    O&A called it today. Stern has the best publicist in the radio business. Everything that happens has Stern in the conversation. Americal Idol? Tonight Show? Larry King Live? Late Show? Stern is somehow mentioned in all of them as a new potential host.

    There are so many revolving doors in NBC's late-night lineup right now that the latest rumors add up to such a stretch that they're almost good enough to be true: When Jay Leno gets replaced by Jimmy Fallon on The Tonight Show sooner than expected, Fallon could cede the Late Night desk at 12:35 a.m. to none other than the self-proclaimed "king of all media," Howard Stern. It's a chair first occupied by a jerky young Dave Letterman, but it's within the realm of possibility... sort of.
    RELATED: Jay Leno's Days Hosting 'Tonight' Are Numbered
    That's according to a report from New York Post TV critic Linda Stasi, who claims Stern is being "groomed" by NBC to replace Fallon once the former Saturday Night Live star gets called up to the big chair. The Hollywood Reporter reported over the weekend that we could see a Leno-to-Fallon handoff announcement as early as this May, with Fallon taking over Tonight with a soft launch in Summer 2014, followed by a full turnover in the fall. The reported logic behind the Jay-to-Jimmy move is that Leno is losing ground in the coveted 18-34 demographic to the slightly edgier Jimmy Kimmel over at ABC. The move could also be about money: Leno is freaking expensive. And, as Grantland's Joe Reid pointed out, Fallon and Leno joked about getting the boot at the Golden Globes last year:
    RELATED: Jeff Zucker: Conan/Jay Fiasco Was 'My Responsibility'

    RELATED: Jay Leno Takes a Pay Cut to Save 'Tonight Show' Jobs
    So, all of that movement would leave Fallon's Late Night spot open for the taking. There is no obvious in-house NBC host that the network has been grooming for the late-late-night spot, unless you count Carson Daly, whom NBC has been grooming since 2002. And we know Conan's not coming back. But would NBC splurge on giving Stern on another nighttime outlet? Would it be too much of a risk on all sides? Let's dream a late-night dream:
    RELATED: Laughter Kills in the GOP Field
    [h=3]Stern's radio show would be demanding on his schedule — and in general.[/h]This is probably the biggest thing holding back the 59-year-old Stern from even being interested in theLate Night gig: He would have to juggle his radio schedule with his late-night taping schedule. He already does his show for Sirius three days a week, for four hours a day, live, starting at 6 a.m. He wouldn't have to start a late-night taping at NBC studios until sometime around 5:30 p.m., but he'd have to show up at another office at some point, and there would probably be some sort of pre-interview process and a little more writing than Stern's free-wheeling morning schtick. Schedules are one thing, but no one tells Howard Stern how to run his show, and a variety hour at that hour might be a little taxing on a guy who doesn't need more overexposure.
    RELATED: Stephen Colbert Got Radiohead to Loosen Up, Briefly
    [h=3]Stern's a little too old for NBC's target demographic — especially at stoner hour.[/h]Let's face it: Despite his huge following among key demographics, Stern is old. Like, he's almost 60 years old. He's almost a senior! Conan wasn't even 30 when he took over Late Night from Letterman, who was in his mid-30s when he started the show in place of The Tomorrow Show with Tom Snyder, who was always kind of old and boring. For a network desperate to skew young again, it's a Jimmy Fallon world. Late Night is the show meant to cater to the younger, stranger, more stoned comedic stylings of the 20-year-olds of the moments. Stern appeals more to their dads, or at least their slightly older cousins who are already listening to him in the car the next morning.
    [h=3]Stern's paycheck ain't gonna come cheap.[/h]After vanishing from terrestrial radio to negotiate a satellite contract where he could do and say anything for a ton of money, Stern remains signed with Sirius radio, where he has two dedicated channels, through 2015. The salary for his current deal is unknown, but his first contract signed in 2005 was worth $500 million, and the addition of Stern's show drastically boosted the service's subscriber numbers. When Stern signed on to judge NBC's America's Got Talent for another season —and they moved the show to New York specifically for him — they also paid him a rumored $20 million for a summer's worth of work. If NBC were to sign him for a full year's worth of Late Nightduty, even on his own terms and with weird guests and maybe a rambling monologue, Stern would likely command a ridiculous amount of money. Like more than Jimmy Fallon in the big slot.
    [h=3]But, despite all that, NBC seems to love the guy![/h]Sometimes love blinds the eyes from what seems obvious to everyone else, and sometimes NBC gets desperate. To network executives, especially the ones at NBC, Howard Stern is still Howard Stern. He's still the guy who commanded a regular audience of 12 million on terrestrial radio. "What we wanted to do was invest in the long-term future of the franchise," NBC reality chief Paul Telegdy toldThe New York Times before America's Got Talent aired. He's still one of the biggest draws out there, even though his addition to America's Got Talent didn't translate into a major ratings boost. "[A ratings increase] did not happen, though the series still performed well and NBC executives said the addition of Mr. Stern most likely prevented a sharp falloff in the show’s performance after many years as the summer’s only true ratings hit for network television" the Times' Bill Carter wrote after NBC announced Stern would return as a judge for a second season to air this summer. "Howard Stern's towering presence and opinions on last season's show as a new judge made a dramatic impact and added a sharper edge to the fascinating developments on stage," Telegdy said at the time. Infatuation can make people say and do funny things. So, who really knows? Maybe Stern is coming to Late Night. Maybe Letterman will return to NBC and his old chair. Maybe pigs will fly. Jimmy Fallon, who's been a guest on Stern each of the last two years and says he tunes in "whenever he can," will be listening intently — and comfortably. So will the king.

