howard stern americas got talent season 9 'America's Got Talent': Howard Stern in for Season 9Howard Stern revealed on his radio show Tuesday (Nov. 19) that he has signed on for another season of NBC’s popular summer variety competition program “America’s Got Talent” — but it wasn’t an easy decision.

“I really did struggle with the deicsion .. I really wanted to decide if this was going to take away too much of my free time,” says Stern. “Did I really still enjoy doing it? Did I have something to say? Is it something I should be involved with still?”

He adds that while the gig may have “started out as a goof,” he’s given it a lot of thought and that NBC adjusted the scheduling to accommodate him, so he’s going back.

“The big black hole in me that demands attention … it won. I am going back for one season more.”

What do you think, “AGT” fans? Excited for the return of Stern?
