NBC's hit summer reality series America's Got Talent will be receiving an overhaul at the judges table next season, with reports surfacing that Howard Stern is in talks to be the new judge. Piers Morgan, who has judged the reality series since its inception, announced on his CNN talk show Piers Morgan Tonight that he will not return to America's Got Talent next season.
Nothing is official yet, but insiders claim that Howard Stern is eyeing a deal that could land him $15 million a year on America's Got Talent. He would join Sharon Osbourne and Howie Mandel at the judges table next season, if the deal goes through.
America's Got Talent normally runs on NBC from the end of May until mid-September. Contestants with all forms of talent, ranging from singing to bizarre stage acts, vie for the top prize of $1 million.
NBC hasn't announced a premiere date yet for the next season of America's Got Talent, but, even if Howard Stern doesn't finalize a deal, there will be a new judge alongside Sharon Osbourne and Howie Mandel.
