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.

If you join Americal Idol, I for one will never watch again. In my opinion, you aren't worth 5 cents! Your radio show is the worst and you suck big time as a radio host. Please do us a favor and go find your 20 million some where else. American Idol deserves better!

This is STUPID!!! He's a 'shock jock' ...which translates to he doesn't even have enough talent to be a REAL radio jock/personality to the general population. So now he's going to be a TALENT JUDGE...who the F$(*&k....THOUGHT THAT MADE SENSE...??????????????? I'm DONE WATCHING... Howie get out of there while you can...show's tanking...TOOOOO many other GREAT show's to watch...The Voice, Sing-Off...X-Factor, DWTS...etc...AGT is becoming the Jerry Springer of talent shows...

Wow... all you Stern trash talkers are ignorant pathetic losers who probably have never heard a single show of his and know nothing about him. And TMZ, way to report out of context nonense. And love how people on her call Howard trash. You are on TMZ! KING OF TRASH SITES! Hahahah awww too bad so sad Howard is now the new judge. Thank God! Finally a reason to watch the show. Finally someone who knows talent. And now ratings will soar!

And FYI people... Howard Stern is trashy? Howard!?!?! YOU DO REALIZE SHARON OSBOURNE IS A JUDGE RIGHT! She is just as vulgar as you THINK Howard is.

It is apparent that you have your head up your ass. You are not worth $200,000.00. The only thing that is you sure is that you are an obnoxious individual and have no business judging talented people.
