HOWARD STERN CLEANED UP HIS ACT ON “AMERICA’S GOT TALENT” FOR 15 MILLION DOLLARS
Howard Stern reported for work in Los Angeles to start taping auditions for “America’s Got Talent” and he got a rousing ovation from the audience – considerably more than his fellow judges, Sharon Osbourne and Howie Mandel. He proved to be a merciless judge, but not without compassion. Stern tried to let down the awful acts gently with a joke or anecdote, and he felt particularly bad about disappointing child contestants. Howard absolutely cleaned up his usually off-color act but managed to retain his smart observations and sense of humor so his fans were not disappointed. After all, he has to earn that 15 million dollar salary.