    The brainwashed Howard Stern crew probably believes it.

    This is not crazy. No one knows how long Robin will remain on show. Is she improving, will she make a full recovery. Howard can get out of his Sirius contract. Let's say NBC offers him $20 million a year+a production deal where could develop a game or talent show where he could make additional money. He wouldn't make as much as he did on Sirius but he could get up at a normal time and go out evenings with Beth. I would be shocked if renewed with Sirius at the end of his current contract anyway. Howard's ego is so big that he thinks his late night show would be better than anyone else's. His show would be radically different than the other shows because he wouldn't have a monologue.

    Maybe it is all bullshit but didn't we say the same thing when the rumors surfaced that he would be a judge on AI and finally ending up on AGT.

    He/112 pays for those mentions, or there's some side-marble "clandestine" deal worked out. Somebody mentioned that Stasi was on Howard's show to promote her book the week after she wrote an "article" about how Howard could save CNN. :rolleyes:

    There are mentions and then there's actually getting the gig.

    I think he used up his last drops of "fool them!" juice with his AGT deal.

    To keep things in perspective, let's not forget they just had to hire a model and park her next to him to counter-balance his ugliness. 1,000 Stasis can't change that fact.

    He's simply way too old and way too hideous for any network to consider giving him any kind of late-night talk show. Nobody "grooms" 59-year-olds.

    And if he's honest I'm sure he doesn't even want the gig. He just couldn't do it, physically or mentally, and he's got to know that. He probably just wants it known that he was "mentioned" for the gig..............even if he's the one that has to do/is paying for the mentioning.

    It goes back to my belief that he would rather die than disappear and be forgotten.

    Look for even crazier "mentions" as his fear and desperation grows.

    It's possible Howard has an in with someone in charge of late night decisions, but I can't see how any objective observer would think he's the key to grabbing the 18-34 demo.

    Here was my comment on the story on WarmingGlow.

    "Howard was funny about 15 years ago. Now he is a shell of his former self. He won’t say anything even the slightest bit controversial (interesting), he won’t make fun of anyone because his horse-face wife wants to rub elbows with celebs, and he no longer even rolls “off the cuff:. Pretty much everything on his show is pre-planned, rehearsed, unfunny garbage now. Howard is THE prime example of a rich, entitled Hollywood/Hamptons douche now. Please get someone else."
