Perez Hilton is pretty sure that he could replace Simon Cowell as a judge on “American Idol” — and it seems that the feeling is mutual. Cowell may not have much to say about Howard Stern replacing him, but he’s got Perez’s back in his campaign to take his spot at the judges’ table on the show.
Similarly, if that beastial Cretan Howard Stern replaces Cowell the same effect will occur. American Idol’s a fun show to watch. But if Cowell is replaced by the likes of either of those two, it will become completely inane. And I won’t watch.
I think someone with an actual background in the production side of the industry ought to replace Simon. Randy’s a musician, Ellen’s a pop savant, Kyra’s a writer. They need a producer. Not a loud weirdo (and that describes both Stern and Hilton).
