PIZZA FEARS NO ONE ... especially not a group of angry Howard Stern-hating parents -- which is why Pizza Hut is refusing to pull its advertisements from the controversial new season of "America's Got Talent."

A rep for the Pizza company tells TMZ, Pizza Hut has no plans to remove its ads from the show -- despite the Parents Television Council clamoring for sponsors to yank their support over the show's new judge ... shock jock Howard Stern.

The rep tells us, "Pizza Hut strives to maintain the highest standards of quality and excellence in our communications to the public. Our advertisements are no exception, and are designed to draw attention to our products and appeal to a broad audience."

The rep adds, "Unfortunately, we may not always success in generating a positive impact on every guest, and we apologize if our methods offend some."

Pizza power.

These Parents Groups need to get a f***ing life. I doubt they've ever even listened to Stern. He's fairly tame by today's standards. He mostly sits around talking about his hot wife, pets and watching reality shows nowadays. Sure, he'll have strippers on sometimes but as if he's going to bring that on this show. It's not as if NBC is going to let him bring strippers on stage to ride a sybian.

These parent groups need to be euthanized. I'm sure they're f***ing up their kids more than anybody else is.

Good for Pizza Hut and any others that ignore those that think they should decide what I can watch. Turn the f-ing channel if you don't like something.

Well, Pizza Hut has drawn attention to its products with this loser, but it's negative attention. I see a lot of Dominos pizzas in my family's future!

Good for Pizza Hut. I'm so sick of these groups. "You're offending me, you're offending me". Well what makes you so darn special that the rest of the world is supposed to tip toe around to make sure you're not offended?????


I get offended all the time. I don't try to have shows or people taken off the air. I change the channel.


It would be fine if they were just voiceing their opinion about it...but trying to get someone off the air?? Why should my television viewing cater to your childs needs? I didn't have the kid.


Be a parent and monitor your own childs viewing. And if you can't do that, teach them the difference between reality and entertainment. Heck throw the TV out and give them a book. Just leave the rest of us out of it.


I look forward to seeing Howard on the show.

If you don't like the show, don't watch it. I can't stand Piers Morgan and that woman, whatever her name is, who is only famous because she married someone famous, she drives me up a wall. So I don't watch. Simple as that.

Uh    

Irregardless of Sterns involvement, Pizza Hut makes the worst Pizza in the United States. You would be better off eating the carton it comes in.

You know what I always did when a show or a movie came on that contained somebody I didn't like or contained subject matter I didn't want my kids to see? I watched something else.

If you don't like HS (I don't), don't watch the show. Don't worry about how other people raise their children and what they let them see on tv, it's none of your business.

I am not in a parents group but I think Howard Stern is a pervert and I will not be watching AGT anymore or buying from Pizza Hut. These talent reality shows hardly have anyone that can judge real talent.
