99 Words About ... The savior of 'America's Got Talent'


He's made stars out of more freaks than P.T. Barnum.

He's even made paying for radio seem second nature.

Now, Howard Stern is embarking on his greatest challenge yet: making "America's Got Talent" (8 p.m. Monday, KSNV-TV, Channel 3) must-see TV.

It's already summer's most-watched show, but it's always too concerned with unearthing the next Susan Boyle-style, feel-good triumph to embrace its inner "Gong Show."

Every season's dominated by singers, when America clearly needs more jugglers, unicyclists, even some good plate-spinners - assuming such a thing exists.

The crazier the acts the better.

And who better than Stern to champion them?
