Comments & Discussion:

I vote for Steve Wynn. I think a new drinking game would promise speedy intoxication if you were required to do a shot every time Mr. Wynn managed to plug one of his properties, restaurants, shops, etc. during the broadcast.

Steven Tyler has a better shot at replacing Simon Cowell than he does replacing Robert Plant....

If Courtney Love were to get the gig, I'd have to start watching A.I. as the train wreck potential is high.

Personally, I'm going for Mel Gibson. They can probably get him on the cheap at this point, and based on the tapes, he can be as mean or meaner than Simon (Although I doubt Simon has ever called anyone a "glum c-word".) and apparently is just as good of a judge of talent.......

Walt Disney's Frozen Head (200-1)
The Trop's old tic-tac-toe chicken (tie)
A twelve sided die from the hobby store (15 hit points)
Actual musical ability (no chance)

Diddy at 200-1 is very interesting. I could totally see him fitting in that show.

Seriously Jamie Foxx at 60-1 is the steal of the board. They brought him back this year as a mentor and specifically stated it was because he was so good last year. I also like Bret Michaels at 50-1, his performance on this year's finale was very well received.

Wow, I know way too much about American Idol for an adult male.

odds of me watching, 1,000,000,000,000 to one.

Baba Booey! Baba Booey! Howard Stern's penis! Baba Booey! Stern would make an interesting judge for sure but I would bet on someone who really doesn't have a career anymore and needs the spotlight like Jennifer Lopez.

Easy -- the clear winner has been left off the board. Brett Favre 5-1 unless he retires...again... Props to who suggested Courtney Love, that would be fantastic TV.

"I would bet on someone who really doesn't have a career anymore"
sounds to me that Stern qualifies under that criteria. remember, Hoo-Hoo howie invented AI, and talent shows, and walking, and breathing.....

How can you leave "The Most Interesting Man in the World" off your list?

His legend precedes him, the way lightning precedes thunder. He once had an akward moment, just to see how it feels. His beard alone has experienced more than a lesser man's body. Alien abductors have asked him to probe them.

Stay thirsty my friends, stay thirsty.

I think they should put Pamela Anderson and Tommy Lee on there. Make it an all out white trash event.
Jessica Simpson is to dumb to do anything.
If the metal heads took the show over , you'd never see any Adam Lamberts again and I think the main concern would be that none of the contestants know how to scream or growl. Guitar playing would be a plus.

And P. DIDDY doing it...I've got five words
"I'm shuttin down the studio."

Chuckmonster and DonnyMac 2111-1 (that's right a slightly better chance than Rush)

After the back shave on the first episode tho the ratings would go through the roof and even I would watch that "reality" show drivel.

Stern is at 1000-1 for good reason. He was joking about becoming a judge on A.I. and someone took his joking seriously and the media ran with it and he just went along with the story. The only way he'd be a judge on A.I. would be if they moved the show to New York (While he did enjoy LA when he was out there a few months ago, I just think he'd be miserable after a few weeks in LA. Plus he's not big on flying and would not be making appearances at all of the auditions.) Anyway, Howard is probably going to re-sign at Sirius/XM for another few years (Rumors are that a deal will be inked sometime next month.) and then retire.

My Giant Alaskan Malamute, Jonesy, howls to good rock....and he is a better conversationalist than Paula A. Plus he would work alot cheaper than everyone else listed.....

I think........Justin Bieber lol

I think that they will bring on someone with true soul like Elvis Presely, Frank Sinatra, Frank Zappa, or maybe Hall and Oates!
