NBC confirmed today that Howard Stern will back on America’s Got Talent in the summer of 2013. Although NBC has not yet released any information as to who may be joining the judging panel, Howard has made it known he would love to be sitting next to Rosie O’Donnell.
“Rosie and Howard have had a tough history but now they are good friends,” a friend of Stern`s tells Huffington Post. “He thinks she is a great talent and will bring a new energy to America’s Got Talent.”
“NBC wants to keep Howard happy, and the chemistry between the judges is what makes the show a huge success,” a network insider says. “Just think what Rosie did when she joined ‘The View’ suddenly the show became a must see on television. At the moment, a list of names exists, but if it were solely up to Howard, Rosie would get the job.”
The Huffington Post confirmed that if offered the position Rosie would definitely consider it.
