Howard Stern will be returning to the America's Got Talent judges' panel next season, NBC announced today. The network had hoped Stern's hyped addition last season would boost ratings, but that jump didn't materialize, and the summer series slipped in ratings. According to The Hollywood Reporter, network insiders blame poor scheduling with its premiere and hiatus for the London Olympics for the decline in ratings.
Auditions have already begun, but the judge's panel will need some quick additions; Sharon Osbourne has already said she won't be returning to judge next season.
