Howard Stern is facing many critics after accepting his new judging gig on America’s Got Talent by parents groups who don’t see him as a good fit.
However Stern is brushing the dirt off his shoulders, and insisting that he’s going to take the job seriously.
Bosses from the Parents Television Council have blasted NBC calling them “desperate” for hiring Stern, who hosts a foul mouthed, adult radio program.
Stern appeared on Piers Morgan tonight, the talk show of the man he will be replacing on AGT to explain,
“Networks shudder for people like this. I guess they get their printer out and they make a letterhead and they start to complain that I’m some sort of weird pervert who is going to convert Americans into some kind of zombie sex fiends.”
He adds, “What I can assure you and the rest of America is what I’m looking at here is to be a very good judge. I take it seriously… I think (NBC) became enamored with me because they knew I was honest. Whatever you think of me, I will give you an honest opinion. My goal is to find real talent, to actually find someone who can become a major superstar.”
