"America's Got Talent" honcho Simon Cowell and judge Howie Mandel backed up Howard Stern today ... big time! We got 'em standing up to the President of the Parents TV Council ... who's seriously bent about Stern's move to NBC..

Plus,  Dan Patrick tells us why the Chris Paul trade (take 2) makes the impossible seem possible -- LA could really become a CLIPPER town! Also, Babawa Walters' retirement "fib" at the White House ... and why everyone's afraid to get married.

Howard has gotten so mellow! He also is an entertainer. For some reason people just don't get it. I will watch AGT to see Howard. I think he will breathe new life into the show!

Everybody knows that people are sick of reality shows and talent shows. If figures that Howard Stern is jumping on that bandwagon now that it's jumping the shark. What a weenie.

Howard Stern doesn't know talent at all...when Selena was killed he had no idea who she was and made vile comments about her...i will not be watching AGT anymore...and neither will millions of Latins who admired Selena.

I think AGT will need those "parents who don't understand" to survive with Howard Stern on there. And he's one of those "parents"--he's old enough to be a grandparent!
