 3yrs earlier.

    nypost.com:"American Idol" producers are eager to hire Howard Stern to replace Simon Cowell as the show's tough-talking judge, sources tell Page Six.An insider said that producers of the hit Fox show say Stern, America's highest-paid radio personality, is their top choice to take over from Cowell, who leaves at the end of this season. They approached the King of All Media after he repeatedly mentioned on-air that his exclusive Sirius XM Radio deal expires next January and he was open...."

    Notice how the NY Post breaks all Stern related bullshit news. Why would a West Coast show like American Idol leak this stuff to a NY rag? At least in this story unlike the whole "NBC is grooming Howard for late night" BS story, he was able to convince them to leave out "a source close to Stern".
