    More Buchwald bullshit to create a stir around Howard:


    The Tinseltown rumor mill continues to run rampant with reports that the 2013-14 season will be Jay Leno’s last at the “The Tonight Show,†potentially to be replaced by popular NBC comedian Jimmy Fallon.
    However, an inside source tells FOX411’s Pop Tarts column that there’s another famous funnyman in the running for the top job.
    “Howard Stern. They love him at NBC and ‘America’s Got Talent’ is doing really well,†said the source. “He’s very self-censored, so it works well. And let’s face it, Howard Stern would be great at it – and I can’t imagine that he wants to do radio forever.â€
    Self-described as the “King of All Media,†the long-time radio personality joined the NBC television family when he replaced Piers Morgan on the “America’s Got Talent†judging panel in 2012. He recently announced that he was returning to the show for the 2013 season.
    And according to at least some entertainment industry experts, giving Stern a spot on the couch is simply genius.
    "Stern’s a fascinating option: he’s an iconic broadcast personality with a huge following and he’s an incredibly skilled, fast on his feet interviewer, which may make up for some deficiencies when it comes to the traditional monologues and scripted comedy kits of late-night talk shows," said Hollywood pop culture reporter, Scott Huver. "He’s proven he can clean up his notoriously crass radio act for television, and Stern would probably be wise to leave the porn stars, strippers and freak show sidekicks largely behind him – but he could get a lot of comedy mileage out of a ‘reformed bad boy’ approach. Making things even more interesting, Stern has been outspoken about his personal disdain for Leno in recent years, refusing to make nice after they became network-mates."
    Entertainment writer, Mikey Glazer, too gave Stern the thumbs up.
    “Heck yeah, it would work. The industry loves Sterns interviews. They're utterly compelling. His E! Show was the longest running show in E! history and highest rated thing on the channel at the time, aired in the same time slot (late night) and was him doing celeb interviews that totally worked,†he enthused.
    Although Glazer is skeptical that the cutthroat, routinely raunchy comedian would even take on the task.
    “Howard is very friendly with Jimmy Kimmel, and they'd be going head to head. Kimmel hosts barbeques and parties for him when he comes to LA,†Glazer added. “He would have to be in LA, as I'm not sure NBC would ever move the Tonight Show to NYC. Lastly, he doesn’t need the stress of carrying a show himself.â€
    Reps for Stern and NBC did not respond to a request for comment. NBC had previously referred to reports that Leno would retire and Fallon would fill his shoes as “categorically false,†and a rep for Leno declined to comment on speculation.
    Would Howard Stern be a good "Tonight Show" host? Let us know what you think on our FOX 411 Facebook page[​IMG]

    There's more comedy in this article than on the HSS - AGT doing very well, Howard's huge following and his compelling interviews? Howard and Don have no shame - I can't believe anyone would buy this.

    At that time, 72% of respondents were familiar with Stern. By grading him on a four-point scale, they produced a “positive Q†of 9 and a “negative Q†of 64. “That’s seven times more turn-off than turn-on,†says [company president Steven] Levitt.

    :lol:

    Even Stern fans could potentially stay away from the show. America’s Got Talent in a pretty wholesome show. Stern, who has enjoyed an incredible amount of freedom on his Sirius show, will have to rein it in for network television. What fan wants to see a muzzled Stern? The radio star rallied against limitations for years when he was on terrestrial radio.

    :lol:

    Those lines just scream planted article - no one showed up for the NoLa auditions, the show lost 30% of it's 18-49 audience last year and they hired two new judges to dilute Howard's presence yet they love him and the show is doing great.

    Howard on the Tonight show could be hilarious: for all the wrong reasons.
    Imagine his face during the opening monologue.
    The best interview in the business: How big is your cock? How much money? Anal?
    Having Beth sitt in the audience retard clapping for Howard.

    The amount of horse s**t flying around because of Team Buchwald is unbearable. Anybody familiar with how to read the ratings books for radio and tv would know that Stern would be a huge DISASTER on television period, let alone a franchise asset like The Tonight Show:facepalm::facepalm:

    Yet another "Howard going to late night" article written by a woman. That makes 4 in a row. Don't know what that exactly means but it's just an observation. I found the previous 3 on twitter & asked them clean, professional questions, never got a response. Lets see if Holly McKay is on twitter.
