Howard Stern

$20 Million Is for Chumps!

12/15/2011 9:09 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF



0_7kxfg2n6_1_uex5urt4(1)Howard Stern pooh-poohed the notion that he was only pulling in 20 million measly dollars a year for his freshly-minted role as a judge on "America's Got Talent."

Stern was out in NYC today -- hours after the announcement -- when a camera dude asked if he was making $20 mil.  Stern's response:  "Do I work for that little?"  Stern laughed -- yes, to the bank.

The reason the camera guy asked the question -- there were reports he was settling on $20 mil.  But let's put this in context.  Stern signed a 5-year deal with Sirius XM for an estimated $400 million.

Short story -- he's way richer than you.

People that hate Howard Stern never listened to him. They just going by the opinion of super right wing people that would probably hate anybody thats not PG rated. In reality he is very smart, funny and opinionated. A good fit.

I've loved watching AGT now for years. This is the end of watching that show for me. I can't believe they'd pick someone like him to replace Piers. I won't even try watching the new season o****T with Howard on it.

It's obvious that everyone who watches this show has their own judgements on what is and what isn't talent. It would be just as easy to replace Morgan with one of you. This show isn't about talent...it's about selling soap...like any other TV show. Get over yourselves.

The no talent hack is a chump. He is going to be a judge on a crappy show. No wonder T V is in the toilet.

If you want GARBAGE (Howard Stern), truck on down to the GARBAGE DUMP.
----------------------------------------------------------
HOWARD STERN, like many (Simon Cowell, Ryan Seacrest, Kardashians etc.) FEAST off the STUPIDS of the world. That's where the MONEY is.
----------------------------------------------------------
Yes, MERRY CHRISTMAS (don't be afraid to say it) and all the other holidays with family and friends.
