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.

Howard has a voice and a face for radio. How much money NBC and Sirius want to throw at this waste of time is their business. Stupid questions on the street will get smarmy answers. Didn*****ch AGT before. Will continue that trend.

So, let's put this in context: Sirius paid Howie $400 MILLION years ago which ended up wrecking (no: destroying) their satellite music offerings AND forced a merger with XM to, in part, cover his salary. Point here is, fan or not, the dude is overpaid and leaves chaos in his 1% salary wake! Sad.

ok    

I'll take Stern over Piers any day. Piers comes off as an over compensating douche. He literally looks down his nose at people when he speaks.

I liked Howie, not big on Howard. If this is what the next season has in store we'll be skipping it. Too bad it was a fun family show.
