Well, as I mentioned previously, American Idol producers have stated that they would love to have Howard Stern fill the judges seat that will be left by Simon Cowell after this season. Now here’s Stern’s side, and for those who are skeptical (and I’ll admit I’m one of them), it doesn’t look good. It seems that he would, in fact, be interested, but it would take about 100 million dollars. That’s a big chunk of change, and if it doesn’t work out, the ones who will really lose are the contestants and the viewers. Like I’ve said, I will keep an open mind, but it can only stay open for so long.
