From Bad to Worse? NBC May Be Unleashing Howard Stern on Late Night
We’re totally OK with the possibility of Jay Leno’s departure from late-night television, but this is a step in the wrong direction.
The New York Post says NBC is preparing to put Howard Stern in Jimmy Fallon’s place once Fallon makes the move to 11:35. Mind you, when last we looked, NBC hadn’t confirmed that Leno was leaving. But if he is, so be it. He’s just so blah! Howard Stern on the other hand? Not a fan. I stopped paying attention years ago when I couldn’t take the crudeness anymore. Then he went to America’s Got Talent and apparently became America’s Sweetheart.
The tabloid paper quotes his wife Beth Ostrosky Stern, “We were in a hotel and all these little kids recognize him now as the judge from ‘America’s Got Talent.’ Usually it’s their dads. But now it is screaming little kids. People are now seeing him for who he really is.”
Once again, we’re going to suggest Aisha Tyler. A new voice, funny, a fan of The Walking Dead… who’s with us?
