It might be possible, well see, he said, adding: Theyd have to pay me a ton of dough because I already make a ton of dough.
Sterns five-year, $500 million contract with Sirius expires at the end of the year.
Responding to a television report speculating Fox would have to match his current annual salary, Stern replied: A $100 million to judge a karaoke contest? Yeah, I would do that show for $100 million.

Yuck! I won’t bother to watch this creep.
Geez, what is Simon thinking?
ditto- nor will my kids
Howard Stern is not a figure I choose to expose them to
Wonder how many subscriptions he brought to Sirius. Be interesting to see what his new contract will pay him.
msnbc is full of crap...stern said again this morning that he would not do it as the show will go down the tubes after simon leaves it....also there is a big fued between him and ellen....
Maybe Sirius can get into the black once they release that overrated creep.
...at least not yet, maybe Howard will bring his own?
I stopped watching when Ellen Degenerate joined the show. I damn sure won’t be watching if that bottom-feeder Stern is hired on.
Actually, they do have strippers, they just don't strip during "Idol." The show has come a long way since the season they booted a girl off for posing topless. Nowadays, it doesn't seem to matter WHAT a contestant does in their personal lives.
will he have them do Lap Dances for his vote?..............
Wouldn’t watch. No class. He’s sooooo overrated.
Remember, Simon Cowell sold his portion of Idol to Simon Fuller and a few others before the show came to America. Cowell is just an employee of Idol. He couldn't care less who replaces him as he has no equity stake in the production.
This is one reason he's leaving. He's bringing his own show, called something I forget, to Fox next fall.
Well, I am glad I don’t watch that stupid show. I can’t stand to even look at that disguting pig.
Well, that will be the last time I ever watch.
These remarks of Stern’s are good news. Idol may have already jumped the shark with Ellen.
Stern would totally ruin whatever enjoyment I currently get from watching the show. I don’t want to hear his childish assessment of a contestant’s boobies.
What is he thinking? = A talentless but vocal lesbian and a sexually perverted deviant are fit to entertain the American masses and to pass “judgment” on contestants who in most cases have more talent than the entire panel combined, THAT is what he is thinking. But, the contestants are just the “little people” and haven’t you heard = sexual perversion is “in” and if you don’t like it, we will do everything in our power to destroy you.
That’s all I want to watch- hollywwod billionaires insulting semi-retarded kids. And I am using the term retarded the way it’s supposed to be used.
stern v ellen could be fun to watch.
remember that stern ripped rosie apart a few years ago.
FOX will be making a huge mistake if they sign this sorry excuse for a man.
“A $100 million to judge a karaoke contest?”
Karaoke contest: That is kinda funny.
I have not watched the show. My husband did until this season when they brought Ellen on. Howard will not bring him back. And I will continue to find something better to do with my time - I need to start a quilt for my granddaughter.
FOX can’t find a career dance teacher or acting coach with a flamboyant personality, at a million dollars a season?
Gimmie a friggin break! There are several cities in the US where you could stand blindfolded, throw a rock, and hit a gregarious talent “developer”...Who have been critiquing wanna-bes for decades. Who would just *love* to tell people the unvarnished truth about their talent or lack of it. teachers who have a pent up desire to do so...without losing their meal tickets.
That he’s leaving at the end of the season to start the American version of “The X Factor.”
When Simon leaves, I quit watching.
Actually, I thought Ellen did well this week.
Ahhhhh ...I didn't realize he wasn't the shot-caller.
My wife is an AI fan.
She thinks that the end is near for this show.
Count me in for the first episode.
I did too.
If they turn to Howard Stern they will have jumped the shark.
