    My 50 seconds on the Howard Stern Show (or why my husband is SO jealous of me)

    This was a big week in my house. On Sunday, while the fierce winds and rains were pummeling Chicago, I got a tweet from the famous Lisa G. of the Howard Stern Show inviting me to speak with her the next day. She wanted to interview me about the blog post I wrote about why I'm glad my two young sons are Howard Stern fans - thanks to watching him on America's Got Talent all summer long.

    I was thrilled with the opportunity to talk with the Howard 100 News host about my sons admiration of Howard Stern. But, boy was my husband jealous. He could not believe that I got to talk to Lisa G. - and now she has my direct line.

    My interview with Lisa G. was incredible. I shared my thoughts on how my husband and I were surprised how quickly our sons became enamored with Howard Stern. I also commented on how they attribute the strength of this year's finalists to "America's Judge." My interview was only a few minutes in length - and I enjoyed every minute of it.

    Things kept on getting better as the week went on - starting the very next day.

    On Tuesday, I saw a tweet that thrilled me once again. Howard Stern had officially announced that he was returning as a judge to America's Got Talentfor one more season.

    For months now, my sons have asked if Howard Stern will be a judge again next season. To them, Howard Stern is America's Got Talent, and there was no way to have one without the other. I could not imagine having to break the news to them if Howard Stern had decided not to return to the show. Lucky for all of us, that won't have to happen - at least for now.

    As soon as I saw that early morning tweet from the Howard Stern Show, I tweeted out one of my own:

    Later that day, while listening to a Howard 100 News segment, I heard my ecstatic tweet read on air by another Howard 100 News correspondent, Mike Hambrick. Having ensured its primarily PG content, I played it for my sons who then proceeded to yelp with joy and exchange enthusiastic fist bumps with me.

    To them, it wasn't so much that my tweet was read on air, but rather that Howard Stern was coming back to America's Got Talent. The news can never get old!

    We continued to relish in the good news of Howard Stern's return to America's Got Talent, which was regularly reported on during his weekly satellite radio show. After giving some of the Howard 100 News segments a parental preview, I played a few for my sons - including one with Heidi Klum's reaction to the news.

    Today takes the grand prize for the week.

    My brief interview with Lisa G. ran on air for just about 50 seconds. It was surreal and incredible, and once again my husband was jealous. Was his wife really on the Howard Stern Show - a radio program he's religiously listened to for more than 23 years?

    I guess I have to thank Howard Stern - and Lisa G. - for making my husband adore me even more and helping make two of Howard Stern's young fans two very happy boys.

    For now, we're going to relish in the glow of a fantastic Howard Stern-centric week and count down the days until America's Got Talent returns to the airwaves this summer.

    That article is so brutal. "Mommy bloggers" and their faggot sons saying things like...

    "Mommy! Mommy! Howard Stern just has to return. He is the show!"

    Just more confirmation that people aged 14 to 44 don't watch that shit.

    America's Got Talent: Why I'm glad my young sons are Howard Stern fans

    By Aimee Thompson, November 13, 2013 at 12:09 pm

    If you're kids are like mine, they picked out their Halloween costumes for next year before they even finished counting all the candy in their trick-or-treat bags. On Halloween eve, my younger son informed us he knew what he wanted to be next year: Howard Stern.

    I have to admit that I wasn't really surprised or bothered by it all all. Why? Because, for the last two seasons, Howard Stern has been a judge of one of our favorite TV shows - NBC's America's Got Talent.

    From his seat at the judge's table, Howard has helped coach young and old, expert and novice performers on to fame - and won over my two young sons.

    Growing up with Howard Stern
    My husband is a New Yorker and grew up listening to Howard Stern on the airwaves - even before he made the move to satellite radio. These days, he's the one constant on his hour-long commutes to and from work in the suburbs.

    I was introduced to the radio host by my husband, and I grew to love the sweet, family man after watching the 1997 movie Private Parts.

    When Howard Stern announced he was joining America's Got Talent as one of its hosts back in 2012, he could immediately count my husband and I as new fans of the show - and we eagerly tuned into its twice-weekly broadcasts all summer long.

