|Stern makes a perfect Talent judge. Mark Seliger/NBC|
Scott also wondered if Howard Stern will give America's Got Talent a ratings boost. Usually ratings gold, Stern had little impact Monday, with AGT premiering to about the same level it opened with last season (although it was a particularly competitive night). I think Stern's a perfect judge--he's blunt, smart and direct--but, really, this show isn't about the judges as much as some other star search shows. Consider who the big draw was on just concluded Britain's Got Talent--a dog!!
