Howard Stern will return to America's Got Talent.
The 58-year-old radio host impressed viewers with his performance on his first season of the show last year and NBC praised his "towering presence and opinions" when announcing his decision to sign up for a new series.
Paul Telegdy, president of NBC's alternative and late-night programming said, "Howard Stern's towering presence and opinions on last season's show as a new judge made a dramatic impact and added a sharper edge to the fascinating developments on stage."
Howard's fellow judge Howie Mandel is also set to return although Sharon Osbourne quit the panel earlier this year after claiming NBC fired her son Jack Osbourne via email from reality show Stars Earn Stripes following his diagnosis with multiple sclerosis (MS).
