Is America ready to judge the talent of professional farters? We shall see. Producers of America's Got Talent are currently negotiating a deal with Howard Stern to bring him in as a new celebrity judge. Seems like a pretty bold move for the series. It's been on the air for like five seasons. Why choose to make it awesome now?

It's true that no agreement has been made yet, so this could just as easily not work out. Stern would be an excellent addition to the show and a good reason to tune-in. Should things not work out, however, the producers have a lot of options. They should at least consider these nine people as back-ups.

Norm MacDonald

With his schedule freed up by the cancellation of Sports Show with Norm MacDonald, the delightfully looney comic has nothing but time to reinvigorate America's Got Talent. He's proven that he's not shy to proclaim when somebody sucks. Just ask Carrot Top, O.J., and David Hasselhoff.

Sean Penn

There is not an actor alive that values the craft more than Sean Penn. He's fiercely protective of his fellow make-pretenders and never unwilling to share his opinions. His judgements would carry a weight that Sharon Osbourne's never could. Plus, it would be funny to watch him have to evaluate a guy who plays tuba while balancing on a unicycle.

Kris Jenner

Kris Jenner has been working for years to establish herself as a top-notch talent manager. Why not go to the source? She's likely seen hundreds of artists striving to make it big. That kind of experience will come in handy on this show. However, I doubt the censors will allow contestants to film themselves rubbing their genitals against Ray J's. It, technically, doesn't count as a talent.

That Guy From No Doubt

What else is he up to?

Snoop Dogg

Having sold off his street credentials many years ago, Snoop Dogg has proved there's no gig he won't take. He was in Racing Stripes for Christ's sake. Not to mention, he always seems super high, which means he has an eye for quality. Whether that eye carries over into the realm of talent-spotting, or if it only applies to marijuana connoisseurship remains to be seen. Dude gets some good sh*t though.

Gary Busey

Since his spiral into total and complete lunacy, Gary Busey is contractually obligated to appear on every reality show. He's ratings gold. I'm surprised he isn't already a judge. Maybe he's considered an insurance risk. If so, producers should do their all to get him on as talent. It's about time we see a man wrestle and skin a live wolf on national television.

Whitney Cummings

Let's not forget that this is an NBC show. The network will jam Whitney down our throats until we all welcome her sitcom with open arms. It's going to take a lot more than that, though. They may want to look into having her join Rock Center with Brian Williams.

Courtney Stodden & Doug Hutchison

How are the judges expected to know exactly who is talented if they don't have someone talentless with which to compare the contestants? That's where Courtney & Doug come in. Plus, her dumb critiques would make for excellent web junk, which, in turn, would make my job a ton easier. Let's make this happen.
