The Tinseltown rumor mill continues to run rampant with reports that the 2013-14 season will be Jay Leno’s last at the “The Tonight Show,” potentially to be replaced by popular NBC comedian Jimmy Fallon.
However, an inside source tells FOX411’s Pop Tarts column that there’s another famous funnyman in the running for the top job.
“Howard Stern. They love him at NBC and ‘America’s Got Talent’ is doing really well,” said the source. “He’s very self-censored, so it works well. And let’s face it, Howard Stern would be great at it – and I can’t imagine that he wants to do radio forever.”
Self-described as the “King of All Media,” the long-time radio personality joined the NBC television family when he replaced Piers Morgan on the “America’s Got Talent” judging panel in 2012. He recently announced that he was returning to the show for the 2013 season.
And according to at least some entertainment industry experts, giving Stern a spot on the couch is simply genius.
"Stern’s a fascinating option: he’s an iconic broadcast personality with a huge following and he’s an incredibly skilled, fast on his feet interviewer, which may make up for some deficiencies when it comes to the traditional monologues and scripted comedy kits of late-night talk shows," said Hollywood pop culture reporter, Scott Huver. "He’s proven he can clean up his notoriously crass radio act for television, and Stern would probably be wise to leave the porn stars, strippers and freak show sidekicks largely behind him – but he could get a lot of comedy mileage out of a ‘reformed bad boy’ approach. Making things even more interesting, Stern has been outspoken about his personal disdain for Leno in recent years, refusing to make nice after they became network-mates."
Entertainment writer, Mikey Glazer, too gave Stern the thumbs up.
“Heck yeah, it would work. The industry loves Sterns interviews. They're utterly compelling. His E! Show was the longest running show in E! history and highest rated thing on the channel at the time, aired in the same time slot (late night) and was him doing celeb interviews that totally worked,” he enthused.
Although Glazer is skeptical that the cutthroat, routinely raunchy comedian would even take on the task.
“Howard is very friendly with Jimmy Kimmel, and they'd be going head to head. Kimmel hosts barbeques and parties for him when he comes to LA,” Glazer added. “He would have to be in LA, as I'm not sure NBC would ever move the Tonight Show to NYC. Lastly, he doesn’t need the stress of carrying a show himself.”
Reps for Stern and NBC did not respond to a request for comment. NBC had previously referred to reports that Leno would retire and Fallon would fill his shoes as “categorically false,” and a rep for Leno declined to comment on speculation.

Ugh... how embarrassing is that in 2013? Howie gave himself that title back before the internet existed, and his utter failure to figure out the first thing about the biggest form of modern media... the internet, is embarrassingly ironic.

Let's see... he blocked Sirius from streaming his show on the internet... he sends his lawyers out to threaten lawsuits against anybody who dares show any of his content on the internet without paying up... he shut down his own official message board, and he demanded that his biggest fan message board shut down because he doesn't like all of the hurtfulness.

When it comes to the media of the internet, Howie is far from "The King"... he's barely counts as a court jester.

So is this before or after he replace Fallon?
He's going to replace both of them. A 2 hour block of Stern 5 nights a week. And a weekend recap show. And a special featuring all of his celebrity friends every Christmas. And he'll be replacing Bob Costas as the lead broadcaster for the Olympics.

I'd still be surprised if he took this gig. He might just to say he is better than Leno, but his content isn't even that good on radio anymore. It is all Ronnie drama, with Howard and Robin sounding like two old curmudgeons when the topic of anything political comes up.

As an interviewer, I can't imagine how he would be with the limitations of network television on his questions, plus he'd probably be required to toss a lot if softballs out there. Jay certainly does now. The mainstream celebs doing the show don't want Stern questions or else they would do his show now. Granted, he is definitely more Hollywood friendly than he used to be, but I doubt he'd sink to the cheeseball level of a Leno interview.

Again, I could be wrong seeing I never thought he would do that awful talent show. I also don't think he would want to compete with his pal Jimmy Kimmel or Letterman, who he has looked up to his entire career.

I'd be surprised if he took the gig because he's not even being considered. This is another manufactured leak by his management team.

But see the thing with TV people is they see tv is the only viable media outlet.

It is kind of like the new pope being almost 80 and people were praising the church for the "youth movement."

Well, that is young compared to almost 90, right?

KING OF ALL MEDIA...

Woah, we can't say Hoo Hoo Fan Network here?
