NYPOST: You probably wake up to Howard Stern — but do you want to go to sleep with him, too?
Over the weekend, word broke that Jay Leno is being pushed out to make room for the younger Jimmy Fallon — but sources close to the radio man tell The Post that Stern, in turn, is being “groomed” by NBC as the new Fallon.
Leno’s contract runs out on the “Tonight Show” in 2014, and he’s on the fast track out, despite his great ratings.
Sure, Stern loves the judging gig on “America’s Got Talent,” but even Piers Morgan and Sharon Osbourne could take just so much of extreme cyclists and dog acts. I never figured it was really about that for Stern — it was about creating a Howard that was palatable for TV.
