Howard's 'American Idol' Plans Might Include Big Changes

Howard told the crew he was planning to make some big changes if he takes over Simon Cowell's 'American Idol' chair: "I'm not just giving opinions on music. I'm giving opinions on Ellen..."

Howard said he wanted to turn the tables on Ellen: "People who've worked with her have told me she's impossibly rude."

Still, Howard didn't think it would happen: "It'd be very difficult for them to get me to do this job."
