Howerd Stern to Rule Primetime Television!?!

One of the boldest moves in Prime-time television is the hiring of Howard Stern to be the new judge on America's Got Talent. Really!!? I thought this was a family show geared for all audiences in a prime-time slot when over 30 million viewers can see the show as it is. Now, with Howard Stern, how much will the ratings increase to get a glimpse, or be witness to prime-time TV getting a punch square in the jaw from remarks from Mr. Stern that would have Simon Cowell cringe. Of course this has to be expected as Simon is the guru behind this multimillion dollar venture.

If it isn't Broken

Was there any problem with Pierce? Is the reality/competition shows at such a point that shocking the audience with "Simon's 'Scowel" type-remarks are so common place that we have to bring out the proclaimed king of radio, the likes of Howard Stern to supposed PG-rated TV? It drives the question of how willing are we to watch people be broken down in front of millions of viewers. Their tears are wiped away and the next contestants approach and perform, knowing full well one of the three to four judges will politely shred them no matter how flawless the performance. We've seen it for years. Now 2012 can be the climax or ultimate fine-line between family entertainment and cable TV differences.

...Fix It!!

There are an exact amount of censored bleeps each show can have, and a similar number for how many 'passable" bad words are allowed. It will take Howard Stern months of practice to make it past the first episode! The show was not broken, but it will have to be fixed now that Simon has three shows in America. Maybe if the X Factor did not debut in America, the competition would have remained the same, leaving Mr. Pierce's job intact. So the predictions for America's Got Talent are certainly off the charts for the first few episodes. Everyone tuning in to see how far Howard Stern can take the young audience is par for the course, but the older generation of people will definitely be disgusted.

The King of Prime-Time?

On the other hand, Howard Stern has remained at the forefront of his profession in both radio and television; shocking us all along the way, so just maybe there will be a surprise in store for all of us as we may witness history in the making as Howard Stern performs with a balance of professionalism enough to keep the censors at bay, and his job on the show. What are the chances!?!
