Howie Mandel also reacts to PTC's concern over Stern's involvement on the talent show, saying 'It's ridiculous to think that he's bringing the Sirius show to 'America's Got Talent'.'

assures parents that he won't let cross the line on "". Seemingly responding to the Parents Television Council's concern over Stern's judging gig, the show's creator believes the shook jock is "not stupid" to enrage the group, but promises, "If he goes too far, he'll be kicked off."

, who has joined as a judge on the reality series since 2010, also backs NBC's decision to hire Stern. Calling PTC "ignorant" for attacking the radio host, he claims, "It's ridiculous to think that he's bringing the Sirius show to 'America's Got Talent'."

After NBC officially announced Stern as the new "AGT" judge to replace , PTC blasted both the network and the radio personality. "In an act of desperation by a flailing network, NBC has hired Howard Stern - a performer who is synonymous with shock, profanity and obscenity - as a judge on a prime-time talent competition," the group's president Tim Winter stated.

However, the Peacock's executive Paul Telegdy believes that "Howard Stern's larger-than-life personality will bring a thrilling new dynamic to America's Got Talent starting this summer." He further argued, "He's a proven innovator and his track record in broadcasting is truly remarkable. Howard is very passionate about this show and is fully committed to its future success."

Stern himself has dished on what people will see from him on the show. "I am going to tell you your kiddie has no talent...this nonsense of Howie and Sharon [Osbourne] putting through less than talented people has got to stop. Under my administration, there will be no impersonators winning," he gushed. "I don't want to hurt anyone's feelings, but feelings are going to be hurt."
