    Zap2it: You can be biting and have no compunctions about speaking your mind, yet you are very gentle with the people auditioning for "America's Got Talent." Why?
    Howard Stern: You can provoke people to just be mean. Over the last two seasons, it has been so accepting. They know they are safe here. We change people's careers -- Collins Key opening for Demi Lovato.

    Zap2it: It makes perfect sense for those with talent, but why do you let some people go on when there's no obvious talent?
    Howard Stern: You want to see where it goes. Howie [Mandel] and I have a debate. If you find a Tiny Tim, a loveable kook -- he was amazing. It's the nuance.

    Zap2it: There are a lot of strange, fun, weird acts. Does that remain fun for you?
    Howard Stern: Where else could you go? We are like a beacon of light. Where do these people go? "The Gong Show" never took the talent seriously. This is network TV. This will survive that format because of variety.

    Zap2it: Have you considered being a judge on other shows?
    Howard Stern: I would be bored on a show because how many times can you listen to a singer?

    Zap2it: Have you changed as a judge?
    Howard Stern: Now I am really relaxed judging. I give constructive criticism. You want to make sure you are encouraging. Most people are very serious. You don't want to humiliate acts.

    Zap2it: How does shooting some of the show at Radio City Music Hall make a difference?
    Howard Stern: Radio City just matters. It makes it more important.

    They hired Howard to be outspoken and provocative....Simon Cowell on steer-roids!

    Great interview, Howard does a good job distinguishing AGT from the other talent shows and distinguishing his judging from the run of the mill celebs who put no thought into it. No wonder other reality shows are in the ratings sh*tter and AGT is going up and dominating the ratings.

    Is it me or do the answers to those first two questions seem totally irrelevant to what he was being asked..maybe I'm not getting it, but it's almost like he thought he was answering a different question...

    Whoever the fuck Collins Key is must be a Buchwald client and Howard was looking for a way to wedge in a plug.

    -Stern is a big wigged pussy that was hired to be provocative......but failed to deliver.

    - The talent sucks. If we don't let shit acts through the show would last 3 episodes.

    Translation: after I spent lots of show time talking up American Idol, they never offered me a gig, so I had to resort to judging squirrels on waterskis and people whose 'talent' consists of getting hit in the nuts.

    he is so full of shit. And why doesn't he tell the truth about why he is the "relaxed" judge which is that he realized he is a comedic dud when doesn't have a writer or weirdos around him.

    If he tries to push that chin out any further, his lower jaw is going to pop off.

    I never got the Tiny Tim thing. I guess I'm not bright enough to appreciate that kind of Amazing talent?

    He was kitch (sp?). He was a really interesting guy because he was so out there. I remember a radio piece about him years back before he died. He still would play in clubs, and he took it very seriously. He'd prepare for the shows as if he was playing a packed MSG.

    I'm with you. Never quite got the comedic genius of "Santa Claus has got the AIDS this year."

    You just didn't get the nuance.
