A caller asked if Howard was really in negotiations to be the next judge on "America's Got Talent" as had been reported all weekend, but Howard denied it: "I am not the next judge. I have no deal with "America's Got Talent"...there's nothing here to report." Howard continued: "I am very complimented that every time a judge seems to leave one of these shows, my name comes up immediately." Howard laughed that the gig would be a good time: "I would be certainly honored to sit with Howie and Sharon and judge these lunatics." But there would have to be changes--Howard noted that he would never tolerate the schticky inter-judge rivalries, non-Blue Man dance troupes, or the (seemingly) free passes Howie Mandel extends to goofy contestants: "There would be no nonsense."
