    After rumors that Jimmy Fallon may be replacing Jay Leno to compete with Jimmy Kimmel's younger audience, the NY Post quoted "insiders" as saying saying Howard Stern was being "groomed" to then replace Fallon.

    But Stern — who acts as a judge on NBC show "America's Got Talent" in addition to his super successful satellite radio show — was offended by the mere insinuation that he would fill the late-night gig.
    "First of all, what an insult, like, all the years of my career. I'm like, the biggest guy in radio, I've done film, I've done television," Stern exclaimed on "The Howard Stern Show." "I mean, they act like I'm some kind of f------ beginner or something. Maybe if I'm really nice to NBC they'll let me take over Carson Daly's show at like 2 o'clock in the morning."
    Not only did Stern think the rumor about himself was rude, but he also didn't appreciate the notion that NBC may be replacing Leno.
    "I was asking some of the [NBC] executives, when I was down there doing 'AGT' and I was like you guys don't respect Jay at all, do you? They go ‘We’re not firing him!’ That’s what they said to me, so I don’t know how any of this is true…I don't know. I want to say ‘no comment’. I want to keep it going.â€
    Stern then kindly pointed out that Fallon likely makes "about a tenth" of his own salary and sarcastically joked that he has also been hired to anchor "NBC Nightly News," as well as guest star on "Community," "Parks & Recreation" and "Whitney."

    "super successful satellite radio show". Don't these people use a fact checker.

    Howard comes off as a vomit and he doesn't realize it.

    Another article written by a women on this matter. The past 2 I found on twitter & asked them about Stern, neither responded. I'll look for this one and see if she'll respond.

    The only thing Howard is being groomed for is obscurity.

    The last line had to be a Benjy joke since Howard has likely never even heard of Community or Parks and Recreation.

    "Super successful show" is some unsubstantiated bullshit that comes from a publicist, not a journalist.

    I am so sick and tired of reading quotes like this. Nobody listens, it isn't successful, and it definitely isn't super. Get it right. NOBODY LISTENS ANYMORE.:mad:

    Howard really is completely useless and un-entertaining without the edge he used to have. His entire show and career anymore is filler, nothing less or more. Just hot air with NOTHING behind it

    It was definitely written by someone else because when Howard read it he said "Community Parks and Recreation" as if it was all the title of one show. He didn't pause at all after saying "Community", he doesn't know it's a separate show.
