(Newser) – This time, it's true: Howard Stern is coming to primetime TV as a judge on NBC's America's Got Talent. He confirmed the rumors on his Sirius/XM show today, reports USA Today. Cue immediate outrage from the Parents Television Council, which tells TMZ that "a performer who is synonymous with shock, profanity, and obscenity" has no place on TV. Maybe, but Stern is a savvy broadcaster and can be a "charmer," notes the Los Angeles Times' Morning Fix blog, so this might work out fine.
