“American Idol” producers are eager to hire Howard Stern to replace Simon Cowell as the show’s tough-talking judge, sources tell Page Six.

An insider said that producers of the hit Fox show say Stern, America’s highest-paid radio personality, is their top choice to take over from Cowell, who leaves at the end of this season. They approached the King of All Media after he repeatedly mentioned on-air that his exclusive Sirius XM Radio deal expires next January and he was open to other offers. Cowell was paid $50 million a year.

A source connected to “Idol” said, “It’s one of the few shows that could compete with Stern’s $100 million-a-year Sirius contract, and ‘Idol’ bosses think he’d be even nastier than Simon. [NY Post]

Why doesn’t anyone listen to me and realize that the only person who can replace Simon Cowell in Idol is Jamie Foxx. JFoxx has everything you would want in a celebrity judge.  He has credibility, a devastating sense of humor, he can be punishingly blunt, and his facial expressions are priceless.  In my opinion, he WILL be a better judge than Simon, if only Idol could see it as clearly.  Screw Stern for this job.
