Throughout his prolific career on the radio, Stern has tried several times — some more successfully than others — to transition to the small screen. The Howard Stern Show aired from 1990-1992 in New York and, beginning in 1994, E! ran a half-hour version of his radio show for 11 years. During this time, The Howard Stern Radio Show also briefly aired on Saturdays on CBS in 1998, but his material proved too risqué.
Stern, 59, joined America's Got Talent last summer and will return this season.