    This summer, we invited our two young sons to watch it, too. And, not surprisingly, they quickly became enamored with the talent show and its four judges - especially Howard Stern.

    Howard Stern kid magnet?
    While we would never let our sons listen to Howard Stern's satellite radio show given its X-rated content, we gladly let them watch him and his fellow judges, Howie Mandel, Heidi Klum and Mel B (go Spice Girls!) on America's Got Talent.

    Howard Stern was on live television, being watched my millions, and seemed to always be on his "best" behavior, and we were glad to be able to use the show as a more PG way to introduce our sons to the self-proclaimed "King of all Media."

    From just watching the auditions, our sons began to quote Howard Stern's comments from the reality show in their conversations with us and imitate some of his mannerisms - even the hand motions he did when he was introduced to the audience at the opening of America's Got Talent.

    Yes, Howard Stern can teach kids a thing or two, too
    Just a few shows into the season, our sons began to take notice that Howard was the one judge who most often spoke the truth - even if it was hard for the contestants to hear and bear after completing a less than stellar performance.

    Even at a young age, they became enamored with Howard - and that's okay with me.

    Howard is a successful family man who has biting humor and wit. He stands behind his gut instincts and doesn't succumb to popular notions or opinions - even when it goes against the sentiments of his fellow judges.

    While our sons are too young to get all of that, I think it's good for them to see a strong example of someone who stands 100 percent behind who and what they are and tries to help others fulfill their hopes and dreams - with some helpful criticism thrown in, of course.

    What would it take to get Howard Stern up on his feet?
    Despite the fact that hundreds (or even thousands) of people were cut from America's Got Talent, the show still managed to inspire my sons to find and cultivate their own talents - no matter what they may be.

    Even months after this season's winner was announced, my sons are still talking about what "talent" they should practice for next year's auditions. And, they're encouraging their friends to join them in their pursuit of the much-sought after America's Got Talent title and prize. And, why shouldn't they?

    This year, the top six finalists include a comedian, a magician, two singers, a dancer, and an opera-singing quartet. So what's to stop two bilingual, soccer-loving, Pokemon-adoring, young boys from Chicago from hitting it big, too? They are reaching for the stars - and I am sure not going to get in their way.

    So, as they continue to prepare for their turn in the spotlight, I encourage them to ask themselves what Howard Stern would think of their budding talents. What helpful criticism would he offer? What would they need to do to better themselves in hopes of getting the 6-foot-5-inch judge to get up on his feet and applaud.

    A plea for Howard Stern to return as a judge next year
    For us, the America's Got Talent buzz is still alive and well - even after this season's winner was chosen.

    Just the other week, my family took a road trip to Merrillville, Ind. to see America's Got Talent Live. Even without the show's host, Nick Cannon, and its four judges here with them in the midwest, our sons loved every single minute of the live show. It was an amazing night, and it showed them once again what you can achieve if you reach for the stars - and make it into the hearts of Americans.

    So now, my family sits and waits for the next season of America's Got Talent, and my husband and I encourage our sons to continue to dream big. And, of course, we wait anxiously for Howard Stern to announce his return to the judges table next season.

    While I'm sure Howard Stern isn't losing sleep over how he'll win over the under 10-year-old market, I want him to know that he's done good. He's got two fans who can learn a lot and be inspired by someone primarily known for being censored over the radio airwaves.

    Howard Stern has helped to create a program that can be enjoyed by families, and can inspire people of all ages to dig deep, practice hard, listen to criticism and proud of who are and what you can stand to accomplish - no matter what it is.

    Howard shouldn't be around those kids, Robin, I could say more but I won't.

    Are these the kids that run up to uncle Howie at Applebees and sit on his lap?

    You really think so? You think is a Buchwald special to push Stern as good in the children and mother demographics?

    there's no other explanation for this over-the-top ass kissing. it's one of the most nauseatingly sycophantic poorly written dick sucking pieces of shit i've ever read.
    or she's related to howard or beth. it's our job to make sure the truth is told.
