He's not just overshadowing them; he's making them virtually invisible". "None of that is Stern's fault, and he certainly deserves credit for putting some obvious effort into evaluating the acts and offering mostly constructive criticism. He does, however, need to find a way to deliver those evaluations in a more entertaining fashion, as Simon Cowell used to do on American Idol. Outside of one thrown-away "so to speak" double-entendre, broadcast's content restrictions seem to have stymied Stern's sense of humor." "And, tough as this may be, Stern needs to find a way to interact with his co-stars that does not come across as harsh and dismissive or ridiculously phony." "The low point came when host Nick Cannon complained about Stern making fun of him on his radio show. Stern responded by saying how "welcoming" and "wonderful" Cannon, Mandel and Osbourne had been to him — a non sequitur that sounded suspiciously scripted, as if some NBC executive had noticed how cold and chemistry-free the panel seemed the night before and had sought corrective action."
