“America’s Got Talent” is poised to have a very different look and feel to it when it premieres Monday night, May 14. Radio host and so-called “shock jock” Howard Stern is taking over as one of the judges. How do you think he’ll do?
It didn’t take long for the Parents Television Council to issue a letter to 91 different advertisers asking them to consider if they want to be associated with him and the show, claiming he will corrupt America’s children with his non-family-friendly antics.
But the PTC has not yet called for a full-on boycott. Instead, it says it is keeping an eye on Stern. PTC president Tim Winters tells the press, “Trusting him to do the right thing is like
trusting North Korea to do the right thing,” and says he’ll give the show three episodes before deciding to call for an advertiser boycott.
Stern’s response? “Tune in, check out if I’m a demon.”
What say you, Zappers? Is Stern going to be the end of the family-friendly “AGT” as we know it? Vote below in our poll and be sure to tune in for his big debut Monday night, May 14, at 8 p.m. ET/PT on NBC.
