"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.

(1:40) Howie Mandell is on the phone -- he says it's "ignorant" to think Howard Stern is bringing his Sirius show antics to "AGT." 
(8:00) Does that mean no anal ring toss? 
(12:50) ESPN's Dan Patrick is on the line -- he says not-so-fast on crowning Chris Paul's Clippers the kings of L.A.
(13:50) Dan says the pressure's now on the Lakers to make a good trade.
(14:20) How does Dan -- a big Stern fan -- think Howard will do on "Talent"?
(23:40) Did Barbara Walters lie to President Obama's face when she told him she's retiring next year?
(32:40) Ellen's classic coming out scene.
(35:02) President of the Parents TV Council Tim Winter is upset about Stern on "Talent" ... and calls in to have his say.
(44:02) Who better to talk about Howard Stern on "Talent" than the show's mega-producer Simon Cowell?
(46:30) Harvey asks Simon about the "X Factor" controversy between Paula Abdul and Nicole Scherzinger.
(48:05) Simon suggests his singer on "Factor" has a target on her back.
(49:30) Ryan Seacrest may take over "Today" -- amazing how many jokes Simon already has for it.

Posting stories for the sake of "hits" at the expense of other peoples pain is disgusting, but apparently the norm for TMZ these days.

I hope no one at TMZ has to suffer the loss of a child at any age. But if it should happen, be prepared to have your colleagues post your pain for all to see and make horrible comments about.

Howard rules. All of you commenting that he's foul-mouthed show your ignorance and that you don't listen to him. Is he adult oriented? Yes! But he's a pro and consumate entertainer who will understand the audience. For this type of show, he's the next Simon Cowell.

Charles is a dumbass. In his attempt to be funny he just came off like an ungrateful douchbag. That dude really needs to stop trying to be funny. Better pucker-up.

Stern is a pro, he can navigate FCC rules with his hands tied behind his back.
