When Howard Stern first landed a job at “America’s Got Talent” earlier this year, he had told David Letterman that one of his goals was going to be continuing to do his late-night interviews to promote the show on “The Late Show with David Letterman” — which just so happens to be one of his favorite hangouts. While this didn’t happen thanks in part to his new association with NBC, Howard did show up on another show set in New York Wednesday night — “Late Night with Jimmy Fallon” — and proceeded to bash Jay Leno extensively in the process.
At one point during the interview, Fallon told Stern about some of the people that he called in addition to him to ask for advice concerning his chat with President Obama earlier this year — and one of them was “The Tonight Show” host, who has also interviewed Obama in the past. This basically led to Stern booing Jay, mocking the way in which he talks, and nearly inciting a riot within the audience after they joined in a chorus of jeers towards Leno.
Away from this, we actually have a pretty fascinating interview about how Stern first decided to do “AGT,” what he ended up learning from the experience, and whether or not he was okay with Howie Mandel trying to pull any practical jokes on him. (He’s not.)
Are you excited to see Howard make his judging debut Monday night?
